From warning of potential hazards, and restricting access to informing people of the nearest emergency exit or fire equipment, every organisation needs to be communicating clear and unambiguous health and safety messages by using internationally recognised symbols. This ensures that they can be easily understood by all, even when English is not their first language.
Types of signage that establishments need include:
- Prohibition Signs – to prohibit actions that may be detrimental to safety, e.g. no smoking.
- Warning Signs – to warn of potential risks, e.g. a low ceiling or steep steps.
- Mandatory Signs – to instruct actions or activities that will ensure safety, e.g. wear safety goggles.
- Safe Condition Signs – to indicate exit routes in the event of a fire or emergency.
- Fire Equipment Signs – to indicate the location of fire equipment in the event of a fire.
- Supplementary Information Signs – to give further clarity to safety signs.
