I recently moved into a house we custom built in a new area. The neighborhood is still developing so over the last few months we have seen numerous workers in the area building houses for eager new residents of the community. They work outside and at a great height when they are doing roofing or laying brick or siding near the top of the houses. The wind can have a notable implication on their work. There is a real but manageable danger that winds can present in construction zones.
Rain, snow and ice and heat are the frequently cited dangers when working outdoors, however, heavy winds can be just as perilous. For instance, just yesterday I witnessed a gust of wind blow a poor worker’s lunch right off his ladder’s shelf and into a muddy puddle. He was relatively lucky as far as safety goes, his co-workers only need to worry about his mood from being hangry but it occurred to me that there were other threats to his safety present as a result of the windspeed that day.
Let’s go through some common hazards presented by windspeeds on site and talk about how we can mitigate the risks of these hazards on location.
Construction sites need windsocks to help workers and visitors determine the risk that windspeeds can have on their operations that day. Construction subcontractors also need a way to brand themselves while on site, so they remain memorable and identifiable on location.
One easy way to mark your place on location and marry your brand with one that is known for safety is to have a custom printed windsock on location.
Windsocks are beneficial for keeping construction sites safe. Understanding windspeed and wind direction will help you plan for which type of work should be performed and when. Keep your site safe and your brand visible by using a custom printed windsock on your construction site!
Keep safe out there.

We often get questions about how to care for your windsock. They wear and tear from the rain, hail, wind, sun, and snow (if you’re lucky enough to live where it snows). Windsocks take a lot of abuse from the elements. Imagine how you would look if you had to remain outside 24/7 through all the seasons!
