One of the main hazards in a workplace that uses machinery is the operation of the machinery. All employees who operate machinery in the workplace should know how to use the machinery safely. Machine signs can make employees aware of when machinery should not be used because it requires essential maintenance. Signs also provide any additional information that may be required to operate it in a safe manner. Machine signs are a highly visible way of informing staff about special care they should take when operating machinery. The signs may be distributed around the workplace as required.
Health and Safety Regulations of 1996 on Safety Signs and Signals stipulates that prohibition signs must be displayed on machinery. Do Not Oil/Clean/Use This Machine Magnetic Sign is a highly visible sign that will protect visitors, staff or the public from any unauthorised use of machinery. The signs are constructed from magnetic material, which means that it is easy to fix the signs to metal surfaces with no additional fixings. The signs conform to ISO 7010 and are durable enough to be used either indoors or outdoors. Signs may also be used to warn operators of precautions they need to take when operating the machinery, such as our Magnetic Vinyl ‘Guards Must Be In Position Before Starting’ Signs, which are blue and white with a universally recognised symbol. The signs are strong and hardwearing and have a magnetic backing, which makes them easy to affix directly to the machine.
