Employers have a Duty of Care to warn employees and visitors of risks that may occur at the workplace. Danger signs are an indication of Danger of Death which could be caused by machinery, hazardous substance, reversing vehicles. Warning safety signs are a warning of injury which may be from a fragile roof or a slippery surface. For lower level of risk go to our Caution Signs. The Health and Safety Executive state 'The types of warning signs required to be in place within the designated zones should be appropriate for the hazard, ie mandatory, warning, caution, electronic, physical, intrinsically safe, chemical/heat resistant'. Warning Signs come in the shape of a a black band in the shape of an equilateral triangle and are required by the Health and Safety Regulations 1996. Rigid Plastic Danger Signs are suitable for all weather for outside use. For Signs suitable for indoor use self adhesive vinyl is preferable.
