  • Self-adhesive vinyl

  • Easy to position and fix

Made from self-adhesive vinyl, this ‘caution hot’ sign is the most effective way of warning staff and visitors about the potential dangers of hot surfaces, minimising the risk of serious burn injuries. From office kettles, tea urns and hot plates to boilers and engines, work premises often include large numbers of hot surfaces which can scald and cause life-changing injuries.

Burns pose a significant health and safety risk and are one of the most common workplace injuries. The penalties and potential litigation resulting from a failure to warn people of hot surfaces can be severe, which is why business owners have a legal obligation to take precautions, such as clearly displaying warning signs.

This ‘caution hot’ sign from Safetyshop is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, the self-adhesive vinyl meaning it can be easily positioned and applied universally to any clean, dry surface. Its flexibility means it can even be affixed to curved, cylindrical surfaces or other irregular surfaces as required.

The Health and Safety Regulations 1996 mean that hazard signs must be displayed to give people clear warning of potential safety risks in the workplace. As with our ‘high temperature’ signs and other hazard warning signs, this caution hot sign is fully compliant with BS 5499.

Taking all reasonable precautions to prevent serious injury to your employees is of paramount importance, which is why investing in safety signs is critical for any business.
