An absolute necessity for any business, safety signs keep employees and customers alike informed of the risk of being in certain areas. Whether it’s a warning sign to indicate a high-voltage line or a traffic sign showing road work, safety signs help avoid accidents of all kinds.
Crucial in any work environment, the purpose is to prevent injury and ensure staff and visitors are well aware of the possible dangers and hazards ahead in certain situations and/or environments. In simple terms, the OHS Act places a legal obligation on employers to find out what could go wrong and then make sure it doesn't. This means that appropriate signs must be used throughout the workplace. Without signs, many employees would lack the necessary direction in times of crisis, and employers might find themselves in significant legal difficulties if any accidents were to arise as a result.
