Mandatory safety signs

The Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires that employers must display mandatory safety signs in the workplace. The HSE website states that “making the workplace safe includes providing instructions to encourage people to work safely and responsibly”.

Mandatory safety signs are designed to ensure a safer working environment by keeping certain areas free of obstruction, restricting access to certain areas, ensuring protective clothing is worn and potentially hazardous machinery is used correctly.

These signs should be used to indicate actions that must be carried out in order to comply with statutory requirements. For example self-closing fire doors that must be kept closed to comply with the fire risk assessment should be labeled with “FIRE DOOR KEEP SHUT” signs. An area of a construction site where hard hats should be worn should also have appropriate signs at the entry points.

Signs indicating mandatory requirements consist of a blue circle with the pictogram or text in white positioned centrally.
Our signs are available in a range of sizes and materials.
