A Guide to OSHA Safety Signs

This guide explains the requirements for safety signs in simple terms so businesses can get the information and signs they need quickly.

Creative Safety Supply, an Oregon-based retailer of safety and lean products, just published “A Guide to OSHA Safety Signs.” This free guide is designed to help safety managers, facility managers and other professionals understand the current safety sign requirements and implement compliant signs.

Safety sign requirements in the United States are based on the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z535 standard, which covers facility safety signs and was last updated in 2011. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) incorporated these updates into its own standards in 2013.

This 15-page guide to safety signs explains the current OSHA standards, specifically covering what’s new and what has changed in recent years. Readers will find visual examples of old signs and new signs so they can see the differences. They’ll learn about signal words, pictograms and message panels. The guide also covers major sign categories such as hazard signs, exit signs and fire equipment signs, as well as tips for sign placement. After reading the guide, users will have a good understanding of the fundamentals of safety sign requirements.

“Keeping up with workplace safety requirements can be time consuming. This guide explains the requirements for safety signs in simple terms so businesses can get the information and signs they need quickly,” Nick Jordan, partner at Creative Safety Supply, said.
