Part 2 - Warning Signs

May 18, 2014 1 min read 0 Comments

Warning SignsWarning signs, like Danger Signs, are a member of the Hazard Signs classification.. Warning signs are designed to warn of a hazard or hazardous condition that is NOT likely to be life-threatening.

In earlier editions of the standard (AS1319) the term "Caution" was used. It has been replaced by the term "Warning" but both terms are now regarded as being interchangeable.

4.2.3 Regulatory and hazard signs.
Regulatory and hazard signs should be so sited in
relation to a particular hazard as to allow a person ample time after first viewing the sign
to heed the warning. This distance will vary, e.g. signs warning against the touching of
switches or other electrical equipment should be placed close to the equipment, whereas
signs used in plant yards or on construction work should be placed sufficiently in advance
of the hazard to permit the warning to be perceived before the hazard is reached.

Australian Safety Signs have taken all possible care whilst designing our Warning Signs. Safety Officers, Education Departments and other Government Bureaus and Sign manufacturing professionals have also taken advantage of our Professional Danger Sign Vector Art.
