Make no secret of it – you can never have too much protection within your warehouse. Here at Boplan, we’re always thriving to make businesses as safe as possible and with our vast catalogue of safety implements, you could be making strides in achieving just that.
There are many ways you can improve your business’ safety. Clear fire exits, a high standard of housekeeping, up to date Health and Safety policies and assembly points in the event of a fire – the list goes on. There is, however, one way you can drastically improve the safety of your warehouse interior without worrying about ongoing costs.
Safety Barriers – What Can They Prevent?
Installation of FLEX IMPACT safety barriers from Boplan can help prevent a number of atrocities. First and foremost, no longer will your vehicle fleet take the brunt of the damage in the event of a collision. If you have any safety barriers made from steel, they will bend or tear and disperse the shock back towards the source of the collision, in most scenarios this would mean the vehicle and the vehicle driver. And, consequently steel safety barriers will become too weak to stop the next impact.
It will also lead to both vehicle and floor damage due to the way the safety barrier is installed. The last thing your warehouse needs is disruption whilst the barrier, the vehicle and the floor are replaced – at a significant cost. With a Boplan safety bollard or barrier, you can rest assured that any shock generated from a collision will be dispersed amongst its own body, whilst retaining the original shape and appearance afterwards.
Our flexible safety barriers also reduce the level of pedestrian related accidents. They act as a warning towards pedestrian workers to be aware of any vehicles within the vicinity of the safety barriers, making it easier for them to avoid contact with vehicles.
Safety is No Laughing Matter
As mentioned at the beginning, there’s no such thing as over-protection in the warehouse. Accidents can occur from nothing but with the help of our safety barriers, you can radically reduce the likelihood them occurring. Warehouses are dangerous places if they are not maintained in a safe and legal manner – don’t take the risk.
