The purpose of vehicle and site navigation signs is to communicate traffic and navigation procedures on construction sites. You want to ensure everyone - from workers to visitors to the public - is as safe as possible, and these signs will help you achieve that goal.

Construction Site Traffic Control

It's a well-known fact that construction sites tend to be dangerous, which is why it's important to reduce the risk of potential accidents, including those posed by vehicles. Vehicle and site navigation signs are an effective way of doing this, especially as drivers are used to responding to traffic signs, and therefore will respond to similar on-site signs.

Such signs are very practical, since construction sites can be chaotic, confusing places and can be hard for drivers - especially visiting drivers - to navigate, which can lead to them getting lost or even, at busier times, causing traffic jams. However, if you clearly mark the points of interest, such as the nearest way to the reception, these issues are far less likely to arise.

By installing vehicle and site navigation signs, you communicate with drivers in advance, giving them the time to process instructions and incorporate them into their driving and navigating. For example, you may decide to put up a caution 5 site speed limit sign, caution speed ramps sign or reception car park navigation sign.

Sometimes, something unpredictable will happen, it is important to be prepared for such occurrences, especially if they impact work flow on your site. Before dealing with these situations, you can set up one of our signs to make sure drivers miss obstacles entirely, a no entry sign or diversion sign would be perfect to use on such occasions. It is also ideal to have a supply of traffic cones handy in the event of accidents to help cordon off the area, and make it clear to drivers the space that they should avoid.

Vehicle and site navigation signs can also be used to warn drivers of pedestrians and turning lorries, instruct them to sound their horn and drive slowly, notify them of exits, entrances and site offices and much more.

These types of signs have a lot in common with typical construction site information signs, alerting drivers any dangers they may come across while on-site. You can complement them with construction site parking signs that let drivers know where they can safely leave their vehicles and where doing so is strictly forbidden.

You will want to place these signs strategically, so that any confusion is eliminated. Drivers should be able to see vehicle and site navigation signs from afar to allow them ample thinking time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What traffic signs do I need for a construction site?

The types and quantity of traffic and vehicle signs needed to organise a construction or general worksite, or car park, will be site specific. Your site plan will help you to identify your total signage requirement, which may include road work signs UK, construction site entrance signs and direction signs (see the full list of categories in the guide above).

How do I keep pedestrians safe around construction sites?

Ensuring safe passage for pedestrians through a construction site is crucial due to the presence of heavy vehicles being controlled by drivers who may be concentrating on construction work, or who may have pedestrian blind spots. Our range includes directional signage for pedestrians to indicate safe routes and guide them to landmarks such as the reception or site office.

Where should construction site traffic signs be placed?

The positioning of construction site traffic signs and construction road signs should conform with HSE guidelines, which can be found in its Safety Signs and Signals publication. It is important to be aware of the correct placement for signs for both maximum visibility and to allow sufficient distance for drivers and pedestrians to note and react to any potential hazards ahead.

Whether you are using road work ahead signs, construction site entrance or please drive slowly signs, the advice is the same: always ensure that they are securely affixed and clearly visible to visitors approaching, whether on foot or in vehicles. Once installed, signs should be regularly checked for any visibility issues, which may be caused by vandalism, grime, or general wear and tear in external locations.
