OSHA provides a hazard-based classification of safety signs and accident prevention tags, as described in the standard 1910.145. These are the main sign types and their uses:
Danger - Immediate danger that warrants special precautions; indicates a major hazard with the possibility of death or serious injury
Caution - Warning against potential hazards or unsafe practices; indicates a minor hazard with a lesser threat of employee injury compared to danger signs
Safety instruction - General safety instructions and suggestions
Biological hazard - Presence of actual or potential biohazard
Warning - Hazard level between danger and caution
Of course, they can be. You may choose your preferred custom OSHA sign template from a range of templates in danger, warning, caution, and notice headers. These templates, available in different materials, sizes, and formats let you add your text and graphic. Spanish and bilingual templates are available as well.
For safety signs to be OSHA-compliant, they need to follow the requirements specified by OSHA. These requirements also govern the colors to be used for each category of the safety sign. For instance, red, black, and white are danger sign colors while yellow and black are caution sign colors.
This is done to create uniformity and to enable easy hazard communication. Hence, OSHA safety sign colors may not be modified.
OSHA signs convey important information and safety practices that play a crucial role in preventing workplace accidents. Bilingual OSHA Safety signs go a step further by ensuring that language doesn’t become a barrier in your safety communication and helps you reach a far greater number of workers/employees than monolingual safety signs.
There is no minimum order for most of our OSHA signs. You may order a single sign or in bulk, as per your requirement. Ordering two or more signs is more economical. For instance, if you are getting one sign for $12.22, you may get three for $11.91 and five for $11.39. Prices vary as per sign.
