warning Sign - Hazardous area - Legislation
Hazardous area signs should be located in/at areas that could be considered a hazard or dangerous. As it is a warning sign its instructions are designed to alert people to the possibility of danger. Warning signs provide safety advice, not orders.
EN7010 are standards that dictate uniform shape, colour and graphical symbol, and in this case the text required on health and safety signs throughout all European countries. They have been tried and tested to ensure safety signs are easily recognised and understood irrespective of language barriers, reading difficulties and poor eye sight. EN7010 also maintains standards of health and safety signage for all industry workers.
BS5499 is the British standard that describes the colour, shape and characteristics for each type of safety sign. This Hazardous area sign complies with this standard, whilst remaining acceptable under EN7010 regulations.
Please be assured that all the symbols on safety signs that we manufacture comply with current legislation.
