Promote safety in your facility with our high visibility mining signs, available in a range of tough materials
Miners are exposed to a wide range of risks and hazards each time they enter the mine and with visitors frequently entering the site, the exposure to danger is heightened tenfold.
Australian Government legislation requires all mining sites to have correct and appropriate safety signage to encourage a safe working environment for miners, visitors and managers alike. At Safety Signs Australia, it’s our goal to promote safe work conditions and ensure miners are reminded of hazards and areas which could cause potential harm.
We also provide flashing lights, delineators and reflective tape to make sure your site is safe, prepared for hazards and compliant with government regulations. It’s crucial to keep workplace safety at the forefront of your mind and, overall, is an essential part of running a successful mining operation.
Safety Signs Australia understands the needs of the mining industry. Browse our range of high visibility mine signs and keep your workers safe and informed.
Laws around mine safety signs
According to the Australian standard AS 1319-1994, mining sites must have safety signs in the workplace. Any workplace where workers need to wear protective clothing (including hard hats) and contains hidden hazards is bound by this standard.
AS 1319-1994 is designed to regulate and control safety-related behaviour which is why mine site safety signs are essential. These signs offer warnings around hazards and provide safety information like fire protection, first aid and evacuation points/emergency exits.
If you work in or manage a mining site, you will need to erect signs that comply with AS 1319-1994. At Safety Signs Australia, we personally manufacture the signs you need to keep team members and visitors safe from harm on mine sites -- browse through our collection and order online today.

With many dangers present on mining sites, we manufacture a wide range of mine signs to make work safer and more efficient. Our range of mine signs includes:
“Safety First” signs including first aid signs, muster point signs, emergency signs, “stay alert” and “report all accidents -- no matter how small” wording. Highly recognisable in green and white text.
Stop signs including standard road safety signs, “no entry into workshop” signs, “staff only” signs and more. Available in red with white text.
Fire emergency signs including “fire hose and reel” signs, “fire door -- do not obstruct” signs, hydrant signs, fire extinguisher signs and more. Available in red with white text.
Road safety signs like speed signs, “one way” signs, “no exit” signs, “keep left/right” and more. Available in white with black text, occasionally with red outlines.
Hazard signs like asbestos warning signs and “pipe under road” signs to prevent digging. Available in yellow with black text. “Pipe under road” signs feature yellow and blue with white text.
Our range of mine safety signs is second to none. We also offer custom safety signage -- simply get in touch with our team and provide imagery, colour specifications and material preferences. We print our mine signs in-house in Paxton, New South Wales, and offer a free laminate coating for protection and longevity.
What mine signs do you need for your workplace?
As every work site is different, it can sometimes be a challenge to know what signs are required for both legal purposes and the safety of your team. With this in mind, we’ve put together a helpful checklist to help determine what kind of signs are needed on-site:
If your mine site is prone to or at risk of an emergency situation, you need emergency information signs to indicate muster points and emergency facilities like eye wash stations and shower stations
If you have vehicle operating in the area, you need traffic signs to direct traffic and highlight pedestrian exclusion zones
Most workplaces, including mines, will need to install more than one kind of safety sign to ensure all bases are covered. For more information about what mine safety signs you need, we recommend talking to your occupational health and safety (OH&S) officer or addressing the official OH&S handbook.
We offer reflective tape for all purposes
Alongside our mine safety signs, we also offer highly reflective tape to draw attention and warn workers of potential hazards. Available in a wide range of recognisable colours, our Class 1 reflective tape has a multitude of purposes -- attract the eye to potentially hazardous situations or machinery, guide vehicles in dark areas and identify light vehicles, trucks and forklifts.
Our reflective tape is diamond grade with a strong adhesive, so we guarantee it will last without peeling, fading or getting damaged.
Custom materials to ensure your signs go the distance
Because we print and manufacture mine signs in-house, we offer a wide range of durable materials to choose from to suit the environmental challenges of your site. We offer:
Aluminium -- great for indoor and outdoor use. Aluminium signs are both rust-proof and waterproof which is why they are often used for street and road signage. Aluminium will last many years without breaking down or failing, making it an excellent choice for mine signs.
Colorbond Steel -- proven durability and longevity. Colorbond Steel has been tried and tested in harsh Australian weather conditions from rain to hail, snow and high heat. Thanks to the tough steel, the colour will not fade and the signs will not suffer under harsh working or environmental conditions.
Decal -- known for resistance and durability. Decal is a combination of vinyl and strong adhesives. Decal can withstand even the harshest of work environments and conditions, and are resistant to chemicals, humidity and other environmental factors. Ideal for use outdoors.
Hi impact poly -- one of the most common polymers worldwide. Hi impact poly has a glasslike texture and is highly cost-effective if you’re looking to keep costs down.
For mining sites, we recommend either aluminium, decal or Colorbond Steel. For more information about our materials, please get in touch with our team at 1300 220 536 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We can provide expert recommendations and advice suited to your specific work site.
