Safety signs are to warn staff of the dangerous condition of the workplace or the surrounding environment, to guide people to take reasonable behavior signs. Safety signs can remind staff to prevent danger, so as to avoid accidents; when the danger occurs, can instruct people to escape as soon as possible, or instruct people to take correct, effective and competent measures to curb the harm. Safety signs should not only match the type and content of the warnings, but also set the correct and reasonable location, otherwise it is difficult to really give full play to its warning role.

Safety signs are classified into four categories: prohibition signs, warning signs, instruction signs, prompt signs, and supplementary signs.
