Communicating Safety is Important for Hawaii Beaches
Lifeguards on beaches are busy rescuing people every day from dangers associated with large bodies of water. Why? Because many people don’t recognize the potential hazards related to beach environments – everything from sharp coral to seriously strong undertow that can rip you from the shore. Injuries and deaths occur frequently enough that communicating safety is paramount for beaches across the U.S. Clarion Safety teamed up with the state of Hawaii to create best practice beach safety signs to protect swimmers at the state’s beautiful beaches.
Clarion Safety’s Fix: ISO-formatted Safety Signs to Avoid
Clarion Safety designed new safety signs for a large number of these hazards – signs meant to affect people’s behavior so they can better avoid harm. Clear and concise language was used in conjunction with eye-catching International Organization for Standardization (ISO)-formatted graphical symbols to communicate the most essential messages. It should be noted that the symbol elements were made predominate because of the necessity to convey safety information to the wide variety of international, often non-English-reading, people who visit beaches.
