Safety Signs uk for traffic signs

Traffic signs are essentially a daily routine, everyone who drives on the road has to obey the traffic signs. Whether they are exit signs or just general safety signs including speed restrictions, no entry, or general advice on road conditions or weather restrictions like snow and ice. Health and safety is all about keeping people safe, allowing people to go about their daily business as safely as possible whilst taking into account any warning signs they may come across.
Cestrian signs limited and safetysignsuk strive to help keep people safe on a daily basis by producing good quality accurate safety signs that follow the health and safety signs directive from the executive. Any changes which are enforceable by law are cascaded down to all our customers and changes which require action are high lighted.
Exit signs and traffic signs have changed very little over the last few years however health and safety signs, warning signs and fire safety signs and always being updated to bring them in line with the EU directive, this mainly includes using pictorgrammes and creating a sign which can be recognised all across the eu as being a standard which you don’t have to read the language to understand.
The most recent update to the directive is being pushed through in August 2011. This directive includes the updating of the mandatory signs under the health and safety signs banner an example of one of the changes is that the hard hat pictorgramme put be a side profile not a front profile which was previously standard.

New health and safety legislation

From August 2011 the pictorgrames on safety and warning signs have to be in line with the european standard. Hopefully this won’t mean too many changes to waring signs but I think that general health and safety and frie safety and exit signs will be effected to some extent. all our customers will of cause be kept upto date with the new health and safety signs legislation.
