It is time for site signage…

Recommended Posts

Reached the stage of needing to buy my site signage. What signs do I need? 

 

Anybody got any lying about that they want rid of?

As a Domestic Client, (CDM 2015) none, I think. 

 

But simple caution says, First Aid and First Aid related stuff : the standard Get the Hell Orf My Land You Oik.  I also signposted where the safety gear (harnesses, bump hats, gloves, eye protection and shackles)  was kept. Just in case anyone decided to claim that I never told anyone about the gear available on site. I also clealy marked any live wires (extensions)

 

I  also made up an H+S briefing notice (specific to the site)  laminated it and pinned it to the site ' office ' (a board screwed to the site stillage racks, and covered with clear plastic to keep the rain off)

 

The most useful sign was for site parking. A couple of delivery drivers commented that they thought it was helpful - our lane is narrow.

I didn't put anything up unless I had deep holes in the front and then I hung rope around it with a laminated piece of A4 as the sign.

Thanks @PeterW. That worked well. I bought 8x laminating pouches for £1 as an experiment and they come up a treat using an iron. Will be stapling them to the gate to my plot tomorrow.

 

Three so far:

 

1) The house number (as my gate looks like a generic garden gate rather than a building site).

2) A sign saying "For site deliveries please call…" with my phone number.

3) And a generic site safety one like this…

before you laminate, make a slightly larger hole for hanging than you need, so the laminate seals on itself. Otherwise water will get to the paper through a hole you make afterwards ;)
