Why it is crucial in the workspace.
Just like any business needs proper facilities for the smooth running of day to day activities.
It also needs to adhere to the safety requirements incase of an emergency.
That is where Safety Signs come in.
But do you need to have safety signs in your establishment?
According to SANS 1186-1:2015 businesses, small, medium and large, should have safety signs in place. These signs are usually SABS approved and are made with materials and installed/fixed correctly to comply with SABS requirements.
Safety Signage has one main reason: To communicate mainly through pictures and logos as to be understood by any individual, irrespective of their language ability, to understand dangerous locations and where to go in emergencies.
