A physical barrier
There are all sorts of ways you can aid facility employees in staying safe. Many of these possibilities are good in their own right. However, the ideal approach in many instances would be to physically stop them from accessing the hazardous area. We call this practice barrier safety. What we do here is erect physical barriers that stop vehicles and individuals.
Something you need to remember about these barriers though is that they come with their own set of risks. When contemplating any form of this solution, you must go over these risks. Check to see if they are actually present. If they are, then you will have to take the right steps to dispose of them.
One of the most obvious risks is the barriers blocking exits. The last thing you want to do is put a barrier up that makes it difficult to exit the property. This is particularly important for emergency exits. Keep in mind that people need to be able to move quickly and without obstacles if there is an issue like a fire. If you do need to put barriers close to an exit, ensure that everyone can get out easily.
Blocking safety signs
Another risk would be the barriers blocking safety signs. Your barriers cannot block or restrict the visibility of these signs. To give an example, you could be putting a fence up. If you are, see to it that emergency signs on both sides remain visible. You may need to reposition them or put up extra signs.
