Six Safety Essentials for Billboard Installers Working at Height

Martin Supply knows that when you are installing a billboard at height, it is crucial to ensure that the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn to keep installers safe.

Some of the key PPE that should be worn includes:

Hard HatA hard hat is essential for protecting the head from falling debris and potential impact from tools or equipment.
Safety HarnessA safety harness is worn to prevent falls from height. It is an essential piece of equipment for any installer who is working at height.
GlovesGloves are worn to protect the hands from cuts, scrapes, and other injuries. They also help to improve grip and reduce the risk of slipping.
Eye ProtectionEye protection, such as safety goggles or glasses, is worn to protect the eyes from dust, debris, and other potential hazards.
High-Visibility ClothingHigh-visibility clothing is worn to make the installers more visible to others, especially when working in low-light conditions.
Steel-Toed BootsSteel-toed boots are worn to protect the feet from falling debris and other potential hazards.

It is essential to note that the PPE recommended for the specific job site is subject to change and the employer should follow the standard regulations and guidelines. The PPE used should be suitable for the specific task and the environment that the installer is in. Also, high-viz PPE like vests and jackets or gloves may change by season depending on hot or cold weather conditions.

In addition to wearing the proper PPE, it is also important to ensure that the equipment is properly maintained and inspected before each use to ensure that it is in good working condition. By taking the necessary precautions and following safety guidelines, installers can reduce the risk of injury and ensure a safe and successful installation of a billboard at height.
