Description

The best way to manage the job hazards is to make sure every step is taken to avoid them. One way to help prevent accidents is by utilizing a safety signage program to keep employees informed and educated about possible hazards, company procedures, and general safety tips.

Overview/Description From construction and manufacturing employees to public utilities and emergency response workers, people within every kind of service-related industry require clear, informative signs to convey directional, instructional, or safety information. Take a look around. Over time, it is easy for work areas and wall surfaces to become faded or cluttered with various signs. Once this begins to happen, the impact of particular messages becomes lost. Important messages, such as those regarding safety, should always take precedence over others. Other, less pertinent signs or graphics that may be overshadowing or drowning out the safety-related signs should be moved to a different location or removed altogether.  It is vital to prepare for the unexpected. For example, if there were an emergency within the workplace, would a visitor be able to easily comprehend his location and exit the building? Directional signage always should be unobstructed and placed in locations that are easily accessible from all viewpoints. The standard for all exit signs is red letters, at least 6 inches in height, on a white background. In industrial or manufacturing facilities where there is an increased likelihood of injury, adequate signs are absolutely crucial and required by law. Evaluate equipment and make sure all machinery displays proper warning messages and safety reminders, such as “Protective Eyewear Must Be Worn While Operating.” And be sure the signs are located where workers can easily view them.  Course Content
