Event Safety Sign Standards


safety sign standards

Safety Signage is vital to the success of an event or the operation of an attraction/venue.

Unfortunately, most events overlook, underutilize, or take liberties with the creativity of safety signage at events.

When developing safety signage, most fail to adhere to established standards regarding the development of safety signage.

ANSI Z535 is a safety sign standard that addresses the formats, colors, and symbols for safety signs used in environmental and facility applications.

ANSI has a hazard chart that assists you in determining the level of the hazard (Danger, warning, caution, notice).

Next time, consult the standard and properly inform and warn your staff, patrons and vendors.
