Caution and Hazard Signs
Warning Signs for any IndustryThe Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) requires every business owner to ensure their staff is free from any recognized hazards that may cause serious harm. One of the best ways to mitigate employee risk is to set up hazard signs for everyone to see.
Print signs to remind your employees of the safety and health policies in the workplace. Installing caution signs can mitigate risk, avoid accidents, and help keep things running smoothly.
These safety signs are essential not just for health and manufacturing industries. Look around you when you’re crossing the street or out for a grocery run – signs are everywhere.
You’ll also typically find caution signs installed in public areas accommodate large crowds. These help people where to go, improve traffic flow, and indicate where the parking areas are. Warning signs also keep unauthorized people away from restricted areas.

Create Effective Safety SignsWarning signs work when they get noticed, but they also need to meet OSHA’s guidelines for implementing effective and clear visual communication. Here are some design tips to remember for creating your own warning signs for your business.
Choose the right size. Determine the location of your sign first before starting on the design. This can help you choose the right dimensions and how much content you can include (not to mention save you from a ton of trouble)
Know the right colors to use. OSHA’s color-coding communicates the degree of danger:
- Red signals danger, fire, or an emergency. Use this color to direct people to be alert.
- Orange warns against hazardous areas, dangerous equipment or moving parts.
- Yellow calls attention to physical hazards such as slipping or falling.
- Green is used for broad messages that relate to general safety instructions.
- Blue is typically used for non-hazard signs like directions or general information the public should know.
Use signal words. Signs that start with “Danger” or “Caution” will immediately catch attention. These should be readable from a minimum distance of 5 feet or farther as warranted by the hazard.
Emphasize with symbols and instructions. Both should be clear and concise. Specify how to avoid the hazard like “Wear a hard hat” and use easy-to-understand graphics. It’s more common now to show two languages to reach a wider audience.
