Improve Workplace Safety with Hazard Signs to Alert Staff and Visitors to Dangers that Cannot Be Removed

If a hazard can be removed from the workplace, it should be. However, there may still be permanent or temporary risks that need to be highlighted. Hazard Warning Signs bring attention to the hazard with clear, recognisable visual indicators and so reduce the risk of accidents.
 

What are Hazard Signs?

Usually in yellow and black, with a visual representation of the hazard, Hazard Signs increase workplace safety by alerting those on your premises to hazardous conditions, obstacles, or other dangers that are not likely to be life threatening. Risk Assessments should determine where hazards lie in your workplace, and which signs are required.  

What are the 9 Hazard Symbols? 

The 9 Hazard Symbols recognised by COSHH are pictograms that illustrate common sources of danger. They include indications for: long-term health hazards such as carcinogens, explosive hazards, flammable substances, oxidising agents, corrosive substances, risks to the environment, compressed gas, the skull and crossbones to indicate toxins or danger, and the exclamation mark used as a generic warning sign.

Types of Hazard Signs 

All workplaces have a variety of hazards that staff, contractors, and visitors need to be made aware of. Simple Trip Hazard Signs should be used to indicate any object or situation that cannot be removed and is likely to cause a risk of tripping or falling. Electrical Hazard Signs are required where there is a risk of electric shock, such as overhead cables, high voltage cables, mains switches, live terminals or electric fences. Fire Hazard Signs should be in place to highlight flammable substances or other fire risks. Construction Sites need a wide variety of Hazard Signs.
