“Hands are important in many of our safety signs because they are evocative. The new crane signs help prevent miscommunication by reminding workers what the respective signals mean,” said Rivka Fogel, Manager at MySafetySign.

MySafetySign.com has released new crane signs as safety tools for construction workers and operators. Many of the signs are instructional tools on how to operate cranes. Cranes are precarious pieces of machinery that require exercising the utmost caution.
Crane accidents cause tragic fatalities every year. According to hg.org, the US Labor Department released a survey stating that at least 80 people per year die from crane-related accidents, the majority of which are caused by human error. OSHA updated safety guidelines for crane accidents in 2010, ensuring that crane safety remains a topical issue.
MySafetySign’s signs are innovative in design and intent. The new Crane Hoist Warning Signs indicate the proper hand signals for construction workers to direct cranes. The pictogram of a construction worker making each signal visually reinforces the proper procedures. “Hands are important in many of our safety signs because they are evocative. The new crane signs help prevent miscommunication by reminding workers what the respective signals mean,” said Rivka Fogel, Manager at MySafetySign.
The selection of Crane Signs includes Danger and Caution signs for blaring messages to stay clear of swinging cranes. Passersby must stay away from cranes operating overhead and clear of the crane swing radius. If MySafetySign does not have the specific sign desired, custom options are available. Simply enter text, upload a company logo or graphic and have it tweaked at no extra charge, and the sign will be ready to ship in minutes.
During the process of composing signs, MySafetySign takes great care in using durable materials that last for at least a decade. Aluminum, plastic, and vinyl are all hefty and affordable materials commonly used. Additionally, hard hat labels specifically for cranes are designed to adhere firmly to surfaces and also be removed cleanly. Like signs, the labels are customizable.
