Signs prevent slips, trips, and falls the risks that might be present in your working environment. If you don’t already have this kind of signage, now is a great opportunity to get some. Injuries, industry violations, and increased insurance costs may all be avoided with the use of effective signage.
There are many other kinds of warning signs, such as those for chemical hazards, physical hazards, and upkeep of facilities, and you may want to think about adding some of them to your arsenal. In addition, now is an excellent opportunity to review the policies, procedures, and standards that govern signage.
Signage indicating the location of emergency equipment and the location of the sign itself should be positioned at a height of 78 inches so that it is visible both from a distance and to anyone looking up. When placed at eye level and in areas where personnel execute jobs or operate equipment, signs reading “Danger,” “Warning,” and “Caution” are the most effective. To ensure visibility even in hazy situations, position wayfinding signs and route markers on the ground or no more than 18 inches from the ground.
Using safety signs with high contrast is a useful technique to eliminate the possibility of “blind spots” in safety signage. Signage that is composed of big fonts, vivid colors, and thick borders has a greater potential to attract the attention of employees. The intensity of the risk should be used to decide on the symbols, text, and background colors for the warning signs.
