Mandatory and prohibition signs
Without the prohibition signs, everyday work would not only be more dangerous for employees, but also for the company property. That's why we offer you round safety signs for this purpose. They complement a tidy workplace setup according to HSE guidelines.
What we should do and what we are forbidden to do – instruction and prohibition signs
What dangers lurk in which places in your company? So that you and all employees in your company always are aware of this - even if they are not in their familiar environment - there are mandatory signs and prohibitory signs. They mark danger zones and safety risks and thus prevent accidents that can happen quickly due to either ignorance or carelessness. No wonder, then, that safety signs are prescribed in L64 -Safety signs and signals - and in compliance with the European standard DIN EN ISO 7010 - ASR A1.3.
Why do we warn with the help of mandatory signs and prohibition signs?
Because everyone knows this sign language. No matter whether you are in the UK, Spain or France. The unmistakably designed signs speak their own language. This is a particularly important fact for companies with locations worldwide. In addition to fire protection signs and emergency escape signs, hazard signs as well as mandatory and prohibition signs are therefore indispensable.
When putting up the signs, the distance to the workplace or the recognition range plays an important role. Certain mandatory notices and warnings must be affixed at fixed intervals to ensure that the information on them is immediately recognisable from all points of view.
What is the difference between mandatory and prohibition signs?
While mandatory signs show how to protect yourself in a dangerous situation, whereas, prohibition signs prohibit certain actions that can cause dangerous situations.
Examples of mandatory signs: Helmet, antistatic shoes, wear eye protection, give acoustic signal, use handrail
Examples of prohibition signs: Parking and storage prohibited, climbing prohibited for unauthorized persons, pushing prohibited, no smoking
While mandatory signs are blue and white, prohibition signs can be recognised by their signal red colour. Both sign types are round.
