What are Job Site Signs?

Construction work in progress signs are DCA signs, one of the types of job site signs often required at construction areas by the NJ DCA. They carry certain requirements related to their design, fabrication and use that must be followed to promote high levels of safety. Still, they are able to be personalized to some extent depending on the project.

Options for Construction Job Site Signs in NJ

Work in progress signs, like many construction signs, are designed to notify the public of what is going on and provide safety. There are mandatory WIP signs that contain information related to the project, and signs that show that work is in progress, such as:

  • Demolition Job Site Signs
  • Construction Area Signs
  • Maintenance Signs
  • Scaffolding Signs

Work in Progress signs, specifically, are a type of sign that is meant to show people what construction is being completed. These are more focused on detailed information than other safety signs. They’re information panel signs rather than just brief instructions of what areas around the construction to avoid. Some types of information often found on a work in progress sign include:

  • Company Name
  • Contact Information for General Contractor and Building Owner
  • Brief Description of the Construction Project
  • Anticipated Completion Date
  • Permit

There are also simple, basic, “Work in Progress” text signs that are simply used to inform someone that work is taking place in that location.

Why Use Job Site Signs

Installing the correct job site signage is a must for a construction project. Many are standard signs, but considering more customized signs can also benefit your site. With the proper signs, you can:

  • Ensure Safety - Letting construction workers and the public know about nearby hazards and health requirements on your job site helps protect everyone.
  • Generate Excitement - A sign can be used to advertise the finished construction or contractors, and build interest in a new store, residential building, and more.
  • Meet Regulations - If your job site is subject to local requirements for safety, and most sites are, having the right signs is necessary. We can assist you in determining which signs are required as well.

In addition to these benefits, Blue Dot Signs offers the job site signs that will work for your project. Our signs are affordable, durable, and have the material and installation options to ensure they work wherever they are needed on the property.
