Where to Place Hazard Signs

Even outside of the construction industry, people make use of safety-related signs on a daily basis. From “do not enter” and “stop” signs on the road to “keep out” signs on the walk-in freezers at your local supermarket, a visual notification of danger can be a great way to keep citizens safe. When it comes to construction equipment and general contractor tools, though safety signs might not be just an ethical consideration—they could be a legal one, too.

Eye and Face Safety: The Basics

Our eyes and face are more than just the first thing other people notice about us. For construction workers, this part of their bodies is oftentimes crucial to do good work. From assessing visual construction components to hearing and smelling the signs of danger, your employees probably use their eyes, noses, and ears constantly to do their jobs right.
