Safety Arches from

Peak VM

Have you ever come across the quote……?

“Safe Work is ‘the gate’ to all work. Let us pass through this gate.” Eiji Toyoda

Words nearly as old as the Toyota Production System itself, first coined in a 1957 request to all employees by the then Senior Managing Director (Eiji Toyoda). This quote underscores the importance Safety plays in the foundations of an efficient and Lean business Operation.

So, how can we create a safe gate to all work?

Peak VM Health & Safety Archways make the ultimate highly conspicious, visual safety statement, that cannot be ignored. To see the options for Safety Archways click here: Safety Archway Options

Along with creating the ‘Impossible to Ignore Safety Visual’ the Safety Archways also provide a platform to communicate other key Safety information, vital in business:

  • Promote Safety Culture: A very visible commitment to safety at the entrance sets the tone for the entire facility. It demonstrates that safety is a priority for the organisation, encouraging a culture of responsibility and awareness among employees. It places responsibility to the individuals entering the areas of higher risk to act safely and responsibly to ensure the welfare of themselves and others.
  • Awareness & Reminders: Safety Archway signs act as constant reminders of potential hazards and safety protocols specific to the site. This helps create a safety-conscious culture among individuals entering the factory, reducing the likelihood of near-misses, accidents and injuries.
  • Legal Compliance: Displaying safety signs is often a legal requirement. Regulatory bodies and authorities such as the HSE, may require certain safety standards and the display of specific information in workplaces to ensure the well-being of workers and visitors. Compliance with these regulations helps avoid legal issues and penalties. Safety Archways provide the structure and visual platform for these standards and information to be displayed.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Requirements: Information about the necessary personal protective equipment (such as hard hats, safety glasses, ear protection, etc.) can be clearly displayed on entry to higher risk areas using Safety Archways. This helps ensure that individuals entering the factory are aware of and adhere to the required safety gear, ultimately protecting themselves from harm.
  • Emergency Information: In the event of an emergency, having clear and visible safety information displayed at the entrance, using a Safety Arch can guide people on evacuation procedures, assembly points, and other critical information. This aids in a quick and organised response during emergencies.
