What type of signs are needed?
Yard signs – This is a very easy and inexpensive way to display your message. Usually made of coroplast or metal, 18 inches by 24 inches, and are displayed using H stakes. They are easy to put up, take down and store.
Site Sign – These are used for a longer period of time; so, they are very sturdy and well built. Usually 4 feet by 4 feet and are attached to posts that are installed in the ground. They are made of metal or wood and are usually double sided.
These two types of signs are what you need to let passersby, traffic, other local businesses, and other subcontractors on the job know who you are and how to contact you. Install the signs at every job site and your name or brand will be available where everyone sees it. Make it count with these useful tips:
- Use good contrasting colors
- Use a logo that will be remembered
- Provide contact information
- Use the space efficiently
- Make sure your information is legible
- Hire a good graphic designer
Required Signs – Health and Safety Law requires certain types of signage. They come in many different sizes. They are mounted on metal, fully printed, and installed on U Channel posts.
- Mandatory signs
These signs remind employees and visitors of the rules they must follow when entering, or working in specific environments. All mandatory signs are identified by a blue circle and a white picture within.
- Warning signs
These are used to warn of a hazard or a hazardous condition that is not likely to be life-threatening. A yellow background can identify warning signs.
- Danger signs
These signs are used to warn of a hazard or hazardous condition that is likely to be life-threatening. Signs in this category incorporate the word ‘danger’ in white letters on a red oval shape against a black background.
