Safety signs in the workplace are an indispensable way of protecting employees from accidents. Their purpose is to convey information in a comprehensive way about objects and situations that can be dangerous. In case of a fire, for instance, well placed signs can speed up the evacuation of a building and help those giving first aid.
Common dangerous situations are:
- Marked-out danger zones.
- Danger of falling objects.
- Trip hazards and slippery floors.
- Exposure to harmful substances, gases or vapours.
- Machines being repaired or being in maintenance.
- Fast evacuation of contaminated places, etc...
The following methods can be used to reduce the risks of these dangerous situations:
- Safety signs that use symbols or text with a recognised safety colour.
- Labels that identify products, leads, pipes etc.
- Safety lock systems for valves, installations etc.
- Posts, chains and tapes to indicate dangerous zones.
