Does anyone use mirrors in their warehouse for safety purposes?

Are there any options for plastic ones or ones with shatterproof coating that have good visibility?

We are having trouble with our forklift traffic, and are looking at ways to help employees that are walking be safer in the area.

We are looking at re-doing the layout of the warehouse to provide walking paths, but it is a really tight space. 

 

Thanks!

Our customer auditor suggested using mirrors to allow employees to check whether their hairnets are adjusted properly, which I agree is a good idea. Glenn, the site you linked to has only convex mirrors. Does anyone know a place that sells unbreakable flat mirrors for the purpose I mentioned? Thanks!

Prison supply store?  :shades:  A highly polished stainless steel "mirror" would do the job.

Thanks Marshall. I'm actually looking into highly polished chrome-plated mirrors at the moment. They are generally used for public venues, but they would fit the bill for what I'm looking for.

Absolutely. It's basically a reflective inspection mirror on a larger scale.
