Safety Sign and Label Quick Tip: Why Materials Matter

By Bethany Stadelmann | 18th Nov 2014

When it comes to effectively communicating safety through signs and labels, you're likely already well-aware that properly crafting the content is important.

But, here's a fact that you may not have considered quite as closely: durability, and the material choices you make, are just as important as content.

Why? Safety signs and safety labels need to be seen – and seen clearly – in order to be understood. Potential injuries and deaths, and your company's liability exposure, depend on the longevity of the materials used in the manufacture of your signage.

Take a look at Clarions quick, 3-minute video, "Durability of Safety Signs, Labels and Markings," where we explain what ANSI Z535 says about warning labels and expected life of products, as well as why durability is essential to every workplace safety sign and product safety label.

For more up-to-date information, resources and tips on a wide range of topics related to safety signs and labels, visit the Clarion video library or Learning Center.

And, keep in mind, our product lines of workplace safety signs, water safety signs and product safety labels offer the finest 3M adhesives, base materials and overlaminates, for products that withstand environmental and surface conditions where others fail.
