- Mandatory blue and white colours with recognisable pictogram
- Can be used indoors or outdoors
- Quick and simple application
The Health and Safety Signs and Signals regulations of 1996 declared that all mandatory signage must have a blue circular background that contains a white pictogram. These lab coat signs are made to conform with those legal requirements, so that your business can adhere to its duty of care to staff and visitors from the offset. If you are working in a laboratory or health setting, it is important to provide the right personal protective clothing for your staff to wear – and lab coats are a common requirement in many environments. These signs, which clearly display the message ‘lab coats must be worn’, are ideal for placing at appropriate locations around your facility.
The mandatory signs contain a strong message, and are designed to be noticeable from a considerable distance, so that there is no confusion when entering a lab coat area. They are available to purchase in a choice of plastic or vinyl, the former being suitable for outdoor conditions and the latter being more appropriate for locations indoors. Both materials are built to be permanent solutions to your signage needs, so are highly durable and will not crack, erode, fade or peel; the signs are also fully water-resistant and can withstand exposure to any common chemicals. It is easy to fix your signs into place; just use the self-adhesive provided with the vinyl option, or use simple cable ties with the plastic version.
If you need to purchase lab coats for your staff and visitors, try these disposable lab coats, which can be thrown away after use to ensure utmost hygiene. Alternatively, you can have a browse of our chemical resistant clothing and overalls for the right type of lab coat for your environment.
