Health and Safety Signs.
Health and safety is an issue that is impossible to ignore and while it seems you can hardly go anywhere without seeing a safety sign of some sort, they do have a vital role to play in communicating safety information. They are intended to minimise or eliminate the risk of an accident occurring in your workplace or public space and should be universally understood way of getting your message across.
All standard signage is available in a wide variety of finishes. At Solar Graphics we pride ourselves on our bespoke signage and the ability to supply your health and safety signs as a simple self-adhesive label right through to digitally printing your safety message direct to glass and stainless steel where a more prestigious finish is required. All signs supplied whether they be from our standard range through to the more elaborate bespoke signs all conform to current regulations.
Standard safety signs fall into five categories :
These signs are of a round shape, represented by a black pictogram on a white background, a red edge with diagonal line and are used to prevent an action where there is danger.
These signs are triangular and have a black pictogram on a yellow background with black edging. They warn of danger and for precautions and / or care to be taken to prevent them.
Mandatory signs require that specified actions are to be followed. These signs are typically associated with the compulsory wearing of personal protective equipment. They are round in shape and have a white pictogram on a blue background.
FIRE FIGHTING SIGNS
These signs are rectangular or square in shape and have a white pictogram on a red background and are used to identify and locate fire fighting equipment.
These signs are rectangular or square in shape and have a white pictogram on a green background and provide instructions on the safe way of doing something or where a safety item is located. The most common use of these signs is to provide directions as to the nearest fire escape route.
