Pedestrian Signs

How do you keep pedestrians and traffic separate on your site?

There are a number of ways, such as with a pedestrian sign, to keep pedestrians and traffic separate on a site. Some common methods include:

  • Physical barriers: Physical barriers, such as fences, walls, and bollards, can be used to create a physical separation between pedestrians and traffic. This is the most effective way to keep pedestrians safe, but it can also be the most expensive and disruptive to implement.
  • Signage and markings: Signage and markings can be used to warn pedestrians and drivers of the potential hazards and to direct them to the safest routes. Pedestrian zone signs are a relatively inexpensive and easy way to improve safety, but it is important to make sure that the signs and markings are clear, visible, and well-maintained.
  • Raised walkways: Raised walkways can be used to provide a safe crossing point for pedestrians. These walkways are typically raised above the level of the road, which forces drivers to slow down and stop.
  • Traffic calming measures: Traffic calming measures, such as speed bumps and chicanes, can be used to slow down traffic and make it safer for pedestrians.

The best way to keep pedestrians and traffic separate will vary depending on the specific site and the hazards present. It is important to conduct a risk assessment to identify the hazards and then select the most appropriate safety measures.

Here are some additional tips for keeping pedestrians and traffic separate on a site:

  • Plan the layout of the site carefully: When planning the layout of the site, consider the flow of both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Try to create clear and separate routes for each type of traffic.
  • Make sure that all safety measures are well-maintained: Inspect all safety measures regularly to make sure that they are in good condition and that they are effective.
  • Educate workers and visitors on the safety procedures: Make sure that all workers and visitors are aware of the safety procedures in place for keeping pedestrians and traffic separate.

By following these tips, you can help to keep pedestrians safe and reduce the risk of accidents on your site.

Pedestrian Warning Signs should be displayed where ever there is a risk of vehicles nearby pedestrians such as on bulding site and consruction sites. 

Our Pedestrian Walkway Signs are generally used to implement site safety rules on a construction site and ensure that pedestrians stick to the routes advised.
