Mandatory instructions, hazard warnings, prohibition notices and information signs are vital tools in the Safety, Health and Environmental industries. Audio signs communicate SHE messages more effectively than conventional signs and improve awareness. The benefits of audible signs are also significant outside the SHE industry sector; applications include messages for the visually impaired, manufacturing instructions, security signs, public information notices, exhibition displays, sales & marketing media. The limit is your imagination.
Employers have a duty of care to keep their staff and the public safe. Unfortunately, as time goes by, people begin to ignore warning information from conventional safety signs; this issue is known as familiarity sign blindness. At Audiosigns we call this issue sign-apathy and have developed products specifically to tackle the problem; independant research has shown that signs which use sound and visual information are six times more effective than conventional safety signs which only use text and graphics. Audiosigns’ products are versatile and have many different applications outside the SHE sector. Work instructions, public information notices, COVID notices, security signs and marketing displays all have far greater impact when the visual message is reinforced by spoken information. 4% of the population live with severe dyslexia and a further 6% have milder forms of the learning difficulty. 3% of the population have a visual impairment. Audible signs also continue to deliver clear, concise messages in darkness and poor light conditions when conventional signs would be completely ineffective.
