Prohibitory Signs

Enforce rules with Visual Prohibition Signs

Custom Prohibitory Signs Hunter Valley & Maitland

At HIE Signs, we understand that each workplace has a unique set of prohibitions which employees must abide by. These signs are known as prohibitory signs. Workplaces have an obligation under Health & Safety Legislation to use prohibitory signs to enforce rules and regulations within the workplace.

Prohibitory signs in the workplace are deployed in the area to ensure the safety of workers and visitors, which allow them to see what actions and products are banned, barred, illegal contraband, illicit or restricted. The prohibitory signs we sell are used to advise what is not allowed in a business.

Prohibitory Signs Custom Designed For Your Business

Prohibitory Signs are aimed to help employees know what they can not bring onto their workplace. Such examples include what is taboo, vetoed, proscribed or crooked. Our prohibitory signs can come in a multitude of designs, so they are easily identifiable in any environment.

The symbols and pictograms are illustrated in white with a red cross which is nationally recognised and easily understood. Any text is made in black on a white background.

Industrial safety prohibitory signs increase your workplaces safety. They are manufactured at HIE Signs, located in the Hunter Valley, and we are proud to help you create a safe and secure working environment.

We can also produce these prohibitory signs in different colours with reflective or non-reflective finishes. The only limit to our signage is your imagination.

Prohibitory signs also help you distinguish what is closed down, not allowed, not approved, off limits, out of bounds, out of line or shady. These are all important to ensure your workplace is safe and in line with WHS regulations.
