................................................................................................................................... 4 Many construction projects require the barricadi ng of areas to protect against hazards that are present. For example there may be work activities going on at upper levels where objects could fall potentially striking some one, tripping hazards, or radiation hazards. When planning for hazards you must also take into consideration other methods to protect from the hazard and do not just rely on signs and barricade tape as the first or only opt ion. Tools,

materials and equipment can be secured (tied off) to prevent them from falling to lower leve ls. Debris nets or shielding can be used to prevent demo materials from falling below. Toe boards or fully covered guardr ail shielding could be installed along upper level walkways or floors. Trip hazards could be covered or removed. These options should be considered along with the use of barricade tape and informational barricade tags There are three basic types of bar ricade tape generally found and used at construction sites and it is important to note the differences. 7.1 Caution Tape (yellow)

Caution tape has yellow as the predominant bac kground color with the words "CAUTION" all along the tape. This tape is used to warn against potential hazards inside the area that is barricaded off. If there is an alternate route around the caution tape barricaded off area, then it should be used by those not associated with the spec ific activity. If it is necessary to enter or cross through the caution taped off area, then the barricade tag hanging off the caution tape must be read to understand what the hazards are inside before proceeding through. Only after clearly understanding what the

hazards are shoul d anyone cross through or go into an area that has been caution tape barricaded off. Never remove any caution tape or tags without the permission from an authorized member of the crew who is responsible for work being done within the caution taped off area. 7.1.1 Caution Tape Tag (yellow) A Cianbro barricade tag must be completed and hung off all caution barricade tape being used by Cianbro crews. The tag should be placed at a location where persons other than the work crew inside the barricaded area will most likely see it. More than one tag may be necessary. The tag must be

co mpletely filled out with the name of the person putting up the barricade tape. 7.2 Danger Tape (red) Danger tape has red as the predominant background color with the words "DANGER" all along the tape. This tape is to be used only where an immediate hazard exists inside the area that is barricaded off. Like the use of caution tape, if there is an al ternate route ar ound the danger tape barricaded off area, then it should be used by those not associated with the specific activity. If it is necessary to enter or cr oss a danger taped off area, then the barricade tag hanging off the danger

tape must be read to understand what the hazards are. Only with permission from an authorized member of the crew who is responsible for work being done within the danger taped off area, is anyone allow ed to cross through or enter a danger taped off area. Never remove any danger tape or tags wi thout the permission of an authorized member of the crew who is responsible for work being done within the danger taped off area. Never go into a danger taped off area without permission.

Policy: 040 Work Area Barricade Protection Rev. 06/03/11 Page 3 7.2.1 Danger Tape Tag (red) A

Cianbro barricade tag must be completed and hung off all danger barricade tape being used by Cianbro crews. The tag should be placed at a location where persons other than the work crew inside the barricaded area will most likely see it. More than one tag may be necessary. The tag must be co mpletely filled out with the name of the person in charge of the work activities working inside the barricade area. Also, the name of each member of the work crew mu st be listed on the backside of the barricade tag. Any authorized person, whose name is listed on the tag, may authorize other person’s

access inside the barricade area. 7.2.2 First line supervisors responsible for work activities requiring the use of barricade tape, must ensure they use the appropriate tape and tag "danger or caution" based on the activities to be preformed, and include this in their activity plan. Proper installation of the tape and tags must be communicated to each member of the work crew performing the activities requiring the use of barricade tape. Each crewmember is responsible to ensure the integrity of the tape and tags is maintained and guard against unauthorized persons crossing into the taped off

work area. 7.2.3 Barricade tape should be removed as soon as possible when the work and danger is past or completed. 7.3 Radiation Tape (yellow/magenta) Radiation tape has yellow as the predominant background color with the words “Caution Radiation Area” and/or a radiation symbol in t he color magenta all along the tape. This tape is to be used only where an immediate radiation ha zard exists inside the area that is barricaded off. Like the use of caution and danger tape, if there is an alte rnate route around the radiation tape barricaded off area, then it should be used by those not

associated with the specific activity. Only with permission from an authoriz ed member of the crew who is responsible for work being done within the radiation taped off area, is anyone allowed to cross through or enter a radiation taped off area. Never remove any radiation tape without the permission of an authorized member of the crew who is respon sible for work being done within the radiation taped off area. Never go into a radiation tape d off area without permission. 7.3.1 When planning for radiation hazards at nuclear plants or if radioactive sources are needed for testing or x-rays, a

competent person is required who can identify safe approach distances to radiation source s and place barricade tape accordingly. 7.3.2 Tagging of Radiation Tape Since radiation tape is treated the same as danger tape, a red danger tag should be hung off all radiation barricade tape being used by Cianbro crews. The tag should be placed at a location where persons other than the work crew inside the barricaded area will most likely see it. More than one tag may be necessary. The tag must be completely filled out with the name of the person in charge of the work activities working inside the

barricade area. Also, the name of each member of the work crew must be listed on the backside of the barri cade tag. Any authorized person, whose name is listed on the tag, may authorize other person’s access inside the barricade area. 7.4 Disciplinary Procedures / Enforcement Team members (any Cianbro team member) crossi ng or removing red danger tape or radiation tape without permission from an authorized member of the crew who is responsible for work being done within the taped off area is subject to those consequences listed in Cianbro's Zero Tolerance - Safety Accountability Policy and

Procedure. REMEMBER, YOUR SAFETY IS OUR MOST IMPORTANT GOAL!
