Safety Signs warn of workplace hazards and instruct employees on the proper precautions to take to avoid injuries in the workplace. They are so common that most people don’t consciously even see them, however, people can immediately recognize the warnings and their intended messages.
The specific layout and design of these signs has been proven to quickly convey important messages, even when people hardly glance at them. All employers are required to utilize these types of signs whenever there is a serious hazard in the area.

Safety Instruction Signs – These signs offer instructions for how someone should act or perform to avoid possible hazards. The instructions can be either positive (do this…) or negative (do not do this…).
