Mandatory Action Safety Signs

Custom Mandatory Signs Hunter Valley & Maitland

At HIE Signs, we understand that each workplace has a unique set of challenges and hazards to be faced by employees every day. The Australian government also understands this and has introduced a set of rules and regulations surrounding the need to place certain signs around the workplace to reduce the risk of potential hazards. These signs are known as mandatory signs. Workplaces have an obligation under Health & Safety Legislation to use mandatory signs where practicable to highlight a serious hazard or risk in the workplace.

Mandatory signs in the workplace are deployed in the area to ensure the safety of workers and visitors, which allow them to navigate the working environment autonomously and safely. The mandatory signs are used to advise that an instruction must be carried out. The importance of safety signs in the workplace ensures employees and visitors have a heightened awareness of the processes surrounding them that can be otherwise harmful if the instructions indicated on the mandatory signs were not followed.

Mandatory Signs Designed For Your Business

Mandatory Signs are aimed to heighten employee safety awareness so come in a uniform design that is easily identifiable in any environment. The symbols and pictograms are illustrated in white on a blue circular background which is nationally recognised and easily understood. Any text is made in black on a white background.

Industrial safety mandatory signs are manufactured at HIE Signs and we are proud to help you create a safe and secure working environment. You really can’t go too far with safety.
