Safety Signs

Safety Signs

Without Safety Signs, many employees would lack the necessary direction in times of crisis and employers may find themselves in significant legal difficulties if accidents were to arise as a result.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF SAFETY SIGNS

Safety Signs are crucial in any work environment. The primary importance of displaying Safety Signs is to prevent injury and ensure staff and visitors are well aware of the possible dangers and hazards ahead in certain situations and/or environments. Without signs, many employees would lack the necessary direction in times of crisis, and employers might find themselves in significant legal difficulties if any accidents were to arise as a result.

By ensuring the workplace is sufficiently well signed, you can help protect your staff and visitors to the site, particularly members of the public, against the possible dangers that may be unnoticed - leading to less industrial accidents and reduced risk to employees and passer by's.

At PETRO Industrial, we have the widest range of legends for you to choose from to ensure you can create a safe, well identified facility. Our range of Safety Signs are designed to meet Australian Standard 1319 which outlines specific parameters for safety signs in an occupational environment.
