Workplace Signs FAQ

Workplace safety signs are a visible way to remind employees of the risks in their environment. These signs are created to make employees aware of potential hazards, dangers, and warning.

We can see these signs at construction sites, factories, kitchens, classrooms, offices, recreational areas and many other places where we work or spend time.

They are used to communicate messages to workers, visitors, and passersby about what is allowed in the workplace.

Moreover, they also provide vital information about any potential hazards or safety concerns in the vicinity.

Safety signs are significant because they are used to protect both workers and visitors from various dangers. These signs can be found at different places in a workplace, depending on what types of hazards may be present.

Safety signs are important for both the workers and the visitors to the workplace. They are designed to help people know what safety precautions to take, what they should avoid doing, and what they should do if an emergency arises.

Each type of sign has a distinct meaning and purpose. They serve different purposes for different situations. A lot of times these signs can be seen with an arrow pointing to something that is unsafe or that needs attention.

This depends on the type of safety signs you will be using in your workplace. For instance, TRADESAFE aluminum safety signs have 1/5" drilling holes in each corner which you could screw to the wall (screws not included). Make sure to place your safety signs on a strategic part of the wall, where they can be seen up close, at a distance, and from different angles.

As for TRADESAFE floor sticker safety signs, all you have to do is to peel off the back to reveal a strong acrylic adhesive that will stick very securely on most surfaces as long as they have been cleaned and dusted off. Ideally, floor signs should be placed on the floor but you can choose to stick them on walls as long as these signs serve their purpose.

OSHA has the 29 CFR 1910.145 guideline for tags and signs for hazard identification as well as design requirements and when safety signages should be used.However, it is the ANSI Z535 that elaborates on the design elements for compliance. According to both ANSI and OSHA, there are 3 primary safety sign classifications based on severity:

  • Danger signs indicate the presence of the most serious hazard with a high possibility of seriously injuring or even killing someone who fails to avoid or take special precautions. A white “DANGER” word with a safety alert symbol is printed on a header with a red background.
  • Warning signs are used for informing people of a hazard that might seriously injure or even kill someone, but the overall risk of a warning sign hazard is not as severe as that of danger sign hazards. A black “WARNING” with a safety alert symbol is printed on a header with an orange background.
  • Caution signsare hazards that might result in moderate or minor injuries if not avoided. A black “CAUTION” with a safety alert symbol is printed on a yellow background header.

As an industry practice, there should be safety labels and signs anywhere in the facility where hazards may be present. You can take advantage of other types of signs that, although they do not feature any particular hazard, remind employees to stay safe and practice safety. These are:

  • Notice signs - display info about rules, instructions, directions, and more.
  • Admittance signs - prohibit unauthorized personnel from entering a restricted area.
  • General safety signs - exhibit broad messages related to safety, medical equipment, general safety measures, and more.
  • Non-hazard signs - simply display general safety facility information and have nothing to do with communicating hazards. One example is a restroom sign.
  • Fire safety signs - mark where to find fire exit paths and firefighting equipment.

No. Safety signs should be reliableat all times. As such, constructing them to be dependent on electricity or batteries defeats their purpose. What if the battery energy runs out or electricity gets cut off? Unless a workplace has enough budget for power generators, safety signs in the aforementioned situations would become useless.

As such, TRADESAFE designed workplace safety signs to be highly reflective so that they remain visible even in low-light conditions. This is made possible by the glass bead reflective film coating.

Red safety signages are used for danger signs and labels. They prohibit people from accessing a highly dangerous area. Red is also the color used for fire safety and exit signs which aim to direct people towards the right and safe path people can go to in cases of emergency.
Yellow is the color used for caution signs telling people about the presence of a hazard that may not cause severe injuries, but would still help if people are made aware of such hazards. Yellow is also used for labeling products as flammable.
