Signs of Safety
After a break, everyone’s relaxed in their post-holiday bubble and it can be easy to become a bit lax and rest on your laurels when it comes to safety. Back to work is a great time for a blank canvas to refresh and create effective safety signage and get people paying attention to ensure your workplace is safe.
In an industrial work environment, safety signs are a high priority. These signs are the frontline in preventing injury and educating both guests and employees as to the hazards of their surroundings. If a crisis situation arises, signs give your staff immediate direction to act quickly. If you neglect necessary signage and an accident occurs, you may face legal action.
Keeping staff alerted to dangers can help ward off industrial accidents, so compliance to Standard AS: 1319 is imperative. This sets out the requirements and use of safety signs which regulate and control how people act as well as notify them of perils and provide information to lessen risk.
Generaly speaking, your signage needs to be legible from a distance without needing to squint. Factor in the space, lighting and viewing distance when determining the size of your signage.
