In a search to find new signs for a big job coming up, and the blasting industry in gen Being on a back page for safety signs

Thought it be nice for everyone through in what they do got signs

I'm thinking of having some custom made for myself

One that says
Warning
Eye, Ear & Respirator needed
Sandblasting in progress

Or something like that
Also thinking of sings for the compressor that say

Caution
No ideal vehicle's with in 50 feet


On this job I have to buy blank signs and fill in
But want to get some made for future use

Anyone with input

Looks good,

I had vinyl banners made 8' wide by 3' high for around $38.00 each if you want info on where I got them let me know.

I attach the banners to tall safety cones and have a cheap barricade that looks pro.

Looks good, not sure the average Joe knows what PPE is, you may have to spell it out for them on the next ones.

You may run out of room but say: respirator, hard hat, eye protection, ear protection, steel toe boots, hand held non explosive safety light and space suit required to enter area.

And then some idiot wearing Bermuda shorts, t-shirt and sandals will pull the do not cross tape over his head walk up behind you poke you in the side and ask "wacha doin?"

Make the DO NOT ENTER bigger.

And center it right under DANGER.

Sandblasting in Progress.

Authorized Personnel Only (but no one ever pays attention to this - but cya)

PPE, Resperator,....Required. (same here, but maybe safety icons for those that can't/won't read. Doesn't have to be big, just there. - again cya)

If they ignored the top three lines, anything below that is CYA.

Just my .02¢
