- Highly visible yellow and black design, for extra effectiveness
- Standard symbol included helps people understand the message
- Conforms with all the relevant safety standards
Low ceilings, protruding features and sudden dips in the overhead level can easily go unnoticed by staff and visitors, which puts them at risk of injuring themselves by colliding with hard surfaces. Displaying this 'caution - mind your head' sign in the area of any such hazards provides a clear warning that people should be on the lookout for danger, which helps ensure they avoid injuries. Just in case, however, it's best to have a first aid kit situated near to any hazards, so that it's easy to access medical supplies if they're needed.
The sign is printed in bright, eye-catching yellow and black, which is the standard colour scheme of caution signs, so it helps people understand that they're in a hazardous area. It also makes the sign more visible, giving workers more time to avoid dangers.
Wherever there's a particularly high risk of head injuries, you should ensure people wear hard hats to protect themselves. The JSP MK1 hard hat is a great value piece of equipment, giving you a cost-effective way to keep a supply of helmets in case they're needed.
This caution sign can form part of a complete system for keeping everyone in your business safe. It conforms to safety sign regulation BS 5499, which makes sure people can interpret signs and symbols easily. Displaying the sign helps you fulfil your obligations under the Health and Safety Regulations 1996, and it makes an excellent partner for our 'wear hard hats' sign to form a more comprehensive warning.
You can choose the size of your sign from a selection of five options, which gives you a lot of versatility. It's also available in either rigid plastic or vinyl, with the latter option being flexible and suited to curved surfaces as well as flat areas. Both materials are durable, weather-resistant and suitable for use indoors or outside.
For easier fixing, you can opt to have the sign with a self-adhesive backing. This lets you put it in place immediately, and means you don't need any extra adhesives to mount it firmly.
