Current UK and EU health and safety regulations make it clear that it is the responsibility of an employer to identify, flag and warn against hazards that may be found in the workplace. Having the right signage in place, in combination with the other tools in your health and safety arsenal (proper training, correct and clear labelling, clean and up-to-date equipment, plus well-known procedures and policies, amongst others), could help to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries. It's not inconceivable that some workplaces are more hazardous than most. Where radiation may be a part of your everyday working practices, these radiation symbol signs are mandatory to warn employees and visitors alike of the on-site risks, thereby encouraging them to remain vigilant and adjust their behaviour accordingly.
The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations of 1996 state that hazard signs, including harmful substances signs, must be prominently displayed to warn anyone in the vicinity of a hazard to take the correct precautions, in line with all your other health and safety training and procedures. For the risk of radiation, this may mean donning the right personal protective equipment (PPE), which can also act as a deterrent for those unauthorised staff who may think they can enter an area which they are not equipped for.
Available in a choice of four sizes and three different hard-wearing materials, you can tailor your purchase to the demands of your working environment, including how big the sign needs to be to have the greatest impact.
