When designing car park solutions, health and safety considerations are of paramount importance. For car park users, the deck plays a very important role in safety due to the potential of slips and skid risks posed by water and/or slippery automotive oils lying around. With the increase of vehicles and road users, parking has become a vital part of today’s world. As a result, vehicle owners are looking for safe and secure environments to house their vehicles when they are not with them. In this article, we will explore some key health and safety considerations that should be taken into account when designing multi-storey car parks.
First and foremost, it is important to ensure that the car park is designed to be easily accessible and navigable for all users, including those with mobility impairments. It is also important to ensure that the car park is well-lit and colourful both to improve visibility and to deter crime. This may involve clear marking with bright demarcation lines and signage, to provide a welcoming impression to drivers and help to make the car park a more positive and safer environment.
