[/ultimate_heading][vc_column_text]The type of sign or tag used in a particular situation must be appropriate for the degree of hazard or intent of message. The workplace safety signs with Danger and Caution headings have standard legends that must be used exactly as shown in the USACE Sign Standards Manual.

If a sign with a unique legend that doesn’t appear in the UNICOR catalog is needed, the procedures detailed in this course must be followed. The sign legend shall be concise, easy to read and should contain enough information to be easily understood.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”turquoise” style=”dotted” border_width=”3″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”There are often two to three parts of a safety sign:” heading_tag=”h3″ alignment=”left”]1.
