The most effective way to communicate possible hazards in the workplace or jobsite is to display safety signs. Protect your workers and avoid costly fines by ensuring your safety sign is visibly noticeable, has a clear and concise message, is printed on the right material, and is placed in the appropriate location. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have specific regulations and have developed several colors, headers and styles set as the national standards. Words like Danger, Caution, Notice, Warning, and Safety are used to identify the severity of the hazard. Each working environment requires an individual sign because of the different types of hazards. Keep your safety message fresh and avoid
'sign blindness', by refreshing the message to improve the visibility of your sign.
