We often get asked why is there different coloured barrier tapes and what are they used for, here is a brief run down on barrier tapes and what the different colours stand for.
Red & White
Red & White Barricade Tape stands for 'DANGER' this is where there is a potentially life threatening danger like a deep excavation or a dangerous machine that could cause life threatening injuries or death.
Black & Yellow
Black & Yellow Barricade Tape stands for 'CAUTION' which is to warn of a hazard that isnt life threatening but could cause injury, examples of these may be piles of building materials or waste or other trip hazards etc.
Blue & White
Blue & White Barricade Tape is used on Railway projects, this is to remove any risk of train drivers mistaking red tape for a red signal on a rail site.
