How Does Floor Tape Improve OSHA Compliance?

Clear, detailed visual cues can help improve OSHA compliance in industrial facilities, warehouses, and workshops. While OSHA doesn’t require floor tape, specifically, regulations state that permanent aisles and passageways must be marked and unimpeded. Borderlines in work areas and aisles provide visual reminders of spaces that must remain uncluttered and clear for full compliance.

Additionally, pre-cut floor marking kits are ideal for marking emergency exits, first aid kits, electrical panels, and fire extinguishers—areas that must remain unobstructed or risk hefty fines. They’re backed with the same pressure-sensitive adhesive as our Superior Mark™ Tape, so they stick easily, hold up against traffic, cleaning chemicals, and machinery, and remove without leaving behind gummy residue—no scraping necessary.

Pair graphics and text for clear visual instructions, convey important information, or create directional cues for easy navigation.
