General Information Signs: Buying Guide


Providing Essential Signage

Information signs are a useful way to ensure that service users, employees and visitors to your premises are made aware of any issues that may affect them during their visit, as well as helping to clarify what is expected of them while they remain on your premises or within your employ.

Our wide range of information signage can be used to convey a broad spectrum of important messages to workers and members of the public, and can also be useful in reducing the number of face-to-face enquiries staff have to deal with, thus helping to maximise their productivity during the working day.

These signs will clearly display information within your premises. Information signs cover a wide variety of categories – some of which are required by health and safety legislation, while others are simply a matter of courtesy and good working practice.

As well as a wide range of fire safety signs, first aid signs and danger signs, we also have a comprehensive selection of information signs that can help guide employees, customers and visitors around your premises, as well as advising on expected behaviours during their time there.

A Sign for Every Occasion

We offer a wide range of information signage, covering a range of mandatory and optional signage for workplaces and public access areas.

Choose information signs to indicate the direction to and locations of certain services within your space, for example, toilet signs, reception signs, cleaning and washroom facilities signs, kitchen signs, office signs and car park signs. These are available in a range of styles to suit your type of business, with standardised verbal and pictogram signage offered for ease of recognition by all.

Employee information signs are also available to remind employees regarding expected practices within the workplace, such as wash your hands signs, tie long hair back signs and signs that designate what clothing and equipment should be worn when working in a certain area, such as aprons, gloves and detectable plasters in food preparation areas.

Information signs can also be used to promote good business practices. We have a complete range of warehouse signage to encourage employees to display stock in the expected manner and rotate it to reduce wastage, for example.

Business owners and heads of organisations may wish to use office and commercial signs to help keep members of the public informed of practices within the premises for their peace of mind; for example, dry-wipe toilet inspection signs can be used to record working practices and reassure members of the public that these areas are regularly checked and issues arising are swiftly dealt with.

Information signs can, however, be used to prevent issues from occurring in these areas, with sanitary disposal signs, and reminder signs to leave toilets clean after use also available in our range.

Exterior information signs can help to direct people to car parking and building entrances, as well as reminding them to deal with dog mess and dispose of litter responsibly. We also offer a custom information sign service that allows you to tailor the message of your signage to the specific needs of your business.

Information signs and the law

The HSE has issued a series of helpful guidelines to help employers understand the types of signage they are required to provide. It is a legal requirement to use safety signage in the workplace to give adequate warning of any risks or hazards.

Additional regulations have been issued during the coronavirus pandemic, and you can browse a range of ‘COVID-secure’ signage, including social distancing signs, wear a face mask signs, hand sanitisation reminders and more.

Employers are also responsible for installing information signage to remind workers of the need to observe responsible work practices, including efficient recycling and waste management, and maintaining a clutter-free workplace, particularly in high-traffic areas and on fire escape routes.

A comprehensive risk assessment of your worksite will help you determine the volume and type of signage you need to meet your legal responsibilities.

Usage of Information Signs

Information signs can be used to indicate directions and locations and can also be placed in specific areas where you wish to remind people of your expectations and requirements. Also, any area in which you believe the public, or your employees will benefit from additional information to adhere to workplace rules or be wary of environmental considerations. In these cases you will want to take a look at our multi-message signage, which covers many general safety, warning and prohibition messages.

FAQs


What information signs do I need?

Some information signage is mandatory and covered by Health and Safety Regulations, you should familiarise yourself with requirements for fire exit signage, first aid signage and hazard signage before installation.

Other information signage will be dictated by the needs and practice of your business and your own discretion. Every working environment can benefit from some form of information sign, whether it is for something very specific, as is the case with our PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) signs, or simple and effective instructions to help generate behaviours that you wish to foster in the workplace with our general information signs.

Where should information signs be placed?

Signage should be easily visible to all who enter the area, and you may wish to consider placing signs at eye level for both walking and wheelchair using workers and members of the public. Consider the impact you wish the sign to have and the location where the maximum amount of people will see it at any given time.

What do the colours of information signs mean?

Safety signs are required to use standardised colour coding – red, yellow amber, blue or green – according to the specific risk at hand. Information road signs, for example, will stand apart from mandatory signs health and safety. Colour coding regulations are laid out in the HSE’s Safety Signs and Signals guidelines, which are free to download. Seton can also provide fully customisable information signs in your colour of choice.

How big should information signs be?

To select the appropriate sizes, you will need to know exactly where and how your signs are to be used. Information signs on the road, for example, will be larger than mandatory signs in the workplace, to ensure good visibility for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. Seton’s signs come in a number of different sizes, so you will be able to find exactly what you need.

What kind of finishings are best for information safety signs?

Your choice of finishing will depend once again on where and how your signs are going to be used.
Our signs are supplied in a range of finishings, including:

  • Anti-glare

  • Reflective laminate

  • Matte

  • High gloss, satin, or polished

  • Anti-slip

  • Heat-treated compound to seal the sign

  • And more!

If you plan to use signage outdoors, for example, information road signs, you will need to select a finishing such as Durasign, which will protect against everyday stresses such as wind, rain and knocks. A vandal-resistant finish is also available. Reflective laminate is particularly important for use on roads, construction sites or other outdoor areas that may be used after dark. Nite-Glo or Xtra-Glo are recommended for identifying emergency exits and escape routes in the event of a power outage.
