Safety identification and safety signs
Clear communication regarding hazards and rules of conduct serves as the basis for a safe working environment. Chemical parks, power stations, production plants and business premises must therefore be equipped with systematic labelling for emergency situations and day-to-day operations alike. Safety identification includes labelling of escape routes and fire protection equipment, identifying hazardous areas and how to conduct oneself in them, marking obstacles and potential hazards and putting up escape and rescue plans.
To successfully implement a safe working environment, the right planning, labelling selection and proper on-site installation is key. We offer all of this as a complete package. In our work, we focus on transmitting clear-cut messages. That‘s why dimensions, shape, colour, design, distance of observation and luminescence of the labels are based on prescribed standards and decades of experience. In collaborating with you, we aim to provide a sustainable solution for reliable safety identification, thus avoiding accidents, injuries and damage. Thanks to our in-house production, we can meet your requirements; what’s more is that if you like, we can efficiently carry out (almost) all the relevant work for you on your premises.
Compulsory labelling and its implementation – regulations, standards and laws
Occupational safety identification is globally ubiquitous, compulsory by law, and in Germany derived from the German Arbeitsschutzgesetz (“Occupational Health and Safety Act”). In the Arbeitsstättenverord-nung (“Workplaces Ordinance”), labelling with signs is specifically listed as an integral part of the legal measures. The technical rule for workplaces ASR A1.3 – “Safety and health protection labelling” – takes this measure and specifies its exact implementation in detail. This technical rule defines how our signs look in the plant, in the building or on the premises, as well as how to install them to ensure clear recognisability for all employees and visitors.
There are also international regulations and standards for safety identification. The current safety signs in Germany have already been adapted to the international standard ISO 7010. For this reason, we have grouped our signs for you in the following chapter and differentia-ted between the legally required signs from ASR A1.3 and the meaningful signs of the respective standard.
