PathFinder, a line of wayfinding products from Graphic Products (Beaverton, OR), helps organize workflow and create barriers between employees and potential hazards. A wide variety of tapes and floor shapes can be used to visually communicate safe distances, designate forklift or pedestrian zones, add traction to slippery steps, light darkened hallways, and convey safety messages when and where workers need them most.
The line includes various categories of industrial-strength tape. Heavy-duty tape is rugged, standing up to long-term use, heavy forklift traffic, and spills when used on warehouse floors. Designed to eliminate slips and falls, OSHA-compliant tread tapes keep workers safe when used on catwalks, steps, and ramps.
Reflect tape directs attention and prevents accidents day and night when used on the back of trucks, rail cars, and around transportation barriers. Glow tape illuminates lowlight conditions when used on emergency exits, fuse boxes, and handrails. Print tape offers customizable safety messages to remind workers of required personal protective equipment, hazards, and warehouse traffic.
Graphic Products’ free COVID-19 Best Practice Guide provides real-world sign and label applications, OSHA/CDC recommendations, and visual examples manufacturers can use to analyze their safety communications. A free COVID-19 Safety webinar supports the practice guide.
