Hospital

Medical Emergency Room

Medical Facilities are required to use labels according to NFPA codes

Hospitals can be a very dangerous place when it comes to chemicals and hazardous materials. Properly labeling containers and areas can help prevent exposure, accidental spills, and explain how to properly dispose. Some examples of what should be labeled in hospitals include:

  • Compressed Gas Cylinders
  • Vessels
  • Tanks
  • Surgery Rooms
  • Hazardous Waste containers
  • Chemical Containers
  • Biohazards
  • Chemical Storage Areas
  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Emergency Eyewash Stations
  • Petri Dishes
  • Restricted Areas
  • Shelves

An underestimated danger within hospitals are the lack of wayfinding signs. Wayfinding signs are used to help direct people through aisles and hallways as well as show where the emergency exits are. It is easy to get lost in a hospital without signs to help you find where you need to go, how to get back, and where to exit. A visual wayfinding system includes orientation, directional information, destination identification, and situation/object identification. Often times, graphics and arrows are used to help describe the goal of the sign.
