It goes without saying that building and construction signs are essential for safety purposes and to ensure compliance with legislation and industry imposed regulations. Without these signs you could be in serious violation and can be faced with health and safety risks, hefty fines, litigation or even having operations shut down. You might have heard it time and again that you should approach an accredited signage and installation company to handle all of your building and construction signs, but why is this? Also, what sort of accreditations should you be looking for in a supplier and what does each mean/ensure? Construction and building sites need to be concerned by many risk factors that signage presents. Are the signs correctly displayed and clearly visible? Are the correct fall arrest systems in place? And so on.
First and foremost, accredited signage companies will be familiar with the laws, legislation and regulations/standards in place, when it comes to safety and warning signage. The company will be able to provide you with standard signage and also advise you on your options, if you need to have signage custom made and installed.
