OSHA headers explained
Posted on January 2, 2013 by Sydney Smith
In order to stay compliant, facilities and worksites must properly display OSHA header signs to communicate to workers the dangers they could face.
However, how do you know what type of sign is appropriate for each situation?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) ensures workers have a safe and healthful working environment by setting and enforcing standards, as well as providing training, education and assistance to worksites across the United States.
OSHA safety rules dictate that certain situations require the posting of specific signs to communicate to workers not only a particular safety message, but also to tell them of the potential severity of their task.
In order to select the appropriate OSHA Warning Sign, you must first consider the potential hazards you should warn your employees of. Once you know this, simply select the appropriate header and safety message. If you can’t find your wording in stock, consider creating a custom OSHA sign.
