Why Safety Signs
Safety Signs are a requirement by law to help protect the safety of every person. The regulations require organisations to use a safety sign where there is a significant risk to health and safety that has not been avoided or controlled by the methods required under other relevant law.
There are various Safety Signs, each with there own classification and use. They are used as an aid to:
communicate information on hazards;
communicate the need for personal protective equipment (where other control strategies are inadequate or impracticable);
communicate the location of safety equipment/emergency facilities (eye wash stations, first aid kit);
give guidance and instruction in an emergency.
It is therefore necessary that all staff be able to understand the message and the risks associated with not following them. It is the responsibility of all organisations and managers to educate their staff on the issue of all safety, as the consequences of not adhering to a danger safety sign could mean possible death.
