The purpose of these updates is to ensure you stay up to date with any changes in your legal compliance obligations, our updates can also be kept and can be used as evidence that your business is staying up to date with any changes in the legislation, this can be very helpful at audit time.
These regulations apply to all places of work covered by the Health and Safety at work etc Act 1974. The Regulations cover various means of communicating health and safety information.
Safety signs must be in place and maintained, where there is an assessed risk to health and safety that has not been fully mitigated by other methods such as engineering controls or safe systems of work and the sign can further reduce the risk. safety signs are not a substitute for these other methods of control.
Signs must be clear and legible, and should be used to identify actions that are prohibited (eg no access), safeguards that must be followed (eg ear protection must be worn), warning of a hazard (eg corrosive material) and to direct towards fire exits/equipment or first-aid equipment. Avoid using too many signs which may cause confusion.
