Safety signs are found almost everywhere; in schools, hospitals, offices, shopping centres, hotels, conference facilities and construction sites. Clear signs convey an unambiguous and easily understood message. Internationally recognised symbols, such as the ‘fire exit running man’ help to support a sign’s instruction.
Safety signage can also be used to warn of potential hazards, indicate the location of the nearest emergency exit, first aid facility or fire fighting equipment. Effective safety signage can restrict access, ensure that personal protective equipment is worn, or convey that fire exit doors should be kept clear.
