How Can Safety Barriers Help To Reduce Accidents In Your Warehouse?

You can never have too much protection within your warehouse. At Boplan, we’re always trying to make businesses as safe as possible and with our vast catalogue of safety products, you will be making good progress 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. Our products are the best way you can drastically improve the safety of your warehouse 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 serious safety problems. First and foremost, your vehicle fleet takes the brunt of the damage in the event of a collision. If you have safety barriers made from steel, they will reflect the shock back towards the source of the collision. In other words, the vehicle and the vehicle driver.

Because typically, safety barriers are fixed to the floor, this also gets damaged. The last thing your warehouse needs is disruption whilst the barrier, the vehicle and the floor are repaired – at a significant cost. With a Boplan safety barrier, any shock generated from a collision will be dispersed along the barrier, but it will retain it’s 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 out of nowhere 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.
