French “Avertissement Haute tension”—which translates to “Warning High Voltage”—sign of various sizes and different materials: Plastic, 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, 7” X 5” and 10” X 7” 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 1910.145. According to this standard, and all those under the subpart J, all employers are required to inform all publics of the rules in effect to avoid any confusion. High tension is the best way for transmitting large quantities of electricity reliably with fewer losses, but who says high tension, says no luck if one gets in contact with it. A sign is thus the least you can do to preserve your employees’ lives. 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 “Warning” header convey a message about a potentially dangerous situation. The “Avertissement Haute tension” sign features a black rectangle at the top on an orange background which indicates a possibly dangerous situation, that is where one can sustain bad or deadly injuries. Warning signs may never be used to represent a hazard to materials and goods unless also posing a hazard to the body.

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.

Plastic 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.

Please contact our customer service for any custom-made sizes or for English or bilingual signs. Allow at least four (4) weeks of delays for the reception of special orders. If you can’t find the sign you’re looking for, call us and we’ll customize our products accordingly.
