I am bidding on a small commercial job for the 1st time. I do have some questions in regards to construction signs. What signs do I need, and where should I be placing them?
The work is for a day care, in the basement of a church. I use 1 door at the back, coming and going. There is one door for employees and parents pick ups and drop offs. And there is also the Church entrance upstairs, but away from the construction. I will be working in the far end of the church, in 1 of 4 classes.
What do I need for signs, and where should I be posting them?
Thank you for your time.
You should rope off any areas that may be accessible by others to keep your liability down. Assume you have contractors insurance with public liability? Otherwise YOU, personally, could be on the meat hook if any accidents happen.
Best to contact your local city and ask them for guidance.
Ensure you have first aid, fire extinguisher and emergency contact numbers handy.
Keep your "site" signs in areas that are visible to public and if you are working overhead of anybody, rope off those areas completely. Post your info and the building permit at the main entrance with your number in case of an emergency.
In a normal situation I would suggest caution tape as the standard; however when I was in a similar situation in a seniors centre I actually was able to use a piece of temporary construction fencing. I just had to make sure I was not eliminating a secondary means of egress.
In addition to that I used the standard signs for hard hat, eye protection, etc as necessary. I don't normally put in a secondary FA kit (I guess I could), my FA kit and fire extinguisher are in my truck.
