5 Safety Signs to Have in the Workplace

One of the most effective ways to communicate safety in the workplace is through visuals. By implementing clear and easy-to-see safety signs, everyone will be able to identify hazards, instructions or regulations easily. Regardless of the industry you are in, these 5 signs should be in your workplace.

1. Danger signs - Every organization should map out high hazard areas, along with relevant danger signs to mitigate the occurrence of accidents. These signs should be placed in all areas containing life-threatening materials or chemicals, or ares that can cause bodily harm.

2. Prohibitory signs - It is ultimately up to you to outline behaviors or items that are not allowed within an organization. Most organizations have no-smoking signs or labels. The act prohibited may not have direct impact on the safety of the individual involved but it may cause disruptions.

3. Warning signs - These signs alert people to hazards and convey important information about avoiding or dealing with those hazards. For example, setting up a wet floor sign after a spill would be considered an appropriate warning sign as it warns others of a potential hazard. 

4. Traffic and parking signs - Whether the vehicles at your facility operate indoors or out, you need traffic and parking signs to direct traffic flow and prevent accidents. These signs could display a variety of information, including speed limits, restricted areas, pedestrian alerts and more. If you're not sure about the idea of installing signs in these areas, consider using parking lot stencils.

5. Emergency signs: It is the responsibility of the organization to erect enough signs with clear instructions of steps to follow during emergencies. This could be floor signs pointing to emergency exits, a warning of emergency use only, or a sign indicating the emergency stop button.
