PROVIDE VISUAL SAFETY AIDS AND MESSAGES – Use color codes, posters, labels, and/or signs to warn employees of potential hazards. Additionally, place OSHA posters in all work and recreational areas – and use digital signage to broadcast important safety information, updates, and messages.

- This visual aide displays real-time data and reminds employees to stay safe.
- Digital signage can be incredibly helpful in emergency situations as, unlike static posters, you can use it to instantly warn or notify workers of a situation in areas where mobile phones and computers aren’t allowed.
You can also use digital signage to post daily or weekly workplace “Safety Tips”, recognize employees who have demonstrated outstanding safety awareness and keep employees up to date on new rules and regulations.
