Prohibition safety signs

Prohibition safety signs

Prohibition safety signs are used to highlight actions or behaviours that are prohibited to safeguard health and/or avoid injury in the workplace and can cover actions such as smoking, use of equipment, access to areas. 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 signs in a range of materials & sizes to highlight all types of prohibited 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.

  • Safety signs must never be a substitute for necessary protective measures
  • The objective of the system of safety signs is to draw attention rapidly and unambiguously to specific hazards/actions/prohibited actions
  • Safety signs may only be used to give information related to safety
