Health and Safety Signs – Important Factors

Health and safety signs are a fantastic and simple way to communicate vital information to employees, visitors and the general public. With these types of signs installed you can reduce the risk of any accidents and any subsequent liability claims.

For signs to be effective, make sure you take the following into account:

  • Visibility: Your signs are only going to be able to communicate your health and safety message if they are visible. You need to make sure that they are the correct size to remain visible within the intended viewing distance. Likewise, the text on display needs to be legible to everyone. 
  • Positioning: It’s important to establish exactly where your signs are needed. It’s no good installing a PPE Requirements sign, for example, after the entrance to a construction site. 
  • Durability: Many health and safety precautions will remain long term concerns, so it’s paramount that these signs are durable. And this durability will be dependent on the material of the sign and the environment it is positioned in. Self-adhesive stickers, for example, should be reserved for indoor use where they are protected from the elements. Metal and plastics, with a variety of treatment options available, are considered significantly more durable for exterior positioning.
