Remember that your construction site employs seasoned professionals as well as newcomers to the various trades. For those who have never been on a construction site before, having the right signs in place can make the difference between avoiding accidents and holding up the work because of an emergency. Examples include caution signs for hardhat areas and overhead work as well as markers that label the eyewash station and first aid kit location.
Heavy equipment parking signs, instructions for use of various tools and the warning that the site is accessible only to authorized personnel also fall into this category. Site operators prefer aluminum signs with imprinted vinyl overlays because of the durability that this material brings to the table. Opt for yellow backgrounds with black lettering and symbols. Digitally printed banners, post and panel signage as well as decals fulfill this function, too.
As the construction nears completion, property owners and investors may make more frequent visits. Building inspectors also visit the site. Visitor signage must include clear parking area instructions, wayfinding markers that point the way across the site to the management office and ADA signage that fulfill the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Once again, aluminum is a great material to work with for a broad range of uses. Clad with imprinted vinyl that alternatively displays the parking symbol, the handicap parking sign and the arrows that lead to the office are some suggestions.
