Construction sites are always potentially a major hazard. Proper demarcation protects lives - of road users, pedestrians and construction workers alike. We are confronted with construction sites in almost all areas of our daily lives, and transport is no exception. Statistics show that the three most populous federal states in Germany - North-Rhine-Westfalia, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria - are home to over 50% of all cars registered in the country (see analysis of the federal department of transport (Kraftfahrtbundesamt) 2013). This number of potential road users puts a considerable strain on all types of roads. As a result, new construction projects, road improvements, and repair work are essential in order to guarantee that traffic continues to flow smoothly.
During contruction work, it is crucial that sites are made safe so that traffic can flow unhindered while work goes on, and every possible kind of accident is avoided. The safety of both the workmen on site and the road users passing through is top priority. If roadworks are sensibly marked off, in line with the relevant regulations, road users will be alerted in good time and given proper guidance. The construction work should be clearly sectioned off, so that traffic can still flow in spite of the roadworks.
The safe enclosure of the construction site can save lives and relieve traffic congestion. If you want to find out how to make a construction site safe, what details you should pay attention to and what guidelines you need to follow, we can recommend our training programme on roadworks safety in line with RSA guidelines ('RSA-Sicherung von Arbeitsstellen and Strassen'). For schedules please consult our Bremicker training course schedules (Schulungskalender).
Please get in touch if you have any questions about our equipment for making safe, alerting to and enclosing construction sites. Our specially trained roadworks safety team will be happy to advise you.
