Health and safety is an issue that’s impossible to ignore and while it seems you can hardly go anywhere without seeing a safety sign of some sort, they do have a vital role to play in communicating workplace information. They can minimise the risk of an accident occurring in your workplace and are an easy and universally understood way to get your message across.
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 apply to most common building, civil engineering and engineering construction work. These regulations also place duties on all those who can contribute to the health and safety of a construction site.
General Information Signs
General information signs communicate useful information to site employees and the public. They are ideally used around buildings, car parks and parks.
Wallcharts and Posters
All employers have a legal obligation to display health & safety procedures to their employees.
Fire Safety Signs
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force on the 1st October 2006. The regulation amends or replaces 118 pieces of legislation, the most significant being the Fire Precautions Act 1971 and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) (Amendment) Regulations 1999. We offer a wide range of fire safety products including Fire Extinguishers, Blankets and Fire Safety Log Books.
Hazard Warning Diamonds, Transportation and Pipeline
The Health and Safety (Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 Part 3 state pipes that transport dangerous substances must be identified with the appropriate danger symbol and the name of the substance. With the most up to date GHS labels (The Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals), we can give your business piece of mind.
Pedestrian and Traffic Control
Law states that road signs used to warn or inform divers and pedestrians in private workplaces must be the same as those used on public roads, where a suitable sign exists. Employers must provide safety signs if there is a significant risk that can't be avoided or controlled in any other way, such as through safe systems of work or engineering controls.
All traffic routes must be suitably indicated where necessary for reasons of health or safety. Signs and markings should comply with the traffic signs regulations.
