French “Attention Hommes au travail au-dessus”—which translates to “Caution Men Working Above”—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 1910.144. According to this standard, and all those under the subpart J, all employers are required to report any potential or confirmed danger to their employees. In this particular case, let’s say an employee is tasked with sweeping stairs, for example, the employer might want to make sure all employees working under the stairs are taken under consideration and safe from getting a dust cloud on their heads. We sometimes unwittingly act without paying attention to others at work; a sign as a little reminder that there are other people around who may have to accomplish tasks temporarily inconvenient to others if they don’t step away for a little has its purpose. 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 “Caution” header convey an informative message about relevant situations in the work environment concerning minor to moderate injuries. The “Attention Hommes au travail au-dessus” sign features a black rectangle at the top on a yellow background which indicates a warning, thus it shall never be used to identify something that can cause serious injury or death.

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.
