Open Excavation Safety Requirements

Posted by in Traffic Knowledge, Safety Signs & Labels, Oilfield Signs on April 09, 2014 . 0 Comments.

If there is a danger of a worker or equipment falling into an excavation, an employer must ensure that workers are made aware of the excavation. Safety awareness is achieved by placing warning signage in the surrounding area, flagging any possible entry points and placing barricades which prevent access to the excavation. Even if your construction site is considered a restricted area, it's possible for ATV's, snowmobiles and pedestrians to enter the job site after hours.

If you're thinking about saving a few bucks by cutting corners, think again! Improper marking of excavations are lawsuits waiting to happen. Consider the size of your project and the financial ramifications of an injury or loss occurring on the job site,not to mention employee down time, additional safety reporting and potential legal expenses. 310-SIGN carries all the necessary safety supplies to ensure your excavation gets the awareness it deserves. Spending a bit upfront is a small fraction of the costs of 'not acting at all'!

Here is a list of everything you'll need to properly mark an open excavation or open pit:

Open excavation signs should be reflective, using fluorescent 3M Diamond Grade sheeting for maximum day-time and night-time visibility.
