It’s easy to underestimate the importance of having proper signage. Signs are a quick and concise form of communication that designate a specific message. Without properly manufactured and maintained signs, we would have absolute chaos—whether it’s on our roadways, workplaces, commercial properties, or parking lots.
Why You Need Signage in Parking Lots
Each day, pedestrians, motorists, bicyclists, buses and commercial vehicles may traveling in and out of your parking lot. To reduce the risk of injury or damage to your property, having proper signage is necessary. Signs help direct traffic, warn of danger, provide order and efficiency, among many other safety benefits. In addition, installing new signs after your parking lot has been paved or newly seal coated can improve the overall appearance.
Signs for Workplace Safety
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal agency that has regulatory and enforcement authority over workplace safety standards. OSHA maintains strict guidelines for workplace signs. This includes where they must be used and how they should be manufactured.
Employers who properly use signs may find fewer accidents and injuries on the job site. Using signs can also increase efficiency and influence safe habits throughout the facility.
Safe Travels on Washington Highways & Roadways
Highway and roadway signs serve a number of purposes. They support the flow of traffic, provide direction and aid in navigation. Signs are helpful as they alert drivers of possible dangers on the road, such as construction work, hazards, sharp turns, etc. Here are common examples of highway and roadway signs:
Marker Signs: These include route markers, alternative routes, advance turn auxiliaries, directional arrow auxiliaries, etc.
Warning Signs: Examples of these signs include low clearance, crossings intersection, turn and curves, etc.
Regulatory Signs: These signs include speed signs, stop signs, yield signs, turn and lane use signs and road closed signs.
