Warning / Safety decals along with safety signs have never been more important. Insufficiently designed safety decals can result in accidents thus resulting fines and liability suits. To prevent these errors, industry standards have been developed through the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), which cover the United States.
ANSI decals contain four elements including a signal word panel (NOTICE, CAUTION, WARNING, DANGER), hazard identification, hazard avoidance and the consequence of not avoiding the hazard. General colors can be used to signify the safety; however, they must be in accordance to color and relevancy to the hazard. For example, safety red is relevant to the identification of DANGER and STOP while safety orange is relevant to WARNING and safety yellow is relevant to CAUTION.
We can help you design and produce safety decals that comply with all of the standards and your company identity.
