The Regulations require employers to ensure that safety signs are provided (or are in place) and maintained in circumstances where there is a significant risk to health and safety that has not been removed or controlled by other methods. This is only appropriate where use of a sign can further reduce the risk. The Health & safety signs and signals regulations state that workplace safety signs must be clear and legible, and should be used to identify actions that are prohibited (eg no access), safeguards that must be followed (eg ear protection must be worn), warning of a hazard (eg corrosive material), direct towards fire exits, show people fire safety equipment (eg fire extinguishers), warn of workplace multi-hazards, or show the locations of first-aid equipment (eg emergency eyewash) so by displaying these signs you are complying with the health and safety regulations. For further information regarding Safety signs and signals, the Health and Safety Regulations 1996 guidance on Regulations can be downloaded FREE of charge from the UK Government HSE website.
