Health & Safety Refresher: PPE Signage

 Health & Safety Refresher: PPE Signage
20/01/2020

PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is a vital part of working on a construction site, quarry, or in a potentially hazardous area. Even though the cause of the issue and preventing if necessary takes priority, if there is even a slight risk of injury or damage to health on a site, workers must be informed about the importance of PPE and when to use it.

PPE signage can be crucial to ensuring that workers are protected from falling objects, slips and hazardous chemicals. Signage can simply remind the necessary people to consider PPE if there is any risk to their health onsite. Not only can lack of protection equipment increase risk dramatically and potentially cause injury, but it can also create a lot of legal issues for the business owner/responsible person.

With Christmas and New Years having passed, it can be easy to slip back into bad habits during January. However, this can also be a great opportunity to refresh your health and safety and start the new year on the right foot. This can help to minimise risk and potential stress later in the year. Particularly during the remaining cold winter months, it’s very important to provide as safe a working environment for employees as you can, meaning safety signage is essential. Below are some examples of Stocksigns’ wide range of PPE signage:

Site Safety Boards These are a great way to contain all of your PPE rules/instructions in one place. This makes it more convenient for site users and easier to enforce safety. Site Safety Boards can include warning, hazard, prohibition and PPE signs.

Regulations Signs This can be a great reminder to both site users and the public of the legal ramifications of not using the correct PPE and taking the necessary steps to stay safe onsite.

Photoluminescent Signs Sometimes, conditions or lighting onsite can be poor, meaning you’ll need a sign with its own light source. Photoluminescent material will charge in ambient light, and glow whenever visibility is poor. This keeps the sign visible at all times to maximise safety.

Prohibition PPE Signs These can help to stop anyone entering site who is not wearing the correct PPE. Additionally they can act as a reminder for site users to check their equipment

Stocksigns offer a wide range of PPE signs to help you protect yourself, and others onsite. You can check out the range here. If you’d prefer to have a browse of our products, you can view the shop here.
