London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 24, 2009 -- It is a legal requirement for instance to display a no-smoking sign at each public entrance to your workplace, if the appropriate sign is not displayed you could be fined up to Â£1000. By the same token The Health and Safety Law Poster (âwhat you should knowâ) is a statutory notice and should be displayed by all employers in a prominent position for all employees.
Health and Safety Signs or Safety signs are covered by legislation and regulated by various standards, the main being covered by The Health and Safety Regulations 1996.
There are many signs with different messages and differently colour coded. With the use of colour in our daily lives, we all tend to associate certain colours with specific meanings. For example in the workplace red indicates danger, orange warning, and yellow caution, green first aid or exit routes, blue safety information.
One or two examples of signage and the importance of the correct message it portrays, for instance a Fire Exit Sign or Emergency Exit Signs must bear either a picture or symbol and is green in colour, this will clearly define that this is a fire or emergency exit door.
