The Importance of Safety Signs Customisation

Safety Signs are crucial in any work environment. The primary importance of displaying Safety Signs is to prevent injury and ensure staff and visitors are well aware of the possible dangers and hazards ahead in certain situations and/or environments. Without signs, many employees would lack the necessary direction in times of crisis, and employers might find themselves in significant legal difficulties if any accidents were to arise as a result.

Understand the Australian Standard

Viewing Distance Guide

Follow this easy four-step guide to ensure your safety signs comply with Australian Standard® AS 1319 – 1994 and help everyone return home safely.

1.CONSIDER THE OVERALL POSITIONING
  • Mount your safety sign in a reasonably prominent position, close to the line of sight when standing
  • Place your safety sign against a contrasting background
  • Ensure stacked materials won’t block the sign under any circumstances.
2.MEASURE THE VIEWING DISTANCE
  • The viewing distance is the distance between where the sign will be mounted and where everyone should sight the sign upon entry to the room or site
  • To determine the best sign size for your situation, use the Sign Guide below
  • Measure the viewing distance and apply it to the pictogram and text size below in Step 4

NOTE: This guide is only applicable to Brady Australia manufactured signs due to the design of the artwork.

3.CONSIDER THE LIGHTING CONDITIONS
  • If your sign is unlikely to fall easily into the observer’s line of sight in poor lighting conditions, you must increase the pictogram and text sizes by 50% (see Step 4)
4.SELECT THE RIGHT AND COMPLIANT SIZE SIGNS
  • Australian Standard® AS 1319 – 1994 recommends the following minimum sizes when positioning signs prominently in good lighting
  • Ensure pictogram size is at least 15mm per metre of viewing distance
  • Lowercase text must be 4mm per metre of viewing distance

NOTE: This guide is only applicable to Brady Australia manufactured signs due to the design of the artwork.

Safety signs should be large enough to view without straining the eyes.

Sign Maintenance

Once mounted, chances are you will rarely clean your signs. But to keep them compliant, Australian Standard AS 1319 – 1994 makes it your responsibility to maintain your safety signs, ensuring maximum effectiveness. This means you must keep them clean, well illuminated and in good condition.

Good news – Brady signs are tough, durable and super easy to clean. Simply wipe the surface using a sponge or soft towel with mild detergent and warm water. Then, dry with a clean, dry cloth or chamois. Always use a non-abrasive cleaner, and avoid chemical cleaning products.
