The Importance of Safety Signs

Danger - Do Not Enter Sign

Do you have a habit of ignoring safety signs? Do not worry if you do, because I am a person who has been guilty of doing the same thing. That has changed since I was at a work site and ignored safety signs for a welding area. I accidentally took a wrong turn at a manufacturing plant not paying attention to the safety signs and was nearly blinded by the welding arcs. In an effort to prevent a similar experience or worse from happening to you, I am explaining the importance of safety signs.

Safety signs provide an initial warning to staff of dangers. Picture the scenario of a new employee on his first day of work at a construction site. The person wanders about unaware of dangers lurking around every corner without any signs to avoid impending dangers. I am confident in stating most of you probably know what I am talking about. It is a miracle there are not more injuries at jobsites.

Not only are safety signs important to protect workers at a jobsite, but also the public passing by dangerous work areas. The reality is in most cases, it is nearly impossible to keep the public completely at bay from sites including road excavations, scaffolding projects, etc. An excellent way to prevent a passerby from being injured is to display proper safety signs to warn people to exercise caution as they pass the site. Safety signs act as a buffer between the public and jobsites keeping everyone safe.

Fire-Use Stairway Sign

Safety signs appropriately placed throughout the workplace have the potential to be significant players in ensuring a healthy and safe workforce. The reality is many injuries could have been prevented by displaying them. You tell me, does this make you want to be mindful of safety signs? I do hope that it does and remember, be safe!
