Keep your team safe with our high-quality asbestos signage
Asbestos is one of the most common and dangerous hazards faced by homes and construction sites in Australia. Asbestos exposure can cause mesothelioma, asbestosis and a range of cancers including lung cancer. When working on or near any premises where asbestos has been found, proper asbestos warning signs must be installed effectively.
There are strict WHS laws about the proper use of asbestos signage. Warning signs or labels must be placed in any location where asbestos has been located or is assumed to be present. These signs must be visible, concise, and comply with the standards of AS 1319-1994.
This means that providing effective warnings for asbestos can require a high volume of signage.
Our asbestos warning signs are available in a variety of durable materials including aluminium, hi-impact poly and Colorbond steel and are compliant with Australian regulations. Asbestos signage can be ordered individually or in packs of 5 or 10, giving you added flexibility and value. We stock yellow and black warning signs and white and red prohibition signs, so you can choose the right sign to suit your needs.
Asbestos safety signs in a range of sizes and materials
Asbestos releases spores when handled, which increases the area where asbestos safety signs are required. For instance, you may need signage surrounding an entire structure or building to prevent pedestrians or employees from entering. This often means placing signs in exposed areas and direct sunlight, increasing the risk of wear and tear from the elements.
For outdoor signage, yellow asbestos warning signs provide added visibility in dark areas or at night. We also add a layer of lamination to all our signs during manufacturing, which reduces cracks and fading if signage is placed in direct sunlight. This makes our signs more effective day and night.
Asbestos can lurk in many places without being detected, including pipes, ceilings, furnaces, and wall insulation to name a few. This can add further difficulty when placing asbestos warning signs correctly.
Our signs can be ordered in various sizes to suit the intended location, whichever material you choose. For example, it’s often recommended to directly label any equipment that is affected by asbestos. With Safety Signs Australia, you can order decals of your asbestos removal signs in the same transaction.
