Sign Shape

Throughout the years standardized safety symbols have provided critical information for accident prevention and personal protection very effectively.

 Illustrated or pictorial signs can promote quicker and more effective communication of your safety message, which results in greater safety for everyone.

Using the sign shape to surround a symbol provides additional emphasis about the nature of the message. Here are some of the most common surround shapes, and the recommended colors for each type of hazard. Please note, international safety sign formats require surround shapes by ISO 3864 standards.
