6 Categories Of Safety Signs

Did you know that in Australia under AS1319 all safety signs are sorted into 6 important categories? All signs are carefully designed to alert people on a universal level, with recognisable symbols, bold colours and clear lettering.

🚫 Prohibition Signs – noticed by its infamous red circle with a line through. These signs are used to help send immediate caution to people, letting them know they CAN’T DO something.

🔵 Mandatory Signs – recognised by a white symbol/picture within a blue circle on a white background. Mandatory signs are exactly that! These signs must be displayed as a reminder, letting those in the area know they MUST DO something.

💀 Danger Signs – warning people about potentially life-threatening hazards or hazardous conditions is a serious matter! You need to use a Danger Sign in order to let everyone know that these hazards can KILL YOU.

⚠️ Warning Signs – universally recognised by its yellow background and black triangle, warning signs are used when something within the area may HURT YOU.

Emergency Information Signs – these signs are something that need to be used for when/if something goes wrong! Allowing people to find the location of, or directions to, emergency related facilities. SAFETY FIRST!

🔥 Fire Signs – incase of a fire emergency, these bright red signs are bold in colour and easy to see, making them perfect for locating nearby FIRE EQUIPMENT.

Manufacturers and importers in most jurisdictions are required to label their hazardous chemicals in accordance with the international system used to classify and communicate chemical hazards.

Safe Work Australia CEO Michelle Baxter said a five-year transitional period gave chemical manufacturers and importers time to reclassify chemicals and implement necessary changes to labels and safety data sheets.

“To ease the burden on suppliers to re-label existing chemical stock, chemicals manufactured or imported before 1 January 2017 can continue to be supplied without needing to meet the new labelling requirements,” said Ms. Baxter.

She reminded chemical suppliers, manufacturers and employers with employees handling hazardous chemicals to contact their work health and safety regulator for more information on how GHS affects their work.

“WHS Regulators can provide on-the-ground advice, guidance, and information regarding, classifying, labelling and handling chemicals to ensure your workplace remains safe.”
