What Are Construction Warning Tapes?

Construction warning tapes are brightly coloured plastic tapes with bold text
that highlight a particular hazard, such as electrical cables, open sewers or
asbestos. They’re often non-adhesive and designed to be stretched between poles
or barriers, making them more visible to passers-by, or buried in trenches
above the hazard to warn future construction workers. Those designed to
highlight subterranean hazards, such as buried cables or pipes, are known as underground warning tapes.
