What are the different types of safety signs in a factory?

Safety signs in a factory play a crucial role in preventing accidents and ensuring a safe work environment. The main types of safety signs include: 1. Warning Signs: These alert workers to potential hazards, such as dangerous machinery, slippery surfaces, or high voltage areas. 2. Prohibition Signs: These communicate actions that are not allowed, like smoking, using mobile phones, or entering restricted areas. 3. Mandatory Signs: These instruct workers to follow specific safety measures, such as wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) or adhering to hygiene protocols. 4. Emergency Signs: These indicate escape routes, first aid stations, and emergency equipment, guiding workers during emergencies. 5. Fire Safety Signs: These provide information about fire extinguishers, alarm points, and firefighting equipment, ensuring quick response in case of a fire. Understanding and following these safety signs is essential for maintaining a secure factory environment and minimising workplace risks.
