The reason for the variety of construction signs is that there is a variety of hazards and risks that accompany both construction workers and passersby of construction sites. You may be familiar with several of these common signs:
It is required by federal law that all construction companies post signs at their work site alerting and informing people of the dangerous hazards that surround the area. Not doing so puts their employees and the public at grave risk of injury. Companies and sites that do not comply could be charged with thousands of dollars in fines and may even have their operations shut down or licenses suspended.
Hazard and safety signs at construction sites are regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Managers and companies of construction sites who fail OSHA inspection and standards are reprimanded. OSHA dictates where and when appropriate signage is to be used, what it should look like, and what information it should include.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury or death due to accident caused by missing or improperly displayed construction safety signs, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries.
