Use signs to communicate effectively and efficiently in your workplace.
You need signs to guide your workers as they go about their daily lives and warn them of workplace hazards. But aside from that, you should also use signs to meet legal requirements. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) mandates the proper design, application, and use of safety signs as outlined in Specifications for Accident Prevention Signs and Tags (1910.145).
According to 1910.145, signs must be free from sharp edges, so stick to round or blunt corners. You should also follow the color standards, such as red, black and white for danger signs and yellow background with black letters for caution signs. OSHA requires that signs be visible to employees at all times.
