Safety signage is a staple at myriads of public areas today. Swimming pools are riddled with “no running”, “no diving”, and “no lifeguard on duty” postings. Public buildings display “no smoking” and “fire exit”. Warehouses and construction sites post warnings to people of hazardous materials, forklifts in use, and the need for foot/head/eye/ear protection. Entertainment venues use slippery surface, first aid, and emergency phone signs. If you’re considering what alerts should be present at your venue or business location, consider the following applications when thinking about your upcoming project.
Reasons to Install Safety Signage
There are four primary reasons that businesses implement safety signage. Often, postings will serve more than one purpose, sometimes even helping organizations reach all four goals at once. However, it can be instructive to consider each reason separately as you go about implementing these posts in your business location.
Not Loud, but Not Ignored
In designing effective caution signs, one must strike a balance between familiarity and getting the attention of a target audience. Essentially everybody knows what a “no smoking” sign or slippery surface or fire extinguisher sign look like. They are easily recognizable to the average adult. Yet, you don’t want safety signage that blends into its surroundings so well that it doesn’t get seen at all. In addition, there may be situations in which you want to modify the content of your notices. For such functions, a digital display can be the perfect solution. With a digital, you can change content again and again to fit your needs, but you can also make them attention-grabbing. Contact Us today for a demo of our digital safety signage.
