What do you need to know about Safety Signs:
Environmental & facility safety signs are usually larger because they are observed at further distances. These signs usually contain lesser amounts of information for visual clarity at a distance. Signs should be placed in a clearly visible location and should be protected from damage and obliteration.
- When safety signs are distinguished by their color code (ANSI Z535.2) they become useful tools to help protect the health and safety of personnel at the workplace.
- Safety signs are a supplement to, and NOT a substitute for, the required protective measures for eliminating or reducing the hazards in the workplace.
- Reading and understanding safety signs displayed on machinery or around your facility will help minimize the possibility of accidents and increase hazard awareness.
