According to the National Safety Council*, a worker is injured on the job every 7 seconds – adding up to 4,500,000 preventable workplace injuries a year! Among the top five industries with the largest number of workplace injuries are manufacturing and construction. In these and other industries, high visibility of dangerous areas and hazardous materials on the jobsite is a major priority. That’s why Shurtape Technologies, a leading manufacturer of pressure-sensitive tapes, offers a variety of safety, marking and caution tapes that deliver long-lasting performance in color-coding and hazard marking applications.
