Free health and safety icons pack for public use published by Pro-Sapien and client ASCO Group

July 11, 2018 • Glasgow, UK

Pro-Sapien Software, specialist providers of EHS software on SharePoint and Office 365, has designed and published a pack of health and safety icons that EHS professionals can use in several ways. The free-to-download pack contains 135 icon images for Mandatory, Prohibition, Warning, Fire, Emergency and Company Standards pictograms that Pro-Sapien clients helped design.

Although initially intended for use within Pro-Sapien’s software only, licensing has been opened to the public domain meaning the icons, which are PNG images, can be adopted by anyone.

The icons were developed through working with some existing clients, such as ASCO Group. ASCO’s request for icons to depict Safety Rules on Pro-Sapien forms is what prompted the creation of an extended selection.

Pro-Sapien recommends that the icons are used for:

  • Displaying next to checklist values on incident, hazard, risk assessment or other types of forms;
  • PowerPoint presentations on the subject of health and safety;
  • Documentation relating to health and safety, such as proposals;
  • Performance reports to enhance the user-experience of understanding data.

Reg Morrison, Global Head of HSEQ at ASCO Group, a UK-based oil and gas clients involved in the development of the icons pack, commented:

“We worked with Pro-Sapien to incorporate Safety Rules icons into our incident form so that users can quickly choose from a grid which rules the incident is associated with, making the form even more user-friendly. As the oil and gas industry moves to standardize safety rules and their pictograms we are pleased that ASCO is ahead of the game with a slick set of icons already in place to depict them. In the past, our industry has found using consistent icons a challenge, so we are pleased to be pioneering, along with Pro-Sapien, the roll out of the new industry icon pack and look forward to introducing them to our workers”

Pro-Sapien’s new health and safety icons pack will remove much of the effort for clients and the public alike in finding modern, standardized pictograms. This new resource consists of:

  • 36 Mandatory icons
  • 34 Prohibition icons
  • 31 Warning icons
  • 11 Emergency icons
  • 9 Fire icons
  • 14 Company Standards icons

Hannah Stewart, Digital Marketing Manager at Pro-Sapien who headed up the project, commented:

“Our product team found that clients were sometimes stuck with poor quality, mismatched sets of health and safety icons that had been collected over the years; this inspired us to work with a couple of our clients such as ASCO to create a bank of modern icons that could be used instead. As the selection of icons has grown, and since much of the content was created inhouse, we could see no reason not to offer the library as a resource for all EHS professionals. Having over 100 standardized health and safety icons in the one place hopefully makes a lot of people’s lives easier and will also assist in making EHS forms, presentations or reports a lot more engaging.”

Users can be confident that the icons adhere to ISO 7010 guidelines ensuring the standardization of shapes and colors of safety signs across the globe. However, it is recommended that the icons are only used electronically and for assistance, and not for communicating safety instructions onsite (subject to the Disclaimer).

The health and safety icons pack is available for download from the Pro-Sapien website here: https://www.pro-sapien.com/resources/downloads/health-safety-icons/

Safety Sign Colors and International Standards

Colors make a difference to our environment. They help us analyze the surroundings and distinguish between objects. We recognize plants as green and the sky as blue, whereas a frog, for example, can be either green or blue. Deviant colors, in this case blue, warns us about poisonousness. If we detect unusual colors in our food, for example, we associate them with rottenness, which then activates a warning in our mind “Don’t eat!” Colors cause diverse feelings and opinions, and even distinct…See More
