What is the Australian Standard for Safety Signs?

The Australian Standard (AS1319-1994) sets out requirements for the design and use of safety signs in the workplace. It specifies sign classifications and layouts. AS1319 does not specify a required material or nominal size for a sign, but does stress that the type of sign used should be suitable for the intended application, and that employees should be informed of their purpose.

In locations where lighting is good and a sign is mounted in a reasonably prominent position, it is recommended (but not required) that any symbols be at least 15mm per metre of viewing distance, and any uppercase text be at least 5mm per metre of viewing distance. We advise that where practical, signs should be mounted close to the observer's line of sight in the vertical plane.

For maximum effectiveness, signs should be maintained in good condition, kept clean and well illuminated.

To make it easy for you to find the sign you need, the signs have been individually named and are grouped in the following categories:

Example of a Regulatory Sign

These are considered mandatory signs indicating that an instruction must be carried out. Generally the symbols are white, and appear on a blue disc.
