Safety is and always has been a primary concern for everyone because it feels really good when there is that feeling of security. Since it’s so, people need health and safety signs. Health and safety signs, from the words itself, guides people to safety. It makes a person be aware of the things that might risk his or someone else’s life. Safety signs also make people abide with the laws and regulations. These also guide people whenever there is a calamity or a situation which may endanger their lives comes.
One example of safety signs is the smoking sign. This sign makes smokers aware of where they can smoke. This sign is very beneficial for non smokers especially for children because they are isolated from second hand smoke that is very dangerous for their health. As many already know, cigarette smoke contains many hazardous chemicals so being away from it gives anyone a breath of fresh air. And since many people are very hard to convince to lay-off on the cigarette, having them smoke in the right place gives the same advantage. Smoke signs also guide people where not to smoke so that they wouldn’t be a cause of fire or explosions. People certainly don’t want to be the cause of the death of many people, so having these smoke signs in the right places are very advantageous.
Apart from the smoking signs, there are other safety signs that make everyone’s lives safe. One of these is the danger signs. Of course danger signs indicate if there is a risk that may endanger anyone’s life. An example of danger signs is high voltage signs and radioactive signs. These signs can mean life or death for people who are careless enough not to follow these signs. Another type of safety sign apart from the smoke signs that was already mentioned are the construction site sign. The type of safety signs are again for awareness that there is a construction that is being held in a premise. This would make people near aware that there might be falling construction materials or objects and this sign would tell them to keep away.
