Many health and safety hazards can be eliminated through the use of proper signage. The Health and Safety Executive website explains that safety signs must be used at work whenever a safety hazard has not been able to be completely eliminated by the employer. The many types of warning and caution signs each have different implications. Danger signs, for instance, are used for more severely hazardous work areas, while caution signs are used to warn employees of potential risks.
