Flammable Warning Signs: Buying Guide

Materials and gases that are easily flammable present a serious fire risk, and for companies working with or storing these materials, good management of the risk is essential to avoid a fire. Displaying flammable signs in the relevant areas of your business premises alerts everyone to the danger so that they can make sure that their actions do not increase the risk of a fire.

At Seton, we have a wide range of flammable signs with options to suit a variety of different premises. They are available in various options, and there are several materials available, including vinyl, plastic and rubber – see our handy guide to signs materials for more information. What’s more, many are suitable for displaying either inside or outdoors.

Most of our flammable signs feature the hazard warning triangle with the well-known flame symbol inside it. Some also feature further information on the nature of the hazard, for example, the potentially flammable material being stored or used.

To avoid the risk of fire, you may want to remind everyone of the dangers of smoking or naked lights where flammable materials can be found. Our range of multi-message flammable signs also includes options that feature the prohibition sign of a circle and a line crossing the circle with the appropriate symbol and instructions to not smoke, not use naked flames, or both.

By clearly marking the dangerous areas with flammable signs and ensuring that all employees understand the risks of handling or storing flammable materials, you can do a great deal to prevent a fire from starting.

However, even in the best-organised workplaces, accidents can happen. Having a well-rehearsed evacuation procedure, working fire alarms and appropriate fire fighting equipment can prevent a small fire from getting out of hand and protect everyone on the premises from injury in the event of a more serious one.

Many companies worry about falling short of the health and safety laws regarding the signing of areas containing flammable materials. However, by shopping with Seton, one of the UK’s leading retailers of workplace safety equipment, you can feel confident that everything that you purchase will fully comply with all current UK and EU safety legislation.

By identifying the areas that are most at risk in your workplace and clearly labelling them with flammable signs, you have gone some way to reducing the likelihood of fires and the related injuries for your employees.

Here at Seton we also provide other warning signs to protect workers and visitors from other potential hazards.

Flammable Hazard Signs Customised For You

If you are unable to find the flammable sign to suit your needs, then why not create one that will be unique to you and your business? Our unique online Creator tool will enable you to create custom flammable hazard signs in five simple steps.

Why is flammable signage important?

Fire and rescue services in England respond to over 15,000 primary fires a year in non-residential buildings. That’s more than 300 a week. Many workplace fires are minor and do not result in injury. Some are much more serious, causing substantial damage to property and injuries to workers.

However, with the right procedures in place, many of these fires are preventable. Flammable warning signs can be a vital part of your fire prevention strategy, protecting your employees, visitors, stock and buildings.

To help prevent fires in your business, install signs with the flammable hazard symbol in areas where flammable products are stored. You can also display flammable gas signs in areas where gas is used, and flammable hazard signs where chemicals, fuel, or other flammable substances are used or stored.

Choosing flammable signage

It’s important to choose flammable signs that are widely recognised and highly visible. The Health and Safety Executive has produced guidelines regarding the use of pictograph symbols on warning signs, including a clear flammable hazard symbol, which depicts a flame. Here at Seton, many of our warning signs incorporate this flammable symbol, making our signs easy to understand at a glance, even when there may be language or literacy barriers within your workplace.

Choose signs that are bold and eye-catching, and made of a material suitable to where they will be located. Our extensive range of flammable signage includes specific signs such as a flammable gas sign, a flammable liquid sign, diesel fuel signs and flammable LPG signs. We can also help you create customised flammable warning signs, to warn of a specific issue within your workplace, or convey a specific safety message relevant to your premises.

Where should flammable signs be placed?

Flammable signage should be placed anywhere that there is a potential fire hazard. You will need to ascertain where this is, in your business, by carrying out a proper risk assessment. However, as a general guideline, you’ll need warning signs in any area where workers are using flammable chemicals, products, materials, liquids and gases. You will also require them anywhere there is an increased risk of an electrical fire, such as high voltage and battery charging areas.

Employee awareness

Flammable warning signs are an important step to alerting everyone on your premises to potential fire hazards, but they should also be paired with regular and appropriate training for any employees who are exposed to flammable materials or other fire risks. Training should include basic fire safety for everyone, and should cover:

Employee training and awareness, along with the right flammable warning sign, will significantly reduce the likelihood of a fire in the workplace, and help prevent injuries and fatalities if one does occur.
