A safety barrier comprises at least one upright post supported in a socket, the cross-section of the post having at least one concavity, and the socket having a cross-section which includes a convex portion shaped to extend into the concavity when the post is fitted in the socket. The convex portion of the socket cross-section preferably extends along the entire length of the socket, but (if desired) the socket can be formed with a cover including an aperture for receiving the post, which can provide the convex portion. The lower end of the socket can be closed if desired. A socket for supporting a post of a safety barrier system (per se) is also described, having a cross-section which includes a convex portion. The convex portion is suitably shaped to extend into a concavity of a post fitted in the socket. Further, a kit is described comprising such a socket and a post, the cross-section of the post having at least one concavity into which the convex portion of the socket is shaped to extend.
