Safety retractable belt barrier stanchions protect a designated area or hazardous zone by blocking access with high visibility yellow and orange posts. They are frequently used in risky conditions such as heavy construction zones, restricting access in an industrial facility or at ports and cargo facilities.
The majority of our safety crowd control retractable belt models are available with custom bright color belts printed with warning signs and messages. Stanchions are generally classified as safety stanchions after they meet certain conditions like the ones mentioned above. Safety stanchions meet all of OSHA’s safety requirements and also assist with hazard control in accordance with official safety plans.
ANSI and OSHA, as well as other prestigious industry organizations that set workplace safety standards, carefully chose the colors of safety stanchion barriers.
The color of your safety stanchion belt matters!
Yellow is the universal color for potential injury. According to ANSI and OSHA, yellow should be identified as the universal warning of potential injury. This is why we carry a large variety of yellow-colored stanchion posts and belts.
ORANGE is the universal color for conditions where the potential risk of injury is even higher. If yellow stands for risk of injury, then orange signals risk of serious injury or even death.
RED stanchions are advised to be used to alert about fire and associated hazards. For example, they’re commonly used near fire extinguishers or fire alarms, near inflammable materials as well as near emergency switches and levers.
Our selection of stanchion barriers includes all the above colors as well as the classic white and black stanchions for crowd control situations that aren’t so risky that you need bright-colored stanchions like yellow, orange or red stanchions.
If your workplace requires safety stanchions, then it’s best to get them sooner rather than later. They’re durable, portable, versatile and last for a very long time.
