OSHA Safety Signs Best Practices Guides

DuraLabel printers make it incredibly easy to create labels and signs with whatever safety slogans you'd like to use — and change them as often as you like. The biggest problem may be coming up with a good safety slogan.

What makes a good safety slogan?

A good safety slogan gets people to stop for a second and think. This makes it memorable and more effective.  A safety slogan that gets people to think, and understand the consequences of unsafe behavior works very well.  No one wants to get hurt. But at times we all may rush, take a shortcut, or think we can get away with an unsafe practice just this one time.  Signs and labels with safety slogans remind us that we must always be safe.

If a sign remains in place for a long time, it may become part of the unnoticed background.  If you have a DuraLabel printer you can solve this problem.  You change your safety signs as often as you like.  One option is to use magnetic-backed label tape to make temporary safety signs that can be regularly changed and moved around.  You can even make personalized safety signs, such as:

Happy Birthday Joe!  Be safe.  Be here for another birthday.
