The ANSI has a customized set of safety labels and signs that need to be followed to assure a safe working environment.
The categories of signs are used by ANSI:
These signs are intended to ensure that only those authorized to enter a particular area are allowed entry. They are intended to prevent visitors and other individuals from entering restricted areas.
Color Scheme: White, Red, Yellow, Blue
To warn workers to stay away from areas that might cause them to be exposed to potential biohazards and dangerous chemicals that can cause serious injuries.
