Construction Safety Problems & SONCO Solutions

Work zone safety has many dimensions, and SONCO’s construction safety equipment solves many of the most common job-site safety problems. Common hazards and SONCO solutions include:

The Problem: Unstable Temporary Fencing

Buffeted by high winds and exposed to storms, crowds, trucks and heavy equipment, construction fences take a beating. Set fence panels up on slopes or unlevel ground and your perimeter stability is at risk. Add bulky concrete blocks or sandbags as temp fence ballast, and you have a mess on your hands.

SONCO’s Solution: New Age Fence Stands & Braces

SONCO’s line of temp fence bases is called “new age” for a reason. They are revolutionary in their design and application! Taking the place of concrete blocks and sandbags, these bases provide comparable weight with better stability, easier deployment and longer lifespan.

Missing Compliance Signage

Safety signage effectively communicates warnings to employees and passersby. Popular sign messages include:

  • Instruction about personal safety equipment
  • Details about safety best practices
  • Information about area hazards

Messages detailed on several small signs are easily lost, damaged or covered up, and missing or improperly displayed signs could leave you open to citations, fines or worse.

SONCO’s Solution: Custom-Printed Safety Screens

Combine safety messaging in one easy-to-read sign and avoid non-compliance. SONCO’s OSHA safety screens include all required messages and get rid of the need for a battery of individual fence signs. Consult with our in-house designers to print a customized screen with your company policies and logo. Post safety screens on temp fence panels at work-zone entrances to ensure workers and guests follow designated practices.

Tripping Hazards

Foot traffic and vehicles often share the same entry points and pathways at a construction site. In such crowded areas, a temp fence stand or strut base creates an unseen tripping hazard.

SONCO’s Solution: High Visibility & Low-Profile Fence Bases

New-age bases serve double duty in your temp fence line-up. The heavier weight or larger profile of our OxBlock and BigFoot bases stabilizes your perimeter fence. The bright safety orange and yellow striping catches the eye of passing foot traffic to minimize tripping and improve construction safety. Molded from OSHA orange polyethylene, OxStands feature a low-profile base that is seen in all conditions.
