Use Aluminum Signs

by Steve Riggs

Damaged Plastic RF Safety Sign

Here's an example of why it's better to use signs constructed from aluminum instead of plastic. The picture shows a plastic RF Safety Notice sign that is mounted on a gate to a wireless facility. It appears someone bumped the gate with their vehicle and cracked the sign. An RF Safety Notice Sign mounted to this gate would not crack like this as our signs are made from .040 gauge aluminum. If not replaced, the halves of the broken plastic sign will eventually break off in the wind, leaving the site without critical safety signage.

New post recommends that RF signs be used as part of a comprehensive occupational safety program, including:  hazard communications signage, a written hazard management policy, training, record-keeping, surveys and calculations and the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) as needed.
