Where mechanical handling equipment is used, OSHA requires that sufficient safe clearances be allowed for aisles, at loading docks, through doorways and wherever turns or passage must be made. These aisles and passageways must be kept clear and in good repairs, with no obstruction across or in aisles that could create a hazard (29 CFR 1910.22 (b)(1)).

Permanent aisles and passageways must be "appropriately marked" as indicated at 29 CFR 1910.22(b)(2). Many safety managers have interpreted this to mean that aisles and passageways must be marked by painted floor lines.

OSHA issued a directive (#100-60) indicating that painted lines are the most feasible method of marking, where practical, since they may last several years without maintenance or repainting, however other appropriate methods such as marking pillars, powder stripping, flags, traffic cones or barrels are acceptable, when the employees are properly trained.
