According to OSHA standards for safety colors, the color red on any type of visual communication tool, whether it’s floor marking, a wall sign, or a label, typically indicates danger. A hazard is classified as dangerous if there is an immediate risk. If the risk is moderate, a warning is provided, and if there is merely a potential for risk, “Caution” is used instead.
To alert workers and visitors to any dangerous hazard in your workplace, use OSHA danger labels. These labels use compliant signal words, headers, and colors to warn people of extreme hazards such as radiation areas, trespassing, and electrical panels. Help your facility stay OSHA compliant and keep workers safe by investing in OSHA danger labels today.
