Safety Signs Have Saved Lives

Posted by Fay Bromilow on

External LED displays could help with the safety record of your business and that of the general public.

Since the introduction of the Safety Signs and Signals Regulations in 1996, there has been a downward trend in the number of fatal work-related injuries. In 1996 there were 0.9 fatal injuries per every 100,000 workers, in 2017 the figure is 0.4, according to a new data from the Health and Safety Executive.

The majority of accidents happened in the construction and agricultural industries respectively and the most common cause of death for workers is being hit by a vehicle or falling from a height.

Photolumiescent and LED signage is frequently used in these signs as they are clear both night and day and are also environmentally friendly due to their low energy usage.

Danny Adamson, Managing Director at Stocksigns Group said, “Photoluminescent signs do not require electrical illumination. In the event of emergency situations, such as power cuts, structural shock and falling debris, they are more reliable than electrical signs and help guide people to safety. 

Signs that have been developed over the past two decades to improve the safety of buildings and workplaces include signs that guide the way out of buildings in the case of a fire, signs that alert people to a danger and signs that provide traffic information to road users.

Over the years we have provided bespoke solutions to a range of different businesses to help them maximise their potential
