Health and safety is an issue that can’t be ignored in any workplace and having the right signage on display can go some way towards reducing the likelihood of accidents occurring. Among the wide selection of products we have on offer are electrical signs, which are a great way to highlight electrical danger areas to protect staff, visitors and contractors on site.

Ensure that your electric shock warning signs stay put by using appropriate fixings for those signs that do not have a self-adhesive backing.

Electrical Warning Signs: Buying Guide


If you’re unsure about the electrical signage you need, you may want to check out the guidance on regulations provided by the Health and Safety Executive, which set out what business owners need to do to comply with current regulations. Among other things, it’s important that signs are clear and legible, and are placed where a significant risk to health and safety exists (even though other relevant measures are in place). Signs may indicate restrictions or prohibited actions, safeguards that need to be followed, or general hazards within the workplace that employees and visitors need to be aware of.

Electrical accidents can be a lot more serious than just a minor shock – fires, serious injuries and even fatalities are all possible consequences. Display our electrical signs at appropriate locations to provide a warning to everyone of the potential dangers and to protect them from the risks of electrical accidents.

At Seton, we have a large selection of electrical signs in our safety signs range. Because we are aware of the many different locations where electrical hazards can be found, we provide a number of options. We have signs in different materials, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, as well as tough industrial environments.

What’s more, our signs are designed to be durable so that they can continue to clearly display the appropriate warnings for a considerable time.

All of our electrical signs feature the well-known hazard triangle and the easily recognisable lightning symbol. Some also feature a collapsing person to indicate that the risks are so high that there is a danger of death.

Our range also includes signs with more precise information about the nature of the risk – for example, the number of volts. The nature of the hazard can also be more fully described, with wording such as “live wires” or “battery charging” also featuring on the sign. Some of the signs can also provide other information of appropriate behaviour in, for example, battery charging areas where people are advised to not smoke and to wear protective clothing.

Signs also feature either the wording caution, warning or danger. Caution indicates that if the hazardous situation is not avoided, minor or moderate injury could occur. Warning means that death or serious injury could happen and Danger means that serious injury or even death can occur. The use of Danger signs should be limited to the most extreme situations.

At Seton we also offer other warning signs for other areas that could potentially be hazardous to a worker or visitor.

Custom Electrical Hazard Signs


With so many possibilities of electrical hazards, it would be impossible to design a range to cover every eventuality. While our range is extensive, there may be some further information that you need to convey; which is why we can custom-make a hazard sign for you. It is quick and easy for you to do online using our Creator tool.

Protecting everyone on the premises from electrical hazards is a legal requirement of any business and electrical signs are a cost-effective way to make everyone aware of the potential danger.

Ensuring that all UK and EU laws on this matter are correctly followed can be confusing, but at Seton we make sure that all of our signs and safety equipment fully comply with current legislation. You can shop for your electrical signs with confidence at Seton.

What Legislation Covers Electrical Signs?


The type of signage required by law is covered by the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations of 1996. These regulations cover the application, provision and maintenance of safety signs, and also refer to issues such as instruction and training, stating that employers are required to ensure that employees receive “suitable and sufficient instruction and training” with regard to the meanings of the safety signs within their business premises, and the measures that must be taken in connection with those safety signs.

There are also British Standards and International Standards Regulations in place that cover electrical warning signs in the workplace. BS5378-1 covers the colours and design of safety signs at work, including electrical hazard signs, and ISO 7010 sets a technical standard for graphical hazard symbols on safety signs. Where applicable, all of our signs comply with necessary standards and regulations.
