What is a Barricading and Signage Procedure?
A signage and barricading procedure is a set of documented instructions that detail how to safely install, maintain signage and barricading. Typically, this may involve traffic control devices on roadways and other workflow zones.
The procedure is designed to inform and protect workers, pedestrians, plant and equipment while minimizing disruptions.
What is Barricade?
A barricade is a physical barrier erected to prevent personnel from being exposed to hazards. It can be solid, hard or soft as described below.
Hard barricading is a barricade constructed of tubes or other materials (metal, timber) that are not flexible.
Soft barricading is a barricade constructed of plastic tape, chain, etc, suspended from stands or fixed to structures.
Solid barricading is a barricade constructed of material and erected so that it cannot be readily crossed (i.e. webbing or meshed plastic). For example a fence, temporary fence panels or water barriers.
Selection of Safety Signs
The selection of safety signs that are required for a workplace should be determined through risk assessment and an auditing process.
In a ‘typical workplace’ the following types of areas will generally require signage:
- Hazardous chemicals and dangerous goods storage areas.
- Pedestrian and traffic management.
- Construction and maintenance work areas (at entry and onsite).
- Areas where specific PPE is required.
- Emergency exits.
- Emergency equipment within buildings and structures.
- Electrical and mechanical hazardous areas.
- Confined spaces.
- Hazardous area zones.
- Toxic management zones.
- Utility services (e.g. electrical, gas, water, etc).
Hazard information boards and/or information tags (attached to the barrier in predominant positions) are a useful method of advising persons about the hazards associated with barricaded areas.
Note: The signage for a hazardous area should:
- Identify the nature of the hazardous area (e.g. gas or dust hazardous area), and
- Specify requirements and precautions whilst in the hazardous area (e.g. signage is to identify equipment that is not permitted in the hazardous area).
