Safety Signs

Emergency Equipment

JALITE photoluminescent emergency equipment safety signs are sited to allow trained personnel to identify the location of life saving equipment, especially during an emergency. This is especially important, where persons on the premises have been injured, harmed, or need to escape using specialised emergency evacuation equipment. For example, where occupants are injured, the designated first aider of the organisation will need to quickly identify the first aid equipment.

Using JALITE photoluminescent emergency safety signs featuring first aid, stretcher, emergency telephone and more, allow this equipment to be identified in all lighting conditions. All JALITE photoluminescent emergency equipment safety signs are designed with graphical symbols that conform to BS EN ISO 7010:2020. These safety signs are also categorised with a green safety colour and square, as specified in BS ISO 3964-1:2011.

Quick overview

Characteristics

BS ISO 17398:2004 - Safety colours and safety signs. Classification performance and durability of signs.

This International Standard specifies requirements for a performance-related classification system for safety signs according to expected service environment, principal materials, photometric properties, means of illumination, fixing methods and surface. Performance criteria and test methods are specified in this International Standard so that properties related to durability and expected service life can be characterized and specified at the time of the product’s delivery to the purchaser.


DIN 67 510 Part 1: 2020 - Phosphorescent pigments and products - measurement and marking at the producer.

This standard applies to the measurement and classification by the manufacturer of phosphorescent pigments and the phosphorescent products made from them, for example for marking escape routes and hazards, in buildings, underground thoroughfares, on aircraft and ships, for marking equipment, fittings, utensils, working clothing and safety clothing. This standard specifies a series of conditions for testing the change in luminance over time and for identifying the tested phosphorescent products.


BS ISO 3864-1:2011 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 1: Design principles for safety signs and safety markings.

This part of ISO 3864 establishes the safety identification colours and design principles for safety signs and safety markings to be used in workplaces and in public areas for the purpose of accident prevention, fire protection, health hazard information and emergency evacuation. It also establishes the basic principles to be applied when developing standards containing safety signs.


BS ISO 3864-3:2012 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 3: Design principles for graphical symbols for use in safety signs.

This part of ISO 3864 establishes the safety identification colours and design principles for safety signs and safety markings to be used in workplaces and in public areas for the purpose of accident prevention, fire protection, health hazard information and emergency evacuation. It also establishes the basic principles to be applied when developing standards containing safety signs.


BS ISO 3864-4:2011 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 4: Colorimetric and photometric properties of safety sign materials.

This part of ISO 3864 establishes the colorimetric and photometric requirements and test methods for the colours of safety signs to be used in workplaces and public areas. It provides the colorimetric and photometric specifications for the named safety and contrast colours prescribed in ISO 3864-­1. The physical requirements that safety signs have to meet are primarily related to daytime colour and normally lit environments. This part of ISO 3864 also includes the colorimetric requirements and test methods for safety signs and phosphorescent material which also operate in unlit environments.


BS 5499-10:2014 - Guidance for the selection and use of safety signs and fire safety notices

This part of BS 5499 provides guidance on how to select, install, position and maintain safety signs conforming to BS ISO 3864‑1 and BS EN ISO 7010, excluding escape route signs, to present specific safety information. Fire safety notices are also covered in Annex A.


BS EN ISO 7010:2020 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Registered safety signs.

BS EN ISO 7010 ensures the appearance of safety signs is consistent and the meaning clear wherever safety signs related to people are needed. The shape and colour of each safety sign conforms to the design principles in ISO 3864-1 and the design of the graphical symbols conforms to the design principles in ISO 3864-3. These safety signs are intended for use only where there is a risk to people. They may appear in workplaces and public areas, safety manuals and notices, product labelling and escape and evacuation plans as appropriate.

VIEWING DISTANCE
The expected viewing distance of a safety sign is described according to the Z factor. The Z factor is the ratio of the viewing distance divided by the sign height (graphical symbol height plus geometric shape according to BS EN ISO 7010:2020 image) - Direct line of sight.
