Machine Signs: Buying Guide

One of the most important machinery safety signs is the ‘Do not operate’ sign. The image is a simple circle with a line through, but the message could not be clearer. The sign should be placed close to any buttons or switches that turn the machine on, employees will then be fully aware that the particular machine is not in use, be it because it requires repair or because an engineer is working on it.

Maintenance instruction signs ensure that staff members are aware how certain servicing/cleaning tasks should be carried out. ‘Do not oil, clean or use this machine while in motion’ is an important sign, as it will not only help to prevent a worker being injured but could help to prevent damage being caused to a very expensive piece of equipment if it is oiled, cleaned or used whilst in motion.

The sign is available in portrait or landscape format and as well as a self-adhesive option there is a magnetic version – making it easy to put into place and move when necessary.

There is also a useful sign that you can use to remind workers not to remove any guards as doing so could pose a very big risk to them of injury or even death.

For health and safety reasons, it is important that workers and machine operators wear the correct clothing, and a sign reminding them not to wear loose clothing when operating a machine is a must. If clothing did get caught in moving machinery it could cause very serious injury to the wearer

Protective clothing should also be worn to protect machinery operators; for example ear defenders, goggles or gloves.

‘Unauthorised persons not to use this machine’ is an important sign because only those who have the right training and authority should be using equipment that could pose a danger. This is a reminder that without the required authority, the machine should not be used. The health and safety implications of a person using a machine without the right authority could be very serious for any business, so all necessary safety precautions must be taken.

With its magnetic backing, this sign can be placed near the operating panel of a machine so that it can be seen before a person goes to switch it on.
