Construction Signs for Site Safety and Hazard Awareness

Construction sites are one of the most hazardous places to work due to the constantly changing environment, the temporary nature of many structures, and the heavy machinery used. The construction site will be littered with hazards that could cause harm to workers if left unmarked. Site safety signs can help to reduce dangerous situations by drawing attention to the hazard.

  • Heavy plant
  • Site access
  • Vehicle access
  • Warning specific
  • Danger specific
  • Custom site/use specific can be designed for your needs

The Legal Obligations of Construction Companies to Display Appropriate Signage

It is a legal requirement for risk assessments to be regularly undertaken on construction sites and any identified health and safety risks should be dealt with appropriately. Options for minimising the risk should be explored, for example, if there is a hole in the ground it can be covered up or fenced off. If the risk cannot be avoided or minimised in any way then it must be indicated to workers using a construction sign. It is an employer’s responsibility to maintain the construction signs, add and remove signs as the site develops and hazards change, and also to explain unfamiliar site safety signs to employees so they are informed of the hazard and how to react to it.

In order to keep your site safe and compliant with the Health & Safety Law Act 1974, construction site safety signs need to be placed in highly visible areas, and advise people of the correct behaviour to deal with the hazard and minimise the health risk. Our site safety signs cover most types of construction site hazard including danger and warning signs, no access, signs relating to vehicles and directional signs. If you can’t find what you’re looking for or you have a specialised, site-specific hazard that needs highlighting then don’t hesitate to contact us and we can create a bespoke construction sign for you.
