If you work in the construction industry, chances are your employer has stressed the importance of safety at one point or another. Working in construction can expose you to a wide variety of risks, including falls, equipment accidents and falling debris, among other things, and it’s important that you follow safety rules and regulations to protect yourself and the people you work with.

One way that your employer should provide information about potential hazards is by posting signs that indicate which dangers to be aware of. These signs may also provide helpful information about how you should respond if someone you are working with is injured.

An effective safety sign usually incorporates informative graphics with a concise description of the hazard and how you can stay safe around it. Signs can also be used to warn the general public of the importance of staying away from the construction site so they can avoid unnecessary risk of injury. If you see people behaving in ways that are contrary to what is encouraged on the safety signs, you can kindly reference the sign and remind them of its importance.
