Streamlining Industrial Operations

After struggling for a long time at work, I realized that there had to be something else I could do to make my life a little better. I began doing everything I could to improve workflow while preventing injury, and a friend of mine told me about how to use machinery in a more efficient way. I talked with them about how to make some changes, and it was really neat to see how much more efficient the system could run. I wanted to use this website as a launching point for creating a brighter, more interesting workflow in your place of business.

Improve Parking Lot Safety For Your Preschool


Safety is essential for a preschool, and not just when it comes to the inside of the building. You should take steps to keep parents and students safe, even when it comes to the bathrooms and exterior areas of the building. Learn about some of the great additions you can make now to keep everyone safer:


Bollards are an excellent tool for increasing safety within a parking lot. Bollards are essential for a number of reasons, but most importantly because they create a barrier. 

For example, if you wanted to install the bollards around the sidewalk that leads to the area where the children wait outside to be picked up, in the event of an out-of-control vehicle the bollard would provide protection for the children. Bollards are available in a variety of different material options, but stainless steel bollards offer a clean look, and they tend to last for a considerable length of time. 


Designate zones within the parking lot. For example, you can have an area for parking and then another area for parents that are dropping off or picking up their children. If you have an attendant outside with whom parents can drop off their children, establishing zones is very important. 

The zones help establish a flow of traffic so that cars aren't going in every direction around the lot. The more order within the lot, the better for everyone involved. If you choose to install automatic bollards, you can move them up and down as necessary if you want to block off certain parts of the lot at certain times. 

One-Way Paths

A parking lot is not the same as the street, but you should bring the same level of order to your parking lot. One of the best things you can do to improve safety is to establish one-way traffic around your parking lot. Similar to zones, making one-way paths brings a level of order to the parking lot that allows you to better predict the flow of traffic, which helps improve safety.

To create the one-way paths, make sure you have signage in place. You can also paint markers on the road to let drivers know in which direction they should travel.

The above are just some of the steps you can take to improve safety within your parking lot. Make sure you implement these and other helpful tips to enhance safety for your facility.
