Signs for the Visually Impaired: Buying Guide

The Importance of Braille Signage

Catering for visually-impaired employees, visitors or members of the public is an important part of creating an inclusive space, and can go a long way to ensuring that your business or organisation is meeting the legal requirements for health and safety signage in a non-discriminatory manner.

In premises where there is a chance that people with visual impairment will be accessing areas, it is important to consider how they will be able to interact with and interpret signage that is intended to ensure compliance with health and safety standards, and incorporating tactile safety signs can be a simple way to do this.

Usually they are signs that can be read manually as well as offering visual instructions to members of the public.

Our range of signs incorporates many of the visual iconography commonly needed within work premises and public spaces, with the addition of raised lettering and symbols for tactile reading and grade 1 Braille instructions so that they can be easily interpreted by those with a visual impairment.

Our Braille and tactile signs also use strong contrasting designs to aid visually impaired workers, visitors and guests in discerning them.

Usage of Braille Signs in the Workplace

Braille and tactile signs should be used in any area where an information or safety sign is required.
Health and safety experts warn against the use of too much signage within any space as this can become confusing, so it is a good idea to incorporate Braille and tactile signs into your initial safety signage plan rather than adding them as an afterthought, as this will create sign clutter and contribute to confusion.

Variety of Tactile Signage

We offer a wide range of Braille and tactile signs to help you keep visually-impaired staff and visitors fully informed while they are on your premises.

We have a selection of access awareness signs with versions in this category that can be interpreted by people who are visually impaired including tactile ‘way in’ and ‘entrance’ signs and Braille ‘no entry’ signs.

There are also many common safety signs available in formats suited for use by staff and visitors with visual impairments. For example, we stock Braille and tactile first aid signs, fire exit signs with tactile and Braille elements incorporated as well as a selection of Braille and tactile fire safety signs including fire extinguisher signs and fire alarm signs.

Our range of signs that cater for people with visual impairments also included some hazard and warning signs with a Braille and tactile element incorporated such as a ‘slippery when wet’ sign for the visually impaired and Braille/tactile ‘mind the step’ sign.

Braille and tactile prohibition signs in the range include a ‘no smoking’ sign for those who are blind or partially sighted and a ‘no admittance’ sign with Braille and tactile elements.

What Braille and tactile safety signs do I need?

Braille and tactile safety signs needs will be determined by the nature and operation of your business. Consult the relevant health and safety regulations when planning signage and try to incorporate Braille and tactile versions in your initial plan to avoid the need to add them in afterwards and risk having too much signage, which can cause confusion.

Access signs, information signs, hazard signs, safety signs and prohibition signs are all available in Braille and tactile versions. We also provide custom signs for the visually impaired.

Where should Braille and tactile safety signs be placed?

As Braille and tactile safety signs also incorporate visual signage, it is important they are fixed in a position where they are easily accessible.

It is important such signage is at a suitable height for contact to allow those with visual impairments to touch and interpret it, allowing them to stay safe in the workplace.
