    most of our mcc's and substations are out in the plant, we do not have electrical rooms, so when we are doing electrical work we are in high traffic areas. so we bought retractable 25 ' caution tape, mounted magnets on back of unit so we can move them as needed and they are kept on our remote racking cart. for storage and easy access.

    Voted all of the above because cones, tape and limited access are all used. However, this is on a controlled site, with not access by the public, and well acquainted with radioactive NDE work so barrier tape gets a lot of respect.
