EEVA | Signage and safety features

It is forbidden to unjustifiably remove or circumvent safety features and signage.

Safety features are part of the hardware: they are usually technical means that help reduce risks. Examples include a railing or safety valves. If these are removed incorrectly, this immediately leads to a possible incident.

Signage, on the other hand, has the function of alerting everyone.

  • What does the risk consist of?
  • How serious is the risk?

Examples are safety labels on recipients and pipe markings.

Others are safety ribbons and scaffolding plates or signs " No entry. Confined space.”

Traffic signs also fall into this category, as does signage on railroad tracks.

Signage should support everyone's correct behaviour and is thereofore extremely important as a preventive tool.
