The Importance of Safety Signs Training


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Why are safety signs important?
Safety signs are important in any workplace because they alert us to dangers before we come into contact with them. They prevent many workplace accidents. It is important to be familiar with the most common safety signs and the meanings of their colours, as recognising them quickly at a glance is good for health and safety.
What do the colours on safety signs mean?
UK safety signs usually come in four different colours: red (danger), yellow (warning), green (escape or medical help) and blue (mandatory instruction). They are designed this way to be immediately recognisable to anyone, regardless of the level of their understanding of written instructions. The colours are bright to attract attention and ensure the message gets across.
