Worker safety is always a top priority on any job site. No matter the experience of the people on the job or the thorough training provided, there is still a risk of injury. Here at Mesh Direct, we are passionate about increasing worker safety. That’s why it is paramount to do everything you can to minimise the risk of an accident and maximise the knowledge on-site. Here are three simple ways you can work to make your job site even safer.

Clear Signage

If your workers have all the information they need, openly available, there’s little risk of an accident. Printing important signage, from warning signs to safe walking directions on corflute signage is critical. Corflute is lightweight and budget-friendly, as well as UV resistant, meaning it’s perfect for construction safety signs that need to be outdoors or indoors.

Reduce Clutter

From tools to construction refuse, most job sites are highly efficient when it comes to producing clutter. While you want to make sure you’re managing all elements of the task at hand, it’s important to stay on top of the site’s condition. If clutter gets out of control, it can block emergency exits, create obstacles and instigate accidents. Simple signage reminding people to pick up after their tools, and efficient management of worksite refuse will significantly reduce the chance of a clutter related mishap.

Flame Retardant Mesh

Australia’s temperamental climate means that fire is always a risk to your construction site. Choosing a flame retardant banner mesh for your scaffolding will significantly ensure your worksite remains safe. Premium banner mesh, unlike shade cloth, is a durable and versatile substrate making it more resilient. It also contains a GSM of 270 and a thread count of 12 per inch, meaning your custom banner printing will look as clear and crisp as you expect.
