- Features universally recognised hazard exclamation symbol
- Flexible vinyl and durable polypropylene varieties available
- Designed to remind people to be cautious around hazardous waste
These signs, which feature the universally recognised 'hazard' symbol and include the text "Danger, hazardous waste storage", are designed to encourage workers and visitors to take extra care around waste which could pose a health and safety risk. In line with Health & Safety (Safety Signs and Signals Regulations) 1996, it is crucial that business owners give a clear indication of potential hazards in order to alleviate accidents. This eye-catching yellow and black sign fulfils these obligations in your premises.
To maximise the safety of those who could be exposed to hazardous waste, we recommend combining this hazard sign with other PPE signage so that people know what safety clothing they should be wearing before accessing the hazardous waste area. This may also deter those who do not have access to the appropriate equipment from taking the risk of entering the dangerous waste area.
You can choose from three different sign materials: rigid plastic with a self-adhesive backing, flexible vinyl with a self-adhesive backing, or rigid polypropylene, which must be installed using extra fixings (not included). The self-adhesive vinyl variety is particularly useful for installation on glass or on curved surfaces such as cylinders, which is handy if you'd like to adhere the sign directly to a waste silo or bin. The self-adhesive rigid plastic variety can offer a little more durability than vinyl if installing on a flat surface, but can only be adhered to smooth walls. Finally, the rigid polypropylene variety offers excellent durability, even outdoors, and is ideal if installing on a rough-textured wall. To avoid having to drill holes into the sign to install it, consider using our SignFix Permanent Adhesive which is weather-resistant and suitable for outdoor use.
