Floor Marking TIPS The Leaders In Visual SafetyTM
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Floor markings are one of the most 
important forms of communication 
within an industrial work setting 
since they set the visual 
tone in all areas of 
the facility. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Because Floor Marking is 
such an important aspect 
of communicating facility 
safety, it is essential to 
follow the industry 
best practices. 
These colors are widely accepted 
as color code recommendations 
which comply with interpretation 
of OSHA or ANSI codes. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
1 Standardizing Colors 
Floor marking tape is 
available in many 
different colors. 
Unless your needs are 
unique, standardize. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Colors should be consistent 
and understood throughout 
the facility, this prevents 
confusion and allows for 
easier training.* 
*The free Floor Marking Guide seen at the 
right is available on our website below.

2 Minimize the Number of Colors 
Many facilities make the mistake of getting as 
many different colors as 
possible, and using 
them to indicate all 
sorts of different things 
in the facility. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Instead, keep the number of 
colors you use in your floor 
marking tape to a minimum 
so it is easy for everyone to 
remember what each color 
means or indicates.

10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
3 Choosing Floor Marking Tape Colors 
Best practices do not specify exactly which 
color of tape should be used in your facility. 
However, tape colors should be chosen to 
ensure they are easy to see for everyone in 
the facility. 
In this example yellow tape 
is used to signify human 
walkways, for example. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
An example of bad 
floor marking is 
purchasing black 
or dark blue tape 
and applying it to a 
dark colored floor. 
Very hard to see 
from a distance by 
forklift drivers or 
other personnel.

4 Other Visual Hazard Communication Standards 
What types of visual 
hazard communication 
or safety standards are 
already in place? 
Floor Signs 
Wall Signs 
There are many styles 
available through the 
web site address below. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
You may want to copy the style 
or format of your current safety 
signs and continue with the 
same look and feel when 
it comes to the types 
of floor markings 
you deploy.

Many facilities begin 
implementing their floor 
marking strategy without 
having it fully planned out, 
which can lead to problems. 
Forklift Traffic 
Yellow & Black 
tape to be used. 
Order 500 rolls
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
It is important to have one 
person or group in charge 
of planning who then 
implements all of the floor 
marking best practices in 
the facility. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
The plan for the whole facility should be 
in place before application to help ensure 
a uniform look and feel. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
6 Get Input from all Areas & Depts. 
Input from the various parts of the facility 
should be considered. It is essential to 
gather together the needs of all the areas in 
the facility to make the floor markings as 
helpful as possible. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Managers throughout 
the facility should work 
with the floor marking 
standards team to meet 
needs and ensure uniformity. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
7 Take steps to keep markings visible 
Floor markings need to be placed 
in correct areas so they don’t 
end up getting covered or 
damaged from heavy 
traffic or equipment. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Some important issues which 
may hinder floor tape include: 
Cleaning – Floor tape should be 
washed along with the rest of the 
floor to prevent any dust, dirt, 
grease or other things from 
covering it up. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Covering - Procedures should be set up to 
avoid covering any floor tape with boxes, 
pallets, etc. 
Repairs – If floor tape becomes 
ripped or torn, it is important to 
fix it or replace it in a timely manner.

10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
8 Provide Detailed Training 
Detailed training needs 
to be provided to 
everyone in the facility. 
If not available, provide 
them with a guide. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
Employees need to know what floor markings 
mean, and what types of responses they 
should take when they see them. 
In truth, floor markings really won’t do any 
good if people don’t know what they mean. 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
9 Choose the Right Tape for the Job 
There are many different 
types of floor tapes on 
the market that vary in 
strength and durability. 
A few tape styles are: 
• SafetyTac Standard 
• ArmorTac 
• SafetyTac Hazard 
• Customizable 
Standard Hazard 
ArmorTac Custom 
www.creativesafetysupply.com • 866-777-1360
10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices 
It is important to 
consider the elements 
and traffic in the 
facility so a tape 
can be purchased 
that is capable of 
handling the demands 
of the environment without failing.

10 TIPS for Floor Marking Best Practices

best practices in your
