A sign should communicate to the reader its message as clearly and in as short a time as possible, whilst ensuring the information given is complete and accurate. It should not over complicate a sign by trying to say too much, but keeps to the important facts as succinctly as possible.
Generally for safety signs, if at first glance you cannot understand the message the sign is trying to convey, then the sign has failed its purpose.
Safety signs have a picture or diagram of some sort. In most cases this will relate directly to the message which wants to be conveyed. This helps those who perhaps cannot read, suffer from dyslexia or speak a different language.
Occasionally the message is impossible to illustrate with a simple picture, and in these cases a general symbol (be it warning or prohibition etc) will be used.
Today’s signs are designed with white boarders, ensuring that there is always a contrast between the sign and the background it is placed upon.
Upper and Lower Case Text
Studies have shown signs are more legible in both upper and lower case from a distance when compared to using only capital letters.
To fulfill your order as quickly and efficiently as possible, we sometimes will split your order into a number of different packages so that we could take advantage of the items in stock at different warehouses. Items you order from Complete Safety Supplies may sometimes be sent in more than one delivery. For example, you may receive multiple deliveries if your order contains an oversized item that needs to be dispatched separately. Regardless of the number of deliveries you receive, you'll only be charged the amount that was originally quoted to you at the time you placed your order. Orders will only receive one delivery charge.
