They also cover general principles for how to choose and place warning signs and information about the kinds of signs which should be used.

A full risk assessment of all hazards should also include emergency response planning and the development of evacuation routes in the event of an emergency. Once you perform your full risk assessment, you will know where best to place your flood warning signs.

If you are buying signs for a road or outdoor area, it is really important to place the signs in highly visible areas, so that the signs will be eye-catching and easy for visitors to spot.

It is important to continually check in on the signs and perform any maintenance necessary – such as replacement, cleaning, and re-installation.
