The importance of proper spill and safety signage

Safety signs in the workplace are not only a legal requirement; they are absolutely vital in providing the essential information needed to protect employees, visitors and property.

There are many different types of safety signs you may need to use in your business, particularly if you keep spill control equipment on site. You need to check which signs you are legally required to have in order to adhere to health and safety standards.

For example, you may need to have:

Spill kit signage – This enables anyone, whether they work for you or not, to use the spill kit in the event of an emergency. Detailed instructions for specific types of leaks and spills ensure that the emergency spill kit is used properly to avert disaster or prevent damage.

Wet floor signs – These signs are essential in most businesses, for the simple reason that they warn people of a spill and prevent injuries caused by slips and falls.

Surface water drain signs – These identification signs make clear what type of drain it is and how it should be used; i.e. only rainwater should be poured down surface water drains.
