Get parking perfect for spring

13 April 2016

Now spring has sprung and the weather starts to warm, safety expert Arco is urging British businesses to freshen up its line markings across car parks, warehouses, loading bays and industrial sites, to keep workers safe.

At least one British worker needs hospital treatment every day after being injured by a forklift truck at work. Line markings on site can ensure that vehicles and pedestrians are allocated designated traffic routes so they are kept separate and ultimately reduce the risk of a worker being struck. 

In March 2015, an East Yorkshire company was prosecuted and fined more than £46,000 after two workers were seriously injured by two separate reversing forklift trucks. These incidents could have easily been prevented had work in the goods yard been better managed and pedestrian routes specified. 

Arco offers a range to help repair damaged floor and improve safety on site with line marking paint or tape. Exclusive offers are available at Arco on products such as Rocol EASYLINE Edge Paint, Buffalo Line & Spot Marking Paint and Arco Line Marker Spray Paint until 31st March 2016.
