3 Legislative Benefits of our Safety signs
1. All signs are compliant with legislative requirements enforced by the HSE (Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999). The Regulations require employers to ensure that safety signs are provided (or in place) and maintained. Signs will be used in circumstances where there is a significant risk to health and safety that has not been removed or controlled by other methods.
2. Our safety signs are designed to meet the UK and EU legislation (BS 5499 & 92/58 EEC). The signboards provide information and instructions by a combination of shape, colour, symbols or pictograms. Many signboards are accompanied by supplementary text, eg ‘Fire Exit’, ‘CCTV in operation’
3. Signs comply with the ISO 7010 standards for all the graphical symbols on hazard, warning signs, prohibition, mandatory and emergency signs. ISO 7010 is intended to provide “safety information that relies as little as possible on the use of words to achieve understanding. Signs are clearly visible, draws attention and are easy to understand; most importantly, if used efficiently they help to save lives.
