Safety signs and signals

HSE has published an updated version of guidance note L64, which sets out what employers must do to meet the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996. This third edition of the document brings the guidance up to date with regulatory and other changes, such as those concerning the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Chemicals (Amendments to Secondary Legislation) Regulations 2015.

The version of the Regulations included in the document has been amended to reflect those changes, with the emphasis still being on signs only being used where significant risks remain despite putting in place all other relevant measures. Hard copies of L64 (revised) can be purchased for £15 from HSE Books, or a free download version can be accessed at: www.hse.gov.uk/ pubns/priced/l64.pdf
