Pedestrian Warning Signs should be used when there is a risk of drivers – or those operating other vehicles or machinery – encountering pedestrians on the worksite. Caution Pedestrians Signs or Caution Pedestrians Crossing Signs are an effective means of keeping both parties safe. Pedestrian warning signs play a critical part in protecting the safety of those visiting and working on site and should be displayed prominently to ensure that their presence is effective. Our range of Sign Fixings will ensure that your signage is securely affixed and displayed in easily visible locations.

Displaying Pedestrian Routes Signage to illustrate appropriate walkways for pedestrians is another useful option to keep pedestrians and vehicles safely segregated.

Pedestrian Hazard Warning Signs: Buying Guide


If any member of the public or other pedestrian is likely to set foot on your premises, it is important to protect them from the risk of injury from vehicles. This can be achieved by mounting Pedestrian Hazard Warning Signs in areas of danger, where they can warn both pedestrians and drivers of any potential hazard, for example, a Pedestrians Look Both Ways Sign to alert pedestrians to potential dangers before crossing.

Warn those travelling on foot of the presence of vehicles and provide them with clear directional signage to the safest route. Signs that inform pedestrians, and signposted pedestrian routes aren’t exclusively useful to your visitors – they can also help you by reducing accidents and by providing a visitor-friendly experience.

Health and Safety legislation advises that employers and those with responsibility for the control of workplaces, sites and premises should not only display relevant, compliant signage to safeguard pedestrians, but that they should also provide them with designated pedestrian walkways. These areas should be located at a safe distance from any hazardous situations (such as machinery, moving parts or forklift trucks) and remain well-lit and free from obstruction at all times. Particularly hazardous areas should be completely partitioned off and visibly signposted with appropriate safety warnings.

Safety signs are not the only way of keeping pedestrians safe. The wearing of High Visibility Clothing means that employees, drivers or warehouse operatives stand out and remain visible at all times, acting as a further warning to those navigating routes around your premises.

Where applicable, pedestrian walkways should have permanent Protection Barriers to further protect pedestrians from vehicles and/or machinery.

All employees and/or contractors should abide by your company’s health and safety policies at all times and keep a respectful distance from pedestrians. Forklift trucks should be driven slowly, paying special attention to blind spots, slopes and tight corners. Caution Pedestrians/Sound Horn/10mph Signs should be used to advise forklift drivers to sound their horn at intersections or at times when they are uncertain if a pedestrian has seen them approaching.

It is also best practice to avoid driving forklift trucks or operating dangerous machinery near areas, or in particular time slots, where pedestrian traffic is likely to be higher than usual, for example, near entrances or exits to the building, clock-in stations, staff areas or during lunchtime.

Our wide range of Pedestrian Caution Signs will help to make your premises a safer place for all. Signs are available in a variety of sizes and materials, and with different messages to suit your needs. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use – see our handy guide for more information on the materials available and their suitability for indoor or outdoor use.

Here at Seton, we also provide other Warning Signs to protect workers and visitors from other potential hazards.

FAQs


What Colour Are Warning Signs?

Warning signs are produced in a number of different colours, including red, blue, yellow, and green, to meet the HSE’s regulations surrounding safety signs and signals. The HSE regulates the appearance of warning signs so that they are instantly recognisable, no matter where you are. All of Seton’s safety signs comply with both UK and EU legislation, including BS EN ISO 7010 and BS 5499.

What Is a Pedestrian? And What Is a Crosswalk?

A pedestrian is anyone who is walking in public. Pedestrians could be walking on sidewalks or crossing the street. A crosswalk is classified as a designated pathway for a pedestrian to cross a street. For more information about the terms involved, you can refer to the Department for Transport’s helpful Manual for Streets.

What Does the Pedestrian Crossing Sign Mean?

The Pedestrian Crossing Sign meaning is very straightforward. Seton’s Caution Pedestrians Crossing Sign and Caution Pedestrians Sign (also available in a 6 pack) are intended to alert drivers to the presence of pedestrians who are trying to cross the road. These pedestrian safety signs are intended to make drivers slow down, drive with caution and awareness, and look out for pedestrians.

What Does a Pedestrian Crossing Sign Look Like?

Pedestrian warning signage can have a number of different appearances but all signs are yellow in colour. Some of Seton’s signs include the Pedestrian Crossing Symbol, which depicts the silhouette of a person walking inside a black triangle.

Seton also produces a number of signs that are designed to warn pedestrians themselves and instruct them to look left, right, or both ways for traffic, such as our Caution Pedestrians Look Both Ways pedestrian walkway sign.

Who Has the Right of Way?

The question of who has right of way is very complex, due to the vast number of different situations in which motorists and pedestrians interact. When deciding where to place your pedestrian walkways signage, it is important to refer to the UK governmental regulations to determine who has the right of way in a given traffic situation. For areas in which you have already determined that pedestrians have the right of way, Seton has a range of signs such as our Warning Pedestrians Have Priority Sign.

Where Should Pedestrian Warning Signs Be Placed?

When deciding where to install your pedestrian zone sign or pedestrians danger signs, you will need to consider the specific needs of the area. When placing signs that warn pedestrians themselves to look in a certain direction before crossing, you will need to make them highly visible to everyone who comes across that pedestrian crosswalk. Similarly, when deciding where to place signs warning motorists of an upcoming pedestrian crossing, you should ensure that the signs are located in such a way that drivers are given warning and can prepare to slow down for the crosswalk.

As always with safety and caution signs, it is important to ensure that they are well maintained and that if any damage occurs due to vegetation, adverse weather or defacement, the signs are suitably cleaned or replaced, so that all drivers receive proper warning.
