Industrial facilities come under regulation for worker safety, cleanliness & hygiene, fire protection and so on. Paint plays a part in this. Painted surfaces must be kept up with rust scraped and metal repainted. Floors need safety coatings to make them slip-proof. Floors also need safety markings to note where workers are to walk and to outline the unsafe areas around machines with moving parts. Just like in the office, a well-maintained factory tends to encourage more ‘safe practices’ and the workers will treat well-maintained equipment with more care and respect. Painting your factory or warehouse area can be a big step in reducing loss and increasing profits.
Factory and Warehouse Painting
But factories and warehouses also present unique challenges for our painters on the job. Trucks are coming and going and forklifts are whizzing around with 2000 lb loads. Safety and cooperation are key. Often we schedule industrial painting for shut-down periods or slow shifts or whatever we can to make it easier.
Using a boom lift rather than ladders, we can cut labour by up to 40%. This means we can do the job at a lower price, and still make money while giving an excellent job with top-of-the-line paint.
The same things that make us good housepainters make us safe and effective on the factory floor. Saving a few dollars to hire cheap painters that wind up in a WCB claim or lawsuit? Well, that doesn’t seem like much of a saving in the end.
