Keep Everyone Safe With Construction Company Yard Signs

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), being a construction worker is among the most dangerous jobs with a fatality rate of 43.3 per 100,000 workers. It’s not just the environment that workers have to be wary of. Even their regular tasks make them more prone to accidents, such as operating heavy machinery and working at great heights.

Putting up safety signs is one way to keep workers safe from harm. There are usually five different types of construction signs in every jobsite:

  1. 1. Danger Signs – These inform the worker that there are immediate hazards within the vicinity.
  2. 2. Caution Signs – These are used to warn staff against potential hazards and unsafe practices.
  3. 3. Safety Instruction Signs – These contain instructions and reminders to keep the workplace free from accidents and mishaps.
  4. 4. Directional Signs – These are used to help employees navigate the facility.
  5. 5. Exit Signs – These indicate the way out for people in the building and the point of entry for first responders in case of emergencies that require immediate evacuation.

Sometimes, the management will also display traffic signs to inform drivers and commuters that they are approaching a hazardous location.

OSHA rolled out a standard for construction signs to ensure that all signs are uniform and easy to understand, regardless of who is seeing them. All construction and printing companies should observe these guidelines, which cover colors, signal words, font style and size, and even sign placement.
