Viewing the Safety Signs category, page 1
Aside from the obviousness of the safety sign here, it has two purposes: the prohibition (in red) on the top, and the mandatory (in blue) on the bottom. There is also the clear corporate name and logo on the top and the notice of what it is and where it is – the factory entrance!
This style of sign is ubiquitous especially in industrial estates, but it does need to be big and near where people pass, so the message can be understood.
This style of sign belongs to the safety signs category. Click on that link to see more kinds of articles like this one.
Many of the symbols we see today on safety signs are ones we’ve grown up with, or know from our own work premises (such as this one here). They are ubiquitous in today’s society, but without safety signs there might be a lot more people injured or killed.
They’re not all the same of course, and come in a bewildering array of sizes, styles, types, colours and so on. This one is made from a non-rigid material which then has all of the vinyl text and lettering added for the writing and design.
A great thing about this material is that it can be fixed almost anywhere, and the safety sign needs to do just that, go almost anywhere (we go).
As can be seen from the variety of information found on this safety sign, this is a sign that achieves several goals.
Firstly is the clear notice of where you are, Ward 12, with the mandatory (blue) notice directing visitors to nursing staff to sign in.
Secondly is the dual notices underneath, a warning (yellow) and a prohibition (red). All are clear to see, and there can be no ambiguity, as there are symbols too.
A local leisure centre project has recently come to an end and we have designed and installed the signs all over the complex. This is one small example of a set of signs, in this case a safety sign that is on the children’s water slide in the children’s pool.
Clearly the symbols are easy to see and read, and there are some labels underneath each symbol.
There are many places in industrial estates, industrial buildings or complexes, or offices, where you need a Permit to Work Safety Sign Sticker. It might be because of dangerous machinery, or because of secrecy issues (industrial espionage is real, you know), but whatever the reason this safety sign sticker is easy to understand and clearly shows what is mandatory.
These safety sign stickers are the standard size (100mm x 100mm) and clearly show some form of permit or identification is required.
Here is a safety sign sticker that can be used in a variety of places – the Hot Surface Safety Sign Sticker.
Clearly it shows heat coming off of a surface and immediately I think of a kitchen. Perhaps a restaurant kitchen, or a supermarket rotisserie? There are many different kinds of hot surfaces. Perhaps an industrial use warning employees about a machine with a heated surface?
There are many situations where a Do Not Operate Safety Sign Sticker could come in handy. Perhaps an industrial plant where a machine is undergoing maintenance? Or maybe in conjunction with a No Unauthorised Usage Safety Sign Sticker that would require someone who is fully trained in a machine to use it.
It is very easy to understand this safety sign sticker, the vast majority of people can understand it.
This is a rather odd safety sign sticker, but one that does definately have a place. Perhaps a dance hall where the floor is kept pristine and shiny? Boots wouldn’t be welcome there. Or in an industrial setting for a clean room, or laboratories, or perhaps a carpet showroom – those are places where heavy duty boots would be unwelcome.
It’s clear that the safety sign sticker is indicating a really heavy pair of boots (steelies, nails in the bottom and heel reinforcement). And obviously the prohibition symbol is fairly straightforward – so it’s very easy to understand that this is a No Boots Safety Sign Sticker!
