What are construction safety signs?
How can you tell if you are building a building and should take them down?
The safety signs will give you some clue of where you are putting your construction equipment and help you keep your property safe from the hazards of construction work.
If you are not sure if you should have them up, the sign will tell you if they are up and should be removed, or if they should be down.
If the sign is up and you have not removed them, the building inspector will ask you if you would like them down, if you do not want them down and why.
If they are down, the inspector will give a number, usually the sign’s date, which you can ask the inspector to check on your property, or ask someone else to check it for you.
When the inspector has checked your property and you can remove the sign, you should do so.
When building signs are up, you can see how much work the building has already started and will need to complete before it starts work.
If you see a sign up, it means there is work on the project.
When a building sign is down, it is likely the work has been finished.
The building will usually tell you when the work is done.
Inspections are usually held to check that your construction is safe and that the work that has been started is safe.
If the work can’t be finished in time, the inspectors will advise you of what work needs to be completed.
The signs should be placed on top of your structure and are not visible from the outside.
The inspectors will tell your owner if there are any issues with the construction or if there is any problem with the equipment or materials used.
If your signs are on top, the signs can be seen from all around your home.
It is a good idea to make sure your signs will not block out neighbours who are also using the building.
You should also be aware that construction work can sometimes cause a building to collapse.
The inspector will not be able to tell the difference between a collapse and a failure.
If your building collapses, you will need emergency assistance to get it up.

If a building is in a state of emergency, it will not comply with any building code requirements and may be unsafe to use.
This includes a building with construction safety codes or a building where construction is underway and is likely to take place in the next two weeks.
If a building does not comply, it could be a fire hazard.
Construction in Colorado is regulated by the Colorado Building Code, which requires that all construction projects be approved and constructed according to the state’s safety standards.
The state has some construction safety standards for buildings, including:The Denver Department of Construction and Inspections has more information about building codes.
