Am I required to put up safety signs?

Safety Labels and Signs

This might be overlooked when selecting safety products, but like the well-known “DANGER” sign at the construction site, manufacturers, and employers are required to provide safety labels on machinery and chemical substances, warning employees of the hazards involved.

Substances and machinery should be clearly labeled as described in ANSI Z535.4 - “Product Safety Signs and Labels.” As set out in the standards detailed in “ANSI Z535.4,” safety labels and signs must:

Notify of potential a hazard

Specify the intensity of the hazard

Educate what will happen if encountering the hazard, and

Provide a way to avoid the hazard

Based on this information, do not forget to purchase the appropriate signs and labels.
