Safety in the workplace is an important consideration for companies of all sizes. Here at Safe Options we take workplace safety very seriously and sell a variety of products that can help make your company a better place to work at.

 

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.” - Albert Einstein

 

From line markers to PU foam impact protection, Safe Options has everything you need to increase the level of safety at your company. If you've already looked through our range and have questions for us, read our FAQ below.

 

What are the correct parking bay markings?

To begin with, parking bays are based on a rectangle which can be a minimum of 4500mm x 1800mm and up to a maximum of 6600mm x 2700mm. The corners furthest from the pavement are marked with intersecting lines to create a corner marking of 600mm on each side. The forward facing side of the bay will have a further intersecting 600mm line just behind it. Both this side and the rear facing side will also have 600mm long lines in between the corner and the pavement.

 

What markings are for cycle lanes?

It is mandatory for cycle lanes to be marked with solid white lines. This is for stretches of lane where other vehicles are prohibited for a part of the day at least. Lanes can also be marked with broken white lines for use by other road users if necessary. In these cases, vehicles may be allowed to park in them at certain times.

 

With so many accidents happening on our roads every year, traffic safety is always a concern. Local authorities, emergency services and even private companies when working on or near our roads need to minimise disruption to motorists by keeping traffic flowing in a safe manner.

 

What are road cones filled with?

Road cones are generally not filled with anything. Originally made with concrete, they are today constructed from plastic of a varying thickness. Built in two parts, the cone will usually have a black base and an orange, red or yellow main body, plus a white reflective strip.

 

How can I protect my hose pipe when on the road?

A hose and pipe ramp will protect your hose when it is being used on the road. Whether it is being used for outdoor events or industrial use, this protection ramp is the solution. Moulded in a hard rubber compound, the ramp has a yellow hinged anti-slip cover made of high grade polypropylene. Hoses are threaded through one of three cable channels where they are protected from being damaged. Several models of ramp can even withstand HGV vehicles with an axle weight limit of 5 tonnes.
