Where should safety signs be posted?

Workplace safety signs should be set up for the best possible viewing. They must be conspicuously posted in a non distracting manner for examination by anyone approaching the hazardous area. Here are a few other safety sign posting tips:

  • Place safety signs in the workplace about every 40 feet.
  • Safety signs should be posted in the access points of controlled or restricted areas.
  • The number of signs and there placement will depend on the extent of the danger.
  • Safety symbols within the sign should be simple and easy to learn and recognize.
