Barricades are an Important Component of Work Area Safety

A barricade warns of a boundary not to be crossed. If there is a potential hazard, signs must be visible at all times and when necessary, appropriate barricades must be in place. Do you know what can safely be used as a barricade if used properly?

Barricade means an obstruction to deter the passage of persons or vehicles. Barricades should be inspected daily (or more often) to ensure they are still in place and working as intended.

A barricade outlines or blocks a dangerous area and warns of a boundary not to be crossed to ensure employee and public safety. It is an obstruction to deter the passage of persons or vehicles.

Tapes, screens, cones, rope, wire, chains or signs can be barricades if set up properly.
