Sign labels that can be printed with laser or ink jet printers in minutes and removed cleanly from most surfaces serve to notify, instruct, and even protect personnel in just about every area in a facility
August 2, 2018
Throughout industrial plants and warehouses, signs are posted virtually everywhere from the production floor and inside the warehouse to staff offices, conference rooms and even the break room. In most facilities, there is virtually no room or area spared from these notifications, instructions or warnings, whether informal or mandated by law.
Do your safety and health efforts have a sufficient number of realists – or potential pessimists – who know the truth on the ground, and will call it as they see it to more distant and pre-occupied higher-ups?
Did you know the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) adopted a new symbol meaning “to warn of an arc flash”?
Many workers die each year as a result of arc flash explosion accidents – and most are killed because they failed to wear proper PPE.
OSHA’s standard 1910.145(a)(1) covers the use of signs or symbols that warn of and define specific hazards that could harm workers or the public, or both, or to property damage. These specifications are intended to cover all safety signs except those designed for streets, highways, and railroads.
