15 Top Irish Health and Safety Signs
All businesses in Ireland are governed by Health and Safety laws aimed at preventing accidents and injuries in the workplace. On this basis, every business in Ireland needs health and safety signage, yet it is often one of the most overlooked items when kitting out a premises. As every business is different, their needs are often completely unique too. So, without undertaking a full risk analysis or without a complete site survey (we do not recommend ignoring either of these) – we have compiled a list of the top 15 Health and Safety Signs requested across all sectors by our clients here in Ireland.
Before reading, what do you think make the top 5???
*** 15. Vehicle Access Only
There were quite a few signs tied for this spot, but this one pipped it in terms of sales to the Irish market over the last year through the Signs Direct order system. This sign is extremely important in car parks, loading bays and other areas where there may be heavy vehicular traffic or where it is advisable for pedestrians to use an alternative route.
*** 14. Assembly Point
In case of an emergency it is very important to have emergency evacuation plans with designated assembly points. Assembly Point signs are important for making sure everyone is accounted for in the case of an emergency.
*** 13. Slippery Floor
One of the main reasons for insurance claims from the public are from slips and trips. Help to avoid accidents such as these by installing this signage in a prominent location where it is clearly visible to alleviate these accidents. The Caution Floor Slippery When Wet sign can be used all year round, even when the floors are dry to make people aware that it can be a potentially slippery surface.
*** 12. Wear Dust Masks
If your premises has any likelihood of producing or is susceptible to dust – then it is advisable to provide and ensure the proper use of dust masks. Having this sign serves as an important reminder of the importance of these things. At the end of the day, nobody wants to end up with avoidable respiratory conditions!
*** 11. CCTV In Operation
There is a large variety of CCTV signage on our website, but as a category itself they combine to form one of the mainstays of the Signs Direct website. This CCTV In Operation version is the most popular sold throughout Ireland – probably because it does exactly what it says on the tin!
*** 10. Clean As You Go
And we’re into the top ten! I am not sure about you, but one of my main bugbears is when people do not clean up after themselves, right! I personally have found this sign helpful in the kitchen and toilet areas of the offices and warehouse, though we have sold for many other locations as well such as locker rooms and communal areas.
*** 9. Caution: Hot
Water Boilers, Coffee Machines, Cookers, Stoves… The list of potential burn hazards is endless, yet hundreds of people every year fall victim to burns and scalds. Avoid this potential hazard (and costly legal bills) and install one of these signs, available in sticker format also for those hard-to-reach locations.
