OSHA has rules about how you should talk about safety. But such rules do not suggest that you have to employ the same signs as all other companies.
Here are five convincing reasons that show why you should try getting custom caution signs made for your business.
1) Can curb sign fatigue
You might have experienced that when you watch a TV channel with its logo in the corner of your screen, you stop seeing it after a while. The same thing happens with caution signages. Workers see the same signs every day and everywhere they go and get used to them. After some time, they will fail to notice them. You cannot blame them.
While customizing, you can add distinct text, shapes, or colors to your signages, to make them stand out and get your employees’ attention. It helps your signs work effectively and keeps your staff safe.
2) Accurate messaging for the accurate surrounding
Your workplace is not the same as anyone else’s. You might be having heavy machines that possess unique potential threats. They might not fit into the usual categories for signs, such as “Low Headroom” or “High Voltage.” If you try to use the usual caution signs available in the market that isn’t clear or doesn’t show the danger correctly, it could be damaging. By customizing your signs, you can be sure that they will convey the right thing and warn people about the real danger.
Recent research shows that we see between 6,000 and 10,000 ads every day. Your enterprise’s logo and colors build a brand image, which is like an advertisement for your business.
Custom caution signs are a great way to get your name out there. Use your firm’s colors and logo on all signages to keep your company at the forefront.
Your company probably has its own language. You can use certain words, and abbreviations, and even have a few jokes that only the insiders are aware of. Customized safety signs let you include the lingo of your company. It makes it easier for the staff to comprehend the dangers they talk about. Safety is important, but that doesn’t mean that these signs can’t have some individuality.
5) Language needs
It’s quite common these days to have multilingual staff. Make signs in at least two languages so that everyone can understand how to stay safe.
It’s important for you as an employer to know that all of your safety signs can be read and understood by all of your workers. Customizing these signages will help you show them that you too care for the safety of your employees.
