Proper use of safety signs is an effective way to reduce workplace accidents and injuries. Additionally, new safety signs can help keep employees' attention on essential messages designed to improve safety.
Safety signs in the workplace are so effective, they are regulated by both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). These organizations have established rules and regulations to ensure safety signs are easily identifiable, relevant, and posted in appropriate workplace locations.
5S Red Tag Area Signs
Active Threat Signs

Chemical Signs can help properly mark hazardous materials and avoid injury or worse, because chemical hazards are often in and around every workplace. Some chemicals are visible to the eye and some dangers are clearly invisible. Mixing chemicals can be poisonous and ultimately result in death. That's why it's critical that chemical signs are posted throughout facilities to alert others of such hazards.
Protect your employees and reinforce safe practices by communicating the type of substance or the risks associated with the chemical on your sign. Place Signs on doors to limit access to authorized personnel only. Mount signs to buildings to communicate no smoking or open flame. Keep others safe and avoid the unexpected with the appropriate Chemical sign.
Confined Space Signs
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146 states "Confined space means a space that: (1) is large enough and so configured that an employee can bodily enter and perform assigned work; and (2) Has limited or restricted means for entry or exit (for example, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, and pits are spaces that may have limited means of entry.); and (3) is not designed for continuous employee occupancy.
The construction industry is a high hazard profession and requires workers to adapt to ever-changing locations and working environments. Many construction workers are working with various power tools, at different heights, and in ever-changing working conditions. Workers need visual cues to be informed of hazards. That's why construction safety signs must be posted throughout a construction site to inform workers of possible dangers.
The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) has developed a consistent design that's easily recognizable for French and English workers to understand. The signs incorporate a simple message and a pictogram that is quickly identifiable - even by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Research shows that companies that have implemented a uniform system of signs and colors, have a significantly lowered injury rate in the workplace. Keep others safe by posting highly recognizable CSA Signs in appropriate areas in your plant, workplace, or facility.
Decibel Meter Signs
According to the Centers for Disease Control, around 22 million people are diagnosed with an occupational hearing loss per year. Most of this is preventable with proper ear protection. Although most people know that constant noise relates to hearing loss, not everyone always wears hearing protection, and some noises that cause hearing issues are not even audible to the human ear.
This is why hearing protection and decibel meter signs are extremely important. They can warn people that the noise in an area is dangerous faster than a decibel meter can.
Eco Safety Signs
Eco Safety Signs protect people and our environment. Signs are available in three sustainable formats: 94% recycled aluminum, 70% post-consumer recycled plastic, or recycled self-adhesive.

Electrical Signs are important to all industries, because high voltage equipment, battery charging and storage areas, wiring, and switches, all pose risk to workers. Electrical hazards are one of the greatest workplace safety threats to workers. Although most workers are aware of the general danger of electrocution and electrical shock, many workers are unaware of the specific electrical hazards present in their daily work environment, making them more vulnerable to these dangers. Safety signs must be placed around electrical areas to give notice of electrical shock hazard risks.
During an emergency, people turn to signs to help guide them to safety. Where are the nearest emergency exits, first aid kits, or tornado shelter locations - these are questions that need to be answered right away during a crisis.

Ensure your workplace is well-informed by mounting Fire Safety Signs in your facility.
Fire Safety Signs promote a safe environment and must be posted in conspicuous locations for all to see. In the event of a fire, a sign that reads FDC (Fire Department Connection) can help the fire department extinguish the fire quickly by connecting a hose line from a pumper truck to the FDC. Fire Exit, Fire Extinguisher, NFPA 170 pictograms and Fire Door Keep Closed provide a few life-saving instructions and must be acknowledged in order to keep you safe.

Personal Protection Signs

Clear and proper PPE signs in the facility inform employees and visitors of hazards in the workplace and alert employees to wear their personal protective equipment for ear protection, eye protection, head protection, shoes, respirators etc. PPE signs should be placed where they are clearly visible to everyone. A good spot for a PPE sign is on the door, or in a highly visible location on the wall.
Restrictions protect people from entering into potentially dangerous zones. By limiting access or deterring people and/or items from entering a building, street, or any public place, others are protected from harm and remain safe.
Post Restriction Signs to inform and protect visitors and employees from entering into potentially dangerous situations. Some Restriction Signs communicate laws governed by the state you live in, such as Concealed Weapon Signs, while others permit No Smoking or Alcohol in specific locations. Other examples of signs that limit access are Do Not Enter, Authorized Personnel Only, Keep Out, and No Trespassing allowed.
