What safety signs does a business need?

A business owner has a responsibility to work to keep employees safe and out of harm's way, and that can often be done with the use of safety signs. These can instruct employees, alert them to dangers and raise general awareness regarding the hazards of the workplace. All of that can cut down on accidents.

So, what signs does the company need to have? A few examples include:

  • PPE Signs: These tell workers that they must wear personal protective equipment whenever they go beyond a certain point.
  • Exit Signs: These should contain battery backups so that they still work during a fire, a power failure or any other disaster in which workers will be attempting to find the exits quickly.
  • Flammable Danger Signs: Any time there is a serious fire hazard, workers must be well-aware that it exists and they must know what precautions to take.
  • Forklift and Machine Warning Signs: Workers must be aware that they are working around heavy machinery and vehicles so that they pay attention and avoid accidents.
  • Biohazard Signs: This won't apply to every company, naturally, but any company that deals with toxic materials must warn workers whenever they may be exposed to them.
  • Slip and Fall Warning Signs: These should be used in areas with wet floors, places where spills are common and on stairways, balconies and catwalks. Falls are one of the main causes of workplace injuries every single year.

If you are hurt on the job, and especially if no warning signs were put up, make sure you know all of your rights to workers' compensation.
