The most important reasons for using safety signs in your visual management roll out, is that if they are colour-coded, your mind immediately assimilates that knowledge. In the same manner, tick marks in green show that the work has been done in the tasks to do list. You can customize your production boards to show any sort of data, information, charts, graphs, et cetera.

Along by using visual signs on the production board, safety signs can also be used for giving important information about important notices, danger, performance, safe areas, potential hazardous areas, work orders, raw material availability, work schedules, deadlines, and so on. Apart from being used as security measures, these signs can also give the workers and employees on the floor necessary and pertinent knowledge and facts about production trends, safety measures, et cetera

Safety Signs in bold and colorful designs added to your display boards, during the testing and the rollout of a particular product can take the place of verbal supervision and verbal instructions. These signs in real-time also eliminate time constraints, especially when you are in a tight schedule. Just imagine that your production is in a particular stage, when workers need to put on protective clothing. An immediate safety sign coming up on your production board to the accompaniment of a signal is both an audio as well as an aural way of communicating “we are now on such and such stage, put on your safety clothing.”

There is another reason why safety signs are a key element in your visual Management roll out. Just imagine that you’re working in shifts. One shift is on that particular production stage where a safety sign can tell the workers in the other shift about the production status. So they can take adequate measures, before they start on their own scheduled work for the day. Easily visible production boards with these highly demarcated signs are thus excellent ways and means in which this up-to-date knowledge is transmitted to everyone on the production floor.

So it doesn’t matter what sort of communication tool you are using on your floor in order to transmit important information and knowledge to your team. It can take the form of communication charts and boards, traditional production control boards, scoreboards, and other visual Management informational methods. The point is to keep important data and information on the forefront of your team’s mind. This interaction can be between the team workers and the management, the individuals and their department heads and between different departments. Using safety signs as one of the important visual management tools to impart information to the people in your organization is thus a sensible option for any far seeing Management board.
