Importance of Safety Signs

Date Posted:29 September 2015 

Safety signs are necessary in any workplace.

The Australian Standard 1319 sets the design standard for safety in the workplace. To be effective, everyone must have a clear understanding of the sign’s message and the potential consequences for failing to carry out the given message.

At shsProducts we have a wide variety of First Aid Signage available to purchase. Below are some of the signs we sell linked with the AS1319 classification and use.
