  1. Our signs do not use the ink specifications found in the ANSI Z535.1-2017, American National Standard for Safety Colors, color chart because OSHA still requires the ANSI Z535.1-2011 color specifications, and ANSI Z535.1-2017 says the colors referenced in ANSI Z535.1-2011, while no longer encouraged by ANSI, are still acceptable under the 2017 consensus standard.
  2. Danger safety signs indicate immediate danger and that special precautions are necessary.
  3. OSHA adopts the ANSI Z535.2-2011, American National Standard for Environmental and Facility Safety Signs, for construction, not general industry. However, an OSHA Letter of Interpretation of general industry 29 CFR 1910.145 says, "Employers are allowed … to comply with the most current consensus standards applicable to their operations, rather than with the OSHA standard in effect at the time of inspection, when the employer’s action provides equal or greater employee protection. So long as the standards used by the employer provide such protection, a violation where the employer is not in compliance with OSHA's standards but is in compliance with the new standards may be considered de minimis and not be cited."
  4. Warning safety signs indicate a hazard that could be serious or deadly if a person does not avoid it. The hazard level is between a danger safety sign and a caution safety sign.
  5. Caution safety signs warn against potential hazards or caution against unsafe practices and indicate a possible hazard against which proper precaution should be taken.
  6. Radiation caution signs indicate a radiation area, high radiation area, airborne radioactivity area, and any area/room where radioactive material is used or stored.
  7. Safety instruction signs are applied where there is a need for general instructions and suggestions relative to safety measures.
  8. Notice signs provide non-hazard related information like company policies for hygiene, housekeeping, and admittance.

† Substrate durability is based upon manufacturer specifications and is not an implied warranty. Performance and durability of sign substrates will depend upon a number of factors including (but not limited to) substrate selection and preparation, compliance with recommended application procedures, sign placement, geographic area, exposure conditions, atmospheric conditions (e.g. fog, snow, rain), surface deposits (e.g. dirt, dew, frost), maintenance and age.
