All you need to know about Danger Safety Signs

Here at Industroquip we are often asked, what do all the different colours, symbols and titles of safety signs mean?  So in this article we look at the Danger titled safety signs in Australian workplaces and what they mean and look like.

Danger Signs have the word 'DANGER' inside a red oval which is inside a black rectangle. Sign text is in black text on a white background.

Danger Signs in Australia warn of hazards and/or hazardous conditions that are likely to be life threatening.


What is a Safety Sign?

A safety sign is one which gives a specific message to those who may be exposed to hazards in the workplace, they may be to prevent accidents, signify health hazards, indicate the location of emergency and safety equipment or to give guidance and instruction in an emergency situation.

The primary importance of displaying safety signs is to prevent injury and ensure visitors and staff alike are well aware of possible hazards and dangers in specific situations or environments.Safety Signs also provide the neccessary direction in times of crisis which helps protect employees and property owners from legal difficulties if an accident was to occur.
