Keeping warehouse workers safe requires more than just helmets and goggles. Virtual Signs are one of the most important components of a safe work environment, out performing tape, paint or adhesive labels. Here’s how to effectively project safety signage throughout your warehouse or industrial space to ensure the safety of you and your crew, even in the most high-impact work environments.
The benefits of virtual signs
Warehouses often use tape, paint, and adhesive safety labels for safety signage, but machinery grease can obscure the paint or labels and everyday wear and tear eventually causes the signs to fade. Poor lighting conditions make it especially hard for workers to see the fading signage. This requires repeated expenditures for repainting or re-marking, and poor signage increases the risk of injury to a worker or visitor. The most effective way to ensure signage is never overlooked is by projecting the image with a Toptree virtual sign projector.
Projected safety signage has a longer lifetime than other forms of signage making it more cost effective and reliable. Instead of constantly replacing old signage, projected signage only requires a Toptree virtual sign projector to reflect the desired image, from bright red stop signs to crosswalks.
