High visibility barrier feet

Potential trip hazards for the public should be considered and proactive measures taken, to reduce any risks.

The importance of safety outside the site is of paramount importance, although additional consideration should be given to sight impaired and disabled members of the public.

Below is an example of how sites have introduced high visibility barriers to avoid trip hazards:

  • The works necessitated extensive deployment of plastic road barriers and following a meeting with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), the site purchased alternative barrier feet;
  • The barrier feet were high visibility yellow, with one side of each foot designed as low profile/flat, to mitigate trip hazards for people with impaired sight and also those with no sight difficulties.
