Controlled access in working areas

On a busy construction site with multiple working areas, access needs to be strictly controlled. Clear identification of working areas is essential to keep everyone safe and prevent accidents caused by people entering restricted areas unauthorised.

See the example below for how one site addressed this:

  • Enacted colour coding of doors in the large internal welfare/administrative areas to easily identify access to safe and working areas.

This simple and cost-effective system ensures everyone on site is aware when they are entering a working area. This should minimise the risk of accident caused by people being unprepared for working on a live site.
