Signage can be an invaluable component in your workplace. Informing staff and visitors alike about what they can and can't do in a certain area, prohibition signs are designed to stop behaviour that is likely to increase the risk of danger. Succinctly showing you what you must not do, they feature the standardised black 'stop' hand pictogram inside a red circle with bold red edging and a red diagonal line running through it. Acting also as a powerful visual reminder for staff to follow the correct procedures in line with your workplace health and safety policies, they will help to keep areas safe, particularly where areas need to be kept off-limits to general traffic or there is a risk of collision, trips or other hazards. They may also be useful to show where a fire escape route is not currently accessible, helping to direct people quickly in the event of an emergency. As the sign can be read instantly both visually and textually, it can be quickly understood by anyone in its field of vision.
The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 state that prohibition signs must be used to stop certain behaviour and restrict access to certain areas, as appropriate, helping to maintain a safe and secure workplace where everyone knows what is expected. Choose from different sizes (100 x 250mm, 210 x 148mm (A5), 297 x 210mm (A4), 400 x 300mm, 420 x 297mm (A3) or 594 x 420mm (A2)) so you can pick the right sign to fit the surface area of the wall you want it to attach to as well as the level of visual prominence you want it to have in your working environment. The sign can also be made from three different materials (polypropylene rigid plastic, self-adhesive rigid plastic or self-adhesive vinyl) to suit the needs of your workplace and your preferred method of fixing.
As part of your health and safety policies and workplace signage, you may want to look at implementing other restrictive access or behaviour signs. We stock a wide range of different prohibition signs so you can put the right signage in place for your business.
