Uses of Caution, Construction and Danger Tape...
Caution tape, also known as barrio or barricade tape, is typically used where health and safety risks are not quickly known or obvious to anyone approaching a dangerous area. It is used along with warning signs describing the danger and any preventative compulsory measures required. This tape is intended to be an impediment, both physically and visually, to alert and to prohibit the public from entering the hazardous area. There are two main types of caution tape used in construction. The yellow caution tape communicates that the area has a somewhat reduced safety and health risk. In other words, it says you may cross the barrio but continue on with discretion. The red danger tape indicated a much higher degree of hazard. Like a red light says stop, the red danger tape says that you are not permitted to cross the barrier without approval by the area’s administrator. We at SafetyGear Online have both kinds for whatever job you need to protect.
When you first think of caution tape, you may be tempted to think about how you see police mark off crime scenes on television shows. This is not the only use for yellow caution tape. Caution tape was designed to help alert people when dangerous conditions lie ahead. Whether you need to wear a hard hat, there are moving vehicles, power tools in use, or other potentially hazardous situations. The reusable caution tape here at SafetyGearOnline.com is made from polyethylene plastic that is heavy duty and weather resistant.
Sometimes caution tape can also be convenient for situations that aren't strictly for large construction zones. Take this scenario for example: Let's say you're working with concrete and you've just spent the day pouring a few pads for a sidewalk. If you just leave for the day, people walking down the sidewalk can accidentally step in the wet cement. This can not only ruin a hard day of work, but also cause potential minor injuries. The last thing you want is for negative attention to be drawn to your company because you didn't follow safety procedures. By using a role of construction warning tape to clearly mark an area of wet concrete, you can prevent many types of mishaps from occurring so that pedestrians stay safe.
