Hazard Signs

The UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends a variety of hazard signs to alert individuals of potential dangers. The HSE bases these signs on the international standard BS EN ISO 7010 to ensure that hazard signs remain consistent and comprehensible across multiple countries.

Among the hazard signs that the HSE suggests, the general hazard sign serves as a warning of any hazard that does not fall under any specific sign. The general hazard sign features a yellow background with a black exclamation point.

While the HSE does not mandate the use of any specific hazard sign, employers must provide adequate safety signs to warn people of potential hazards. For hazard signs to be effective, they must be placed in prominent locations where people are likely to see them. Moreover, the signs must be well-lit, easy to read, and consistent with the international standard BS EN ISO 7010. It is also crucial to use signs that are the appropriate size for the area where they are being displayed, keep them clean, and maintain them in good condition.

In summary, the HSE recommends displaying a variety of hazard signs to warn individuals of potential dangers.
