Sign Installation Safety Issues Encountered on the Job Formal training is essential. By Bill Dundas ign installation work requires the proper training, equipment and procedures. When followed and used correctly, these factors combine to create a safe and efficient work environment. Some of the key safety precautions for sign installers may seem obvious at first glance, yet these are exactly the requirements that are needed to prevent the most common types of occupational accidents and employer liability. So, even well-known safety rules are not always put in practice. On-the-job training is certainly valuable, but formal safety training is truly essential. Without formal training, sign installers who have learned strictly by watching others at work are often left unaware of certain crucial safety requirements. And since the work they perform encompasses a variety of trades, it is essential for them to have broad-based training.
