Description

This Standard provides for signs using a system of coded shapes and colours with symbols which pictorially describe hazards (i.e. signs for conveying safety instructions without relying on any text message), and signs with text (words and numerals) messages (including recommendations for multi-lingual signs); accident prevention tags are also covered.

The signs are classified as regulatory; caution (warning); emergency-related information (including fire signs).

All standard symbolic (pictorial) signs are reproduced in colour and examples are included, also in colour, of text-type signs. Photometric and colorimetric properties of the sign materials are dealt with, and recommendations on styles and sizes of sign lettering are included.

Scope

This Standard sets out requirements for the design and use of safety signs intended for use in the occupational environment to regulate and control safety related behaviour, to warn of hazards and to provide emergency information including fire
protection information. It does not include EXIT signs of the type specified in AS 2293.1 for use inside buildings.
