The Importance of Warning Signs

May 17, 2016

Warning signs are required to meet specific requirements related to their reflectivity, design, a height that they will be mounted and size. All these are done to make sure that the people the message is being passed on to receive messages that are consistent and uniform regardless of where they are. These signs are especially important and required to be used on roads and construction site. However, these are just examples of the areas where it is common to find various types of warning signs. Other places that warning signs can be used include in hospitals, schools, businesses, industries, airports and so on. When used on roads, they are also referred to as traffic signs and are used to make the road users aware of a hazard ahead that might not be apparent.

Different origins, same message

In many countries, these signs take the shape of an equilateral triangle that has a uniform white background and red colored border that is thick. The specifications of the warning signs vary from country to country and from one individual to the next. Some signs are placed on hazardous material that is also seen to be almost similar across different regions, albeit with few alterations. For example, in some countries, the signs have images only, in others they have words while other have a combination of the two.
