Safety Signs and Equipment

assortment of road and safety signs graphic

Safety signs and site equipment are needed in a range of environments, from nurseries and schools to hospitals, offices, shops, hotels, conference centres and building sites. These signs are used to convey clear, unambiguous messages that can be easily understood by everyone, even when English is not their first language. This is helped by the use of easily recognisable symbols, such as fire exit running man, no smoking and chemical hazard. In addition, our site equipment includes road barriers, traffic cones and more to ensure areas can be coned off to avoid hazards and prevent injuries.

Who Needs To Display Safety Signs

The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 requires the employer to ensure that safety signs are provided and maintained in circumstances where there is a significant risk to health and safety that cannot be controlled or removed by any other means. Importantly, these rules make it clear that safety signs are not a substitute for other ways of controlling risks to employees. Signs are designed to warn of any remaining risk or to instruct employees of the measures they should take, such as the wearing of foot protection.

Safety Sign Colours And Meanings

Safety signs have a very specific colour coding convention, with each having their own meaning:

Green – Safe Condition. These include first aid and drinking water signs, as well as fire exit signs.

Red – Prohibition and Fire Equipment Signs. Prohibition signs should be used to show that certain actions must be avoided, such as restricted or no access, no smoking, no dogs. Fire equipment signs should be used to both shows the location of fire fighting equipment as well as alarm activation points.

Yellow – Hazard Warning Signs. Normally accompanied with the words danger, caution or warning, these signs should be used to provide a clear warning message.

Blue – Mandatory Signs. These instructional signs give clear guidance on what actions must be taken. For instance, the wearing of PPE, reporting to reception and keeping a door shut or locked.
