Safety barriers form part of any industrial businesses safety strategy, but they belong in every workplace where hazards can be found. This includes office buildings where maintenance takes place and external locations when safety issues arise. Businesses need to be prepared ahead of time for safety issues, and the BITO collection of safety barriers and chains are an ideal piece of equipment to have in your building. Whether you’re searching for a plastic barrier chain or retractable belt barriers, BITO have all your workplace safety needs covered for crowd control.
Communication is vital to safety at work. Often, companies adopt a common-sense approach and highlight dangers with signs that signal no entry. It’s unfortunate, however, that these signs can often be disregarded, placing employees and visitors in dangerous situations. We’ve made our plastic chain and barrier post systems in a wide range of high visibility colours, such as the bright red and white plastic chain. A retractable wall mounted barrier can be easily situated around your site to ensure that no one enters a dangerous location when it would be unwise to do so. They also make for the perfect queue barrier to keep organisation at the forefront. Retractable barrier tape is not only brightly coloured, it brings with it connotations of safety and alerts people to the potential dangers ahead. It is also a visual marker for those who may not speak English as a first language, making it ideal for tourist locations and industrial sites where employees from different countries often work alongside each other.
Even for businesses that don’t require safety equipment every day, there are a myriad of uses that a plastic barrier system or some type of retractable barrier could have in your workplace. For instance, highlighting areas that are out of service in a public environment or securing the area around engineers fixing light fittings or air conditioning units. Heavy lifting is also a key aspect of most businesses, whether that’s manually or using machinery, and safety barriers can alert others that this is occurring. Safety barriers and corresponding equipment are vital when you need them, so ensure you have them ready and waiting.
