What Safety Signage Do You Need?

Whether you run a warehouse, a factory, a workshop, a hospitality venue or a retail outlet, you need to ensure that everyone on the premises is informed of possible hazards and what to do in the event of an emergency. The relevant legislation includes the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1995, which dictates what standard types of sign are mandatory and where and when they should be used.

The requirements include the display of a health and safety legislation poster which tells all employees what they need to know, a first aid sign that points them in the direction of a first aid box if it’s needed, no smoking signs and more. If there are particular potential hazards on your premises, such a low ceilings or trip hazards, these must also be clearly marked if the risk cannot be totally removed. Notification of the requirement to wear certain types of personal protective equipment (PPE) is an additional mandatory sign that must be displayed if applicable.

Fire Notices and More

All business premises must also clearly display fire notices that tell the building occupants and visitors what to do in the event of a fire, and fire exit and emergency escape signs are also needed to direct people out of the building if fire or another incident occurs.

Many of these safety signs have a standard approved format and there are fines and more severe penalties for not complying with the legal requirements. Luckily, at Phoenix Signs, we can help. In business since 1979, we have a great deal of experience in signage of all types and can advise on and supply the relevant signs for your business premises to ensure you’re legally compliant.
