French “Avis Respirateur obligatoire dans cette zone”—which translates to “Notice Respirator Mandatory in this Area”—sign of various sizes and different materials: PVC, aluminium or self-adhesive vinyl. English and bilingual signs also available when local regulations allow it. You can select an optional UV-protecting lamination to preserve the colours longer; for superior visibility, you have an alternative between a retro-reflective pigmentation and a photoluminescent coverage. Sizewise, 5”x 7” and 7”x 10” are the most common sizes sold, but any other format can be cut as long as a special order has been placed. Contact Sylprotec for signs in another language, for custom-made signs or if you want one of the options listed above.
The OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Association), established by the US Congress in 1970, is the government agency in charge of the enforcement of health and work safety regulations in the United States. Even though here in Canada, we already have a governmental body taking care of all OHS issues, yet sometimes companies and employers prefer to use OSHA standards which are also in use in Canada. Similar to the CSA, the OSHA also has a policy regarding general physical hazards: OSHA 1910.134. According to this standard, and all those under the subpart I, all employers shall provide quality breathable air to their employees. The control of occupational diseases caused by breathing air contaminated with harmful dust, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays, or vapours, shall be the primary objective to all. This shall be accomplished as far as feasible by accepted engineering control measures, for example, local ventilation. When effective engineering controls are not feasible, appropriate respirators shall be used pursuant to this section. The law says that all employers shall be responsible for the establishment and maintenance of a respiratory protection program.Although not mandatory, displaying safety signs is quite recommended to indicate any regulation since it ultimately allows to avoid many woes and sorrows. OSHA signs are well outlined and deliver the message you wish to spread swiftly, regardless of your workers' language abilities.
OSHA signs cover a wide range of circumstances due to their many headers, pictograms, and captions that allow a plethora of combinations regardless of the areas of activity. Signs in compliance with the applicable OSHA standards and featuring the “Notice” header convey an informative message about a general situation or a particular rule in effect. The “Avis Respirateur obligatoire dans cette zone” sign features a blue rectangle at the top on a white background which indicates a notice, thus it shall never be used to identify a danger, a warning or a caution.
Choosing a sign depends on several factors which have to be included in the equation: the ideal material for your workplace, the distance at which the sign will be seen which pins down the size of signs, the way the work environment is shaped which determines the format of signs, etc.
PVC signs can either be displayed inside or outside. Please note that if your sign is exposed to UV-light, colours will fade faster. UV-protecting lamination will slow down the process of fading but the colours will ultimately disappear. Aluminium signs suit a better purpose outside; of course, they can be displayed indoor, especially in an environment where an adverse impact is likely. Self-adhesive vinyl signs work just fine outside but are better fitted for indoor places.
