Safety signs are a legal requirement for all workplaces. The colour and design of a safety sign correspondents to the purpose it is intended to serve. Safety signs should be displayed prominently at an appropriate size based on the distance they are being viewed from. You should determine the safety signs you need in your workplace by conducting a risk assessment.
When Must Safety Signs Be used?
Safety signs must be used when there is a significant risk that can't be avoided adequately or reduced. Before installing a safety sign, we advise the employer to determine if the hazard can be reduced or avoided through other means as per HSE guidelines. If this is not possible, we have a huge range of safety signs here at VSafety that can help reduce risks, available from just 30p today.
