BBC One: ‘DIY SOS’ Call for help, SafetyBuyer Answers

This year, SafetyBuyer had the pleasure of helping Getaway Girls, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to empower young women in Leeds. Their valuable and persistent efforts in supporting young women eventually led to a need to expand their headquarters, a project that attracted support from the BBC One series ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build’.

With our experience in ensuring smooth and safe construction builds, we were delighted to be called on by the programme to support Getaway Girls with the project. SafetyBuyer was proud to donate industry-leading first aid stations that were used as part of the life-changing transformation of the Getaway Girls’ new charity headquarters.

What Colour Should a Fire Door Sign Be?

Safety signs have a vital role to play in protecting the health and wellbeing of everybody on site, and few are more important than fire safety signs. Workers and site visitors need to be able to immediately tell where they can find the nearest fire exit, how to locate fire fighting equipment, and how to make sure that vital escape routes are kept clear.

One of the key considerations should always be to make sure you have the right signage in place around your fire doors. This not only means having the right messages in place to instruct users on how to find and use these emergency exits, but also understanding the colour-coding to ensure these signs are being used correctly.

Here, the experts at SafetyBuyer will explain the different types of fire safety signs used in conjunction with fire doors, and how the different colours affect their meaning.

Health and Safety Sign Meanings: What Do the Colours and Shapes Mean?

Safety signs are a crucial aspect of workplace health and safety practices, communicating vital warnings and safety messages to everyone on-site in a visually impactful way. The colour and shape of health and safety signs are a key part of that visual communication - but many might be unaware of exactly what purpose these design elements serve.

Workplace safety rules from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) dictate that every workplace needs safety signs to ensure that everyone knows what to do to keep safe. However, it is also essential that all members of staff are able to understand the meaning of these signs, and that no time is wasted in an emergency having to explain unfamiliar signs to workers - which is why the shapes and colours of safety signs are standardised.

It is your responsibility as an employer to ensure that all of your workers understand any safety symbols and fire safety signs on-site at a glance, to ensure that potential hazards are identified and rules are followed. Fortunately, the differences between the signs are clear and easy to remember.

What is the Proper Placement of Wet Floor Signs?

Wet floor signs play a crucial role in helping workplaces to avoid the slips, trips and falls that can result from wet floor areas on site. A slip and fall in the workplace is one of the most common types of occupational accident, but it can also be one of the most dangerous, potentially leading to broken bones and long-term injuries.

Having a wet floor sign in place will help to alert your workers and site visitors to the potential slip hazard caused by wet floors. This is essential if your walking surfaces at work regularly become wet due to exposure to bad weather or accidental spills, or simply as a result of routine cleaning and mopping.

However, using wet floor signs effectively means that they must be properly placed in a prominent location. Here, we will explore the various factors to consider when deciding where to place a wet floor sign.
