You are encouraged to undertake a signage review at your workplace and ensure that signs and labels are fit for purpose.

Health and Safety Awareness Posters

Graham Marshall - Saturday, January 08, 2011

HSE Posters should be part of any Health and Safety Program.

They provide visual memory joggers to employees and contractors who are reminded about hazards, risk assessment tools and the controls available to stay safe at work.

As such, safety, health or environmental awareness posters can be designed with many important messages and form part of your Health and Safety Program.

Safety Awareness posters are a visual reminder and they help re-enforce the health and safety training that employees and contractors receive on a regular basis throughout the year.

Below are some of the areas of the work place where safety awareness posters should be put up.

  • Toilets.  Visitors often have a few spare moments to take in the important safety messages!
  • Hazardous chemicals storage areas. Posters can remind employees how to handle hazardous substances with caution.
  • Stairways.  Focus on Health and Safety Posters that ensure spills are cleaned up carefully anremi folks to use the hand-rails.
  • HSE Notice Boards.
  • Cafeteria.

Putting up safety posters makes a visual presentation about the safety culture of the organization.  To check out our hazard awareness posters, click the "Other Tools" button above.
