Workplace safety programs have many parts, all of which are important to keeping people safe on the job. Safety signs play a key role, though, in many aspects of safety from notifying people of tripping hazards and PPE requirements to explaining arc flash and chemical hazards. These signs must be noticeable, easy to read, and in many cases, comply with OSHA standards for safety signs. These standards can include formatting and content requirements. Since safety is considered the 6S in the 5S program, taking steps to keeping workers safe is a key to a successful and productive business.

Common Signs for Safety
Workplace health & safety signs communicate important information about hazards. Common hazard warning signs include:
- Danger signs
- Warning signs
- Caution signs
These signs contain a standard header prescribed by OSHA and have standard text and pictograms. These components make warning signs compliant OSHA signs.
Hazard signs can be used for a wide variety of situations such as chemical hazards, arc flash, slip/trip/fall hazards, fire hazards, dangerous atmospheres, and hazardous equipment. Whatever dangers your workplace has, you can likely find a safety sign or create a custom version that meets OSHA guidelines.
Other safety signs direct people to first aid equipment, fire-fighting equipment, and other important locations. Businesses must mark these items, as they are critical when responding to an emergency. In addition, exit signs and signs directing people to evacuation routes and meeting points are critical to safety.
Additional Workplace Signs
Many safety signs are mandatory signs, but adding other informational signs can also contribute to workplace safety.
- Prohibition signs – Signs instructing people not to smoke, not to enter certain areas, not to wear certain types of footwear, etc. can all be important to safety.
- Security signs – These signs protect people and property by keeping people out of locations where they shouldn’t go.
- Office signs – These signs often provide directions or instructions to help people perform tasks.
If a sign will help increase safety, it’s worth having in the workplace. Businesses should remember, though, that if too many signs are present in an area, the important messages might get overlooked or diluted. First achieve compliance with signs, make sure important information is emphasized, and then add signs as needed. Just don’t overdo it.
