The Health and Safety (Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996
The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 (the Safety Signs Regulations) implement European Council Directive 92/58/EEC on minimum requirements for the provision of safety signs at work. This guidance is aimed at helping employers meet their responsibilities under these Regulations.
Our entire range of safety signs adhere to the safety colour regulations. This ensures that certain colours represent specific meanings.
The Health and Safety Sign Regulations 1996 require employers to display safety signage where there is a risk to the health and safety that cannot be avoided or controlled. Safety signs are not a substitute for other methods of controlling risks such as engineering controls and safe work systems.
They apply to all workplaces and to all activities where people are employed, but exclude signs used in connection with transport or the supply and marketing of dangerous substances, products and equipment.
These regulations also mention that the use of road traffic signs in the workplace is needed to regulate road traffic.
BS5499-2 Fire safety signs, notices and graphic symbols is the standard for fire safety signs. Our range of Fire Safety Signs comply with BS5499-2 and where necessary, they also comply with EN ISO 7010:2012. In general, these regulations will not require any changes where existing fire safety signs containing symbols comply.
