(Visual Workplace: Byron Center, MI) -- Visual Workplace Inc. offers an extensive line of both standard and customizable personal protection equipment (PPE) signage to communicate safety requirements to visitors and new employees, and to reinforce safety standards to existing personnel.

Common PPE messages include:

• Identifying designated areas that require PPE such as safety glasses, hearing protection, or hard hats
• Statement of 5S and lean safety goals
• Visual example of personnel properly outfitted in required safety attire
• Descriptions of safety equipment, such as the specific type of glove or mask required for various tasks
• Instructions for certain jobs or plant areas, e.g., informing drivers to stay with their loader while rear seals are being fastened
• Identifying safety stations with first-aid supplies, policies, and emergency procedures

Standard and custom PPE signs from Visual Workplace are designed for ultimate durability. Signs can be wall mounted or mobile to fit your application and environment. Custom signs are produced quickly and affordably for the same prices as standard signage.
