  • Position the sign anywhere with universal fittings
  • Conforms to British safety standards
  • Indicates an immediately hazardous situation

Hazard signs must be displayed by law to warn people to take care because potential hazards exist that could cause injury or loss of life. The Health and Safety (Safety Signs & Signals) Regulations 1996 say that warning signs must be displayed advising people to take precautions when hazards are in the vicinity.

Conforming to British standards BS 5499 and ISO 7010, the warning sign indicates that there's an immediately hazardous situation that could result in serious injury or death if not avoided.

This standard safety sign is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. It can be applied to a smooth, clean, dry surface. Made of self-adhesive vinyl, it's also ideal for curved surfaces, including cylinders. It's easy to apply quickly, requiring no fixings.

The signs are often used in restrooms and bathrooms to warn people about the hazards of hot water. They can also be used in kitchens and cleaning areas. They need to be fixed in a position where they are clearly visible, ideally at eye level.

Scalding is a significant risk for companies in terms of liability issues, as scalding can leave a visible injury that can be shown to have occurred through normal use of the facilities, rather than due to any misbehaviour or abuse. Of course, facilties should be safe in the first instance, but it's also sensible for companies to take extra precautions to show they have made people aware of the potential risk.

Also available are fire assembly point signsthat clearly identify where the fire assembly point is located. The signs also instruct people on the actions to take, should there be a fire. Safetyshop stocks an extensive range of safety signage should you need to safely and adequately place signage around the workplace for multiple reasons.
