Pepsi Cola in Buena Park is another client with whom we have built a professional relationship. In the past, we assisted the company when it undertook a rebranding with manufacturing plant signs. This time, the management team contacted us to discuss signs that solve safety issues for warehouses in Orange County, CA. Although the inside of the facility itself did not need the signage, there was a concern that trucks entering or leaving the location would not be able to see pedestrians crossing.
After talking through potential signage solutions, we proposed a movable base sign. The hollow base holds 100 pounds of sand, which prevent tipping. Next, our graphic artists designed a large aluminum composite sign that urges drivers to stop, signals the presence of a crosswalk and warns against blocking pedestrian walkways. The yellow color of the sign’s base, combined with an overlaying reflective vinyl sheet that makes the sign easy to see after dark, mitigates the potential safety hazard. Since the company has already invested in other safety signage, this latest addition continues the dialog between the business and the drivers.
Is Your Safety Signage up to Par?
There are a number of ways to enhance the safety of your facility. In addition to putting protocols in place and training staff members to adhere to them, it is a good idea to invest in signage as well.
- Floor graphics. Durable vinyl or aluminum-based products adhere to any surface. Choose high color contrasts such as yellow and black, or red and white. Spell out one-word directions or warnings as needed.
- Post and panel signs. Make sure delivery trucks and service vehicles know where to enter and park. Keep regular consumer traffic and plant traffic separate to prevent smaller cars from entering the blind spots of larger trucks.
- Safety gear reminders. We recommend the use of vinyl-clad aluminum wall signs. They are durable and allow for a lightweight display that attaches to any wall surface. Use a combination of symbols and lettering to remind workers about the need for safety equipment wear and other protocol requirements.
Discussing Your Signage with an Expert in the Field
In some cases, clients are unsure if they have the need for warehouse safety signs. In Orange County, CA, as well as in neighboring Los Angeles County, you frequently see our technicians visiting facilities to inventory signage. Management teams understand that the changing neighborhood profiles of the plants now mix consumers living closer to industrial venues and doing business with neighboring companies. Separating ongoing manufacturing processes from pedestrians, who may be curious or lost, is an easy task for the right signage solutions.
When you would like our professionals to visit your location and evaluate the signage, contact us. We look forward to the opportunity of preparing an inventory of your current signs.
