Attract attention and remind staff and visitors that drinking water from certain sources is not allowed with these eye-catching, bold and prominent signs. Designed to help you comply with the Health & Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996, they fit requirements for prohibition signs that must be displayed in areas where access is restricted or certain behaviour is prohibited for safety reasons.
To fit the regulations, all prohibition signs must have a black pictogram - in this case, the universally recognised symbol for drinks - encircled by a red band and bisected by a red diagonal bar, and the red text describing the symbol must take up around a third of the sign. These ready-made signs help you keep your staff safe with minimum hassle.
Universally applicable, you can attach them to any surface to ensure maximum visibility in your workplace. Choose from eight different sizes (100 x 75mm, 100 x 250mm, 150 x 125mm, A5, A4, 300 x 250mm, 400 x 300mm or A3) and three different materials (polypropylene rigid plastic, self-adhesive rigid plastic or self-adhesive vinyl) so you can tailor the type of sign to the surface and area you want it to adhere to, as well as how prominent you need it to be.
Bright and bold, these signs are ideal for any workplace with water that may not be suitable for drinking, including outdoor or garage taps or industrial water sources where the water may be supplied from tanks or be less filtered than standard kitchen taps. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use when they are applied to dry, clean, smooth surfaces, they're quick and easy to position without any need for fixings or additional adhesives and are durable enough to withstand the elements or hot or cold working environments.
To help you highlight other workplace risks, we also stock a wide range of 'do not' signs, including a value pack of six universal 'do not drink' signs, 'do not operate' and 'do not use mobile phones' signs.
