When Safety Signs and Signals are necessary?

The Health and Safety Signage (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996, require employers to ensure that safety signs are provided (or are in place) and maintained in circumstances where there is a significant risk to health and safety that has not been removed or controlled by other methods.

This is only appropriate where use of a sign can further reduce the risk.

The other methods may include engineering controls or safe systems of work and may be required under other relevant legislation. Safety signs are not a substitute for those other methods of control.

Signs must be clear, legible and easily understandable, and should be used to identify actions that are prohibited, safeguards that must be followed, warning of a hazard  and to direct towards fire exits/equipment or first-aid equipment.

However, safety signs and signals are unnecessary if they do not help reduce the risk or if the risk is not significant and you should avoid using too many signs which may cause confusion.
