🚫 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!
