Why do safety signs have pictures on them?

Images on safety signs can reinforce the safety message a workplace sign aims to communicate. Symbols are more easily understood at a glance than text, which might take a little bit of time just by reading it. This is why most safety signs include images that represent a safety hazard. TRADESAFE safety wall signs comply with the OSHA and ANSI standards for images that must be included.
