Watch Your Step Signs

SORT BY:
Mark off trip hazards around the workplace by positioning Watch Your Step signs around them. These caution signs are appropriate for areas in the facility with slippery floors and staircases with steep steps. By providing a warning, they can help personnel and visitors avoid injuries. Browse the wide selection of caution signs at Staples® to find the right Watch Your Step signs, warehouse signs, and cleaning supplies for your building.

Prevent Accidents by Picking the Right Watch Your Step Signs
While most of these safety signs are wall mounted, some options are also available as standing floor signs and equipment labels. Floor signs are especially useful while cleaning and renovating a facility since users can easily move them between locations. Trip hazard signs prevent slips and falls by warning people to be cautious when passing through accident-prone areas. Words must be easy to understand and graphics recognizable. Watch Your Step warning signs must comply with the regulations of organizations tasked with providing workplace safety standards. In the U.S., these organizations are ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration).

Consider Message and Language When Selecting Watch Your Step Signs
OSHA and ANSI regulations require public and business facilities to use trip hazards signs that start with headlining words like caution and danger. Below the headlines, the signs must provide concise and accurate warnings or descriptions of potential dangers. For maximum effectiveness, some trip hazard signs include graphics that demonstrate the kind of dangers they forewarn. Facilities with workers and visitors fluent in different languages should choose multilingual signs. These provide the warning in at least two languages.

The simplest Watch Your Steps warning signs tell people to just watch their steps while others provide explanations about floors being slippery when wet. Another class of trip hazard signs warns about dangers when taking stairs. These range from those that tell passersby to step up or down when moving between floors. Those meant for inclined floors like ramps provide an early warning that there are no steps going to lower floors. Others ask people to use handrails for safer ascents and descents.

How Do You Find the Right Sizes for Watch Your Step Signs?
To choose an anti-slip sign of the right size, consider the distance between pedestrians and the intended location of the warning. The sign should be big enough to be readable at regular viewing distances. Choose small signs for tight corridors and large ones for wide hallways.

What Materials Do Watch Your Step Signs Use?
Trip hazard signs can be made of aluminum, plastic, vinyl, and fiberglass. Each of these materials has its strengths. For example, aluminum is a lightweight, rust-resistant metal while vinyl is a flexible material usually with adhesive backing. Signs made of aluminum and plastic are ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. Only use vinyl indoors while fiberglass is best for outdoor locations.

Do Colors Matter When Selecting Watch Your Step Signs?
Yes. Caution signs use colors that call attention to warnings and contrast well enough to make messages legible. The most popular colors for trip hazard signs are amber/yellow, red, green, and blue. Red signifies urgency and imminent danger. Green is for advisory signs.
