Accessible Parking Signage identifies designated parking for any vehicle with a disability plate or placard permit. These specially marked spaces are provided for the exclusive use of persons with a disability, who must be driving or a passenger in the vehicle when parking in the disability parking space. This standardized sign includes an icon image of a wheelchair for easy identification.
Color scheme: Blue background and white lettering
Accessible Entry/Exit Signage identifies accessible entries and exits. Visually impaired and physically disabled customers can safely navigate the building with ADA accessible signs for entrances and exits. Braille signs and options for level entry and ramp accessibility provide secure access to your organization’s physical space. The standard accessibility sign, using the easily recognizable wheelchair icon, can be used for these signs, as well.
Color scheme: Blue background with white lettering
Braille Signage ensures those with low vision or blindness can identify important areas of your workplace. Typically, these can be added to existing signs with Braille lettering beneath the wording of the signs. Our Braille signage will help you fully comply with the law while offering custom Braille signage to support your brand.
Color scheme: Braille lettering does not have color schemes. Instead, it matches the coloring of the background of the sign.
Include Braille lettering in these locations, as well as any other important direction, information or location in your workplace:
Compliance (broadly referred to as compliance signs) and safety signs and labels have become an important part of everyday life in the United States, especially in 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought the need to protect the health and safety of U.S. citizens to the forefront of public discussion. In the early days of the pandemic, the shortages of adequate personal protective equipment for front-line health workers raised serious concerns. Despite this renewed interest, the health and safety of U.S. workers has been the responsibility of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) for many years. Many of the compliance and safety signs and labels have been developed to meet their requirements and protect worker health and safety.
Along with protecting health and safety, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides accommodations and workplace requirements to create greater accessibility for employees and customers. Many people think of signage to identify accessible parking, entrances, restrooms, and other access points. However, ADA-compliant signage can make the workplace more accessible in other ways, such as providing signage in braille.
Many signs and labels are also in response to the voluntary standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Although many of these signs and labels are taken for granted, they are essential in protecting workers’ and visitors’ health and safety. If these warnings are ignored or not followed closely, they could result in serious injuries to your employees and legal ramifications if there are injuries to visitors of your business. In addition, ADA-compliant signage is required to show you are following regulations set forth by the ADA and demonstrate that you are an inclusive business that cares about the accessibility for your employees and customers. Customized signs and labels specifically apply to your business and organization’s needs, as well as how individuals access your organization. This tailored approach enables you to operate your business successfully in a safe and healthy environment.
ADA-compliant signage ensures your workplace is accessible for employees and customers. The more signage you provide to promote accessibility, the easier people will know how to get around, whether they need accessible entrances or exits or Braille lettering for directions.
