Industries require a lot of safety signage boards. Factories, shop floors, office blocks, malls, hotels, theaters, etc. are places where a large number of people gather. Direction boards are needed to guide these people. Fire evacuation maps are required in case of an emergency. Apart from this there are areas which are restricted or areas where access is given only to only certain people. At times, around certain machinery it is mandatory to put on gear like hard hats, goggles, gloves, etc. Safety signs primarily warn of workplace hazards and instruct employees on the proper precautions to take to avoid injuries.

OSHA Safety Signage
In 2013, OSHA ( Occupational Safety and Health Administration ) updated the safety signs standard. Safety posters were to include pictograms and symbols to convey the message. Messaging and text must include hazard type, consequence and avoidance statements. As per OSHA’s guidelines, safety posters broadly fall under the following categories:
DANGER (red and White): These signs are to used hazardous situations that can result in death or serious injury. This signs must be accompanied by an alert symbol.
- CAUTION (yellow and black): Caution signage is used in a situation that may result in minor or moderate injury. Alert symbol is required only in situations that result in property damage.
- NOTICE (blue and white): These signs are used to communicate company policy.
- EMERGENCY (green and white): Emergency signs identifies safety equipment and safe work practices.
Safety Signs / Posters specifications
At Orchid, we have ready posters for your safety signage requirements. The signs have a easily identifiable symbol or icon on the left accompanied by relevant text on the right. The signs are printed on vinyls, laminated to increase ruggedness and durability. Further, we mount them on 3 mm rigid sunboard. These boards can then be easily pasted / drilled in the work place by the end customers.
If necessary, the boards can be provided in auto glow / night glow options. Night glow safety boards are printed on a special radium vinyl. The vinyl absorbs light in the day or when the lights are switched on. It then emits a highly visible glow at night or when in complete darkness. Auto glow boards are used extensively for showing the Emergency Exit’ location.
Fire Evacuation Maps
Fire evacuation maps are another big requirement that is fulfilled at Orchid. While there cannot be any ready to use standard design for this application, the clients’ architects generally provide the design / layout. We print these maps on vinyl and mount them on 3 mm sunboard. The resulting poster can then be easily pasted or nailed to the walls at the customer’s location.
