Workplace and Safety Signs

22 Oct 2012

Category: Articles, Company News

FPS has expanded its consumables range to include a range of essential workplace and safety signs, covering the following areas:

  • Fire safety signs
  • First aid signs
  • Danger signs
  • General office signs

Within in this range you’ll find a mixture of self-adhesive vinyl and rigid plastic (foamex) signs, suitable for a variety of workplace environments. And of course, every sign within the range is compliant with the relevant workplace signage and safety legislation including the new European Council Directive (92/58/EEC) which lays down the minimum requirements for the provision of safety signs at work.

Know the law:

  • The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 require employers to ensure that safety signs are provided (or are in place) and maintained in circumstances where risks to health and safety have not been avoided by other means.
  • The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires employers to make an assessment of the risks to health and safety of their employees at work, to identify what measures they need to take to prevent or control these risks.
  • The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 requires all employers to ensure that adequate equipment, facilities and personnel are provided to enable for first aid to be given. This includes visibility of that equipment.
