OSHA Regulated Construction Safety Signs

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has some clear regulations when it comes to construction signage. Construction sites are responsible for any accidents that happen on them, so they need clear, color-coded warning signs to alert those walking on or near the site to potential hazards. Red signs are “do not” signs. Signs with a yellow background are cautionary, and blue signs show safety requirements. Green signs provide information.

The types of construction safety signage you may need include:

  • “Watch Your Step”
  • “Hard Hat Area”
  • “Danger: Demolition in Progress”
  • “Danger: Do Not Enter”

There are many other possible construction safety signs, of course, but what is critical is that these signs are easy to read and understand. If they are not, people could be injured, and the mere fact that you had a sign out will not protect you from liability. You need signs printed by a company you can trust to make them correctly.

On-The-Job Branded Signs & Fence Wrapping

Construction fence wrapping is probably the best way to advertise for your construction company. The fence around your site serves the important purpose of protecting the site and the people who walk by it, but it is often a huge unused marketing opportunity. It’s time to take advantage of it.

That kind of street-facing advertising space is incredibly valuable, and it's all yours. Use it! Get the name of your company, a contact phone number and/or address, and any other useful information plastered across that fence in big, beautiful, clear letters in an eye-catching design. Or, use the fence wraps to show a rendering of the new development or finished project that will soon occupy the space. This way, anyone walking by who needs construction work done will know exactly who to call or what will be coming soon. If you're unable to utilize custom fence wrapping, the least you can do is post branded signs with your business information. High-quality signs displaying your construction company's information help create brand recognition in passersby.
