According to OSHA regulations, signs indicating general danger or caution must be visible at all times when work is being performed. When the hazards no longer exist, the signs should be removed or covered.
- Danger Signs should be used only if an immediate hazard exists, (colors should include red, black, and white)
- Caution Signs should be used to simply warn against any potential hazards or unsafe actions, (colors should include yellow and black)
Using these signs accordingly and for their intended purposes will help decrease the risk of work related injuries. VIew www.osha.gov for more information.
