Q.Which OSHA standard applies to machine guarding?
The OSHA requirements related to machinery and machine guarding are provided in 1910 Subpart O, with the general requirements for all machines detailed in 1910.212. This standard covers types of guarding and how specific machines and work areas should be guarded.
Q.How do I select the correct header for my machine guarding signs?
The different machine guarding sign headers correspond to the hazard severity that the marked machines represent. While the “DANGER” header signifies a hazardous situation that, if not avoided, will result in death or severe injury; the “WARNING” header is for similar cases where death or severe injury is possible, though not certain.
When there is a possibility of minor or moderate injury if a hazard is not avoided, use safety signs with the “CAUTION” header. Signs with “NOTICE” headers communicate important information that is not particularly hazard-related, and those with “SAFETY FIRST” headers convey instructions or procedures related to safe work practices.
Q.What material options are available for machine guarding signs?
We offer machine guarding signs in a variety of materials to suit different applications and requirements. You may explore laminated labels that feature strong adhesive backing or rigid plastic and aluminum signs that come with pre-cleared mounting holes for quick installation. Machine guarding labels and signs are offered in the reflective format to increase safety with extra visibility.
Q.Why are bilingual machine guard signs used?
Bilingual machine guard signs play a crucial role in bridging any language barrier from a diverse workforce. These signs convey the same safety message in two languages to ensure it reaches a broader audience. We offer bilingual machine guard signs in OSHA-compliant designs in different headers, sizes, and materials.
Q.Is it possible to get a machine guarding sign in Spanish?
Yes, it is. In addition to offering bilingual signs in English and Spanish, we also provide the option to switch your sign language from English to Spanish. This option, titled “Hola - Spanish'', is visible on the product page of most of our stock signs, under the sign image on the left side of the page.
Q.Will I get a special discount if I order machine guarding signs in bulk?

This quantity-based discount is applicable on items of the same design, size, material, color, and print and is directly proportional to the order quantity. You may see the discount applicable for your order on the individual product page by clicking on the “View all quantity-based discounts” option visible under the “Select Material” box.
