Safety signs provide a convenient way of giving directions around the facility as well as warnings about hazards involved in specific operations. Specific applications of safety signs include restricting access to a particular work zone, notifying the presence of hazards and providing directions to different areas. Employers might find themselves facing legal charges if accidents were proven to be a result of inadequate or complete lack of safety signs. However, safety signs do not only benefit the employers and employees, they also benefit the general public. A lot of work sites come in close contact with the general public. Take a construction site as an example. Potential hazards may be caused to the general public because of a road excavation project. In such cases, the employer or the contractor must ensure that adequate safety signs are put in place.
