what are the four types of safety signage?
Each type of safety sign has a different colour which is standardised according to the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996. The four colours associated with health and safety signage are yellow, red, blue and green. Yellow is for hazards, red indicates prohibition, blue is for mandatory action and green is for emergency exits or first aid.
Yellow safety signs communicate a general hazard/danger and encourage the viewer to take caution. These health and safety signs are yellow/amber with a black icon and/or text and black border.
Red safety signs are used to prohibit dangerous actions or behaviours, or to indicate a specific activity that isn't allowed. These signs will typically include a thick red circle with a central black icon crossed through with another red line.
Green safety signs are used to signal an emergency exit or first-aid services. These signs will feature an informative white icon on a green background. Fire Exits and first aid locations are typical examples.
