Signs, Signals and Barricades for Construction

    Signs, Signals and Barricades for Construction

    With vehicles, heavy machinery, other equipment, and numerous workers, unmarked construction site hazards pose significant danger. The ClickSafety Signs, Signals and Barricades course helps keep your team safe with a review of OSHA standards for construction worksite signage and barriers.

    OSHA mandates that all signs, signals, and barricades conform to Part VI of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Previously governed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the MUTCD includes best practices for using construction work zone traffic signs. Additionally, the Department of Transportation‘s (DOT’s) guidelines require all construction operations to adhere to these standards when working on federally funded projects.

    NOTICE: All course participants are encouraged to review principal references, specifically, Subpart G of 29 CFR 1926.
