Biohazard symbol warning labels
These biohazard symbol warning labels are part of our biohazard & radioactive range of warning signs and symbols. The 150 x 150mm Biohazard symbol labels are self adhesive vinyl so can be easily placed in the appropriate location.
They are used to warn against biological substances which pose a threat. Ideal for containers including cylinders which contains material which could pose a threat and therefore require a biohazard label.
The appropriate protective clothing should also be worn when dealing with substances labelled with the biohazard symbol.
Health and safety signs regulations
The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) – Regulations 1996, requires employers to ensure that safety signs are provided (or are in place). The safety signs should be maintained in circumstances where there is a significant risk to health and safety that has not been removed or controlled by other methods.
The Regulations implement European Council Directive 92/58/EEC on minimum requirements for the provision of safety signs at work. The Directive standardises safety signs throughout member states of the European Union (EU) so that wherever a particular safety sign is seen it provides the same message. The intention is that workers moving from site to site, such as service engineers, will not be faced with different signs at different workplaces.
