Critical Safety Signs
Safety signs function to promote the safety and health of all individuals present on a construction site. They benefit every type of job site, including ground-up build projects, refurbishments, and demolitions. Signs come in a variety of types, such as access, hazard, prohibition, and vehicle signs.
In addition, these signs become of great help at outdoor events where temporary signs are needed to restrict the use of tobacco products, to oversee and control access for vehicles and pedestrians, and to supply directions to various amenities. This includes fire exits, fire assembly areas, and first aid facilities, among others.
Other signage options include signs to designate fire exits, signs to forbid smoking and first aid signs that may be installed permanently in a structure or outdoor area. All signs are ISO 7010 compliant, thus businesses can buy with confidence knowing they remain in compliance with all current standards regarding these types of signs.
A construction site remains hazardous simply due to the work being conducted there. Scaffolds may need to be built and used, utility connections might not be completed, heavy machines are constantly on the go, and construction is ongoing. All pose a risk to every person present on the site, thus safety signs are needed to minimise the risks.
Construction signs are placed on the site to provide information to workers and visitors, to ensure health and safety practices are implemented and adhered to, and to ensure the site moves smoothly at all times. The signs found on a construction site vary by the work being carried out and may include hazard, information, safety, smoking, safety clothing (PPE), and fire signs.
The signs may be found at the site entrance and at various other locations across the site to ensure all visitors and workers are informed as to the risks present on the site and how to reduce the risk of a work-related incident.
