Mandatory action safety signs

Mandatory action safety signs

Mandatory safety signs are used to highlight actions that must be taken to safeguard health and/or avoid injury in a given area such as the use/wearing of PPE or abiding by safe workplace practices. These types of signs are widely understood helping businesses or organisations comply with current regulations, creating a safer working environment.


At Anchor Safety we supply mandatory signs in a range of materials & sizes to highlight all types of required actions. We can offer guidance on the type, size and material to best suit all locations and budgets. A business logo or brand can be incorporated if required. All pictograms will adhere to ISO 7010:2019 (technical standard for graphical hazard symbols on hazard and safety signs) and artwork will be provided for approval before proceeding with manufacture.


Please contact us to discuss this further.

  • The objective of the system of safety signs is to draw attention rapidly and unambiguously to specific hazards/actions/prohibited actions
