Workplace safety can be achieved with the use of correct industrial safety devices and supplies. Signs are one of the common tools used in the workplace to communicate hazards and help maintain safety and security. Generally, signs are used to convey information across different work areas. Installing wall signs on every critical location ensures important information is noticed by workers.
Here at TRADESAFE, we value every worker’s safety. We endeavor to provide different industries with the right safety materials to help them run their businesses smoothly. Our wide selection of safety signs include wall signs that primarily communicate warnings and information within the facility. These ready-to-use signs meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and ANSI Z535 regulations. Furthermore, each wall sign is engineered using waterproof and corrosion-resistant materials, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
When workers’ safety is the number one priority, industrial facilities should invest in quality and reliable safety materials to ensure hazards can be prevented or minimized. Floors, though often ignored, should be properly marked to increase workplace safety and improve communication across different work areas.TRADESAFE offers a wide assortment of floor stickers that are ready-to-use and compliant to OSHA and ANSI standards.

Furthermore, they are guaranteed to be durable and able to maintain its text and colors even after a long time of use.
Communication is vital in any industry. In a workplace where people speak different languages, it is highly important to ensure there is clear communication with everyone. Safety signs become less relevant when not all workers understand the message.
Any workplace should be flexible to accommodate the needs of its employees. It cannot be considered a safe working environment when some workers are unaware of vital safety information. Spanish signs help ensure spanish-speaking employees stay alert and informed of workplace hazards. Light reflective, waterproof, and UV-resistant, TRADESAFE spanish signs are not just temporary safety solutions but are built to withstand even the harshest workplace conditions.

Every industry endeavors to minimize and prevent workplace accidents. Different industrial devices and supplies are used to help reach the goal of ensuring every worker goes home safely everyday. However, businesses should not just focus on putting up warning signs on every corner to communicate hazards, but also promote job safety. Safety scoreboard is an effective reminder and encouragement to workers on why they should take all the necessary precautions to avoid workplace accidents.
TRADESAFE offers a premium selection of safety scoreboards to choose from. Each scoreboard is engineered to be durable, reliable, and highly visible so employees can easily see them. We understand how demanding a work area can be, so all our workplace signs are designed to withstand even the harshest work environments.
Workplace Safety Signs FAQs
What are the main types of signs found in a workplace?
ANSI Z535 series of standards recognize five types of signs: danger signs, warning signs, caution signs, notice signs, and safety instruction signs.
Danger signs feature a white text on a red background and should be used for the most dangerous hazards in the workplace.
Warning signs feature a black text on an orange background and signifies there is a serious hazard in a work area.
Caution signs feature a black text on a yellow background and are used for hazardous situations that may result in minor or moderate injury.
Notice signs feature a white text on a blue background and designed to relay other information not related to safety and when there is no imminent hazard in the area.
Safety instruction signs feature a white text on a green background and convey safety-related information.
What are safety tools and materials can I use along with signs?
Sign is the most common visual communication used by most industries. However, other forms of visual communication are also available such as floor tapes, floor marking shapes, vinyl labels, and lock out tagout tags. These materials are also used to communicate hazards and safety information within the workplace.
Can all signs be mounted to the wall?
Wall signs are designed to be mounted to the wall. Floor signs are meant to be stuck to the floors. When installed incorrectly, a sign may cause confusion rather than ensure effective communication.
Do you accept custom design for signs?
Do all signs really have symbols on them?
A symbol is an effective way to communicate dangers, warnings, and information especially in a workplace where employees speak different languages. OSHA has added the use of a safety alert symbol on its safety sign standard. ANSI, on the other hand, has a specific standard regarding symbols, which can be found under ANSI Z535.3. For a workplace sign to meet OSHA and ANSI standards, it should have a symbol as part of its design along with a concise message.
