When it comes to buying safety supplies for your business, Seton believes that it is a terrible idea to try to skimp on the cost. There are a couple of ways to get free or very cheap safety signs, such as printing them out yourself from the Internet. However, these poor quality copies of safety signs simply aren’t up to the job.
Whilst the symbols and shapes of safety signs are a universal language, the quality of the sign really does affect how the message gets across. The sign needs to be as clear, noticeable and visible as possible in order to warn, advise or inform. A cheap printout will never be good enough quality to make the sign work effectively.
It is a recognised fact that high quality health and safety signs make people feel safer. If you were at work and you saw a cheap printout in place of an official safety sign, you would think that your employers didn’t really care about safety or take it seriously. This may make you worry about your safety whilst at work.
In an emergency situation, such as a fire for example, people rely on the information they receive from safety signs. If the signs are cheap and not up to the job, it could cause accidents, injuries or maybe even fatalities. Is it really worth risking the lives of your employees for the sake of saving a few pounds?
However, all of this doesn’t mean that you have to spend a small fortune on safety signs, products and supplies. Many business owners find that saving money with bulk safety products is the ideal way to get everything they need at the right price. Bulk buying is easier too, as you can get all the supplies you need in one order that is delivered at the same time.
