As well as being an industry leader when it comes to safety signs and practically everything health and safety related, UK based Safetyshop have recently taken the decision to use a more environmentally friendly material as a part of their safety sign production process, another area in which the company is leading the way.
The workplace safety specialists have researched alternatives to the material used up until now, PVC at 1mm thick and found that polypropylene to be an all round better choice when it comes to sign manufacturing. Polypropylene is 1.2mm thick, recyclable and hard wearing enough to be a suitable eco-friendly replacement to PVC, meaning that businesses will not need to buy replacements in just a few years time.
All signs manufactured by Safetyshop use the recognisable symbols and warnings covering anything from no smoking signs to no access and fire exit signs, all of which comply with the ISO 7010 standards that apply to all EU countries. The range is also constantly expanding as new ISO symbols are released ensuring Safetyshop’s range covers all possible situations.
Sara Banks, UK Product Manager at Safetyshop commented, “Our safety sign manufacturing process is something we pride ourselves on and this move to the superior Polypropylene signs will help make sure our processes are as environmentally friendly as possible, yet remain effective and compliant with industry standards.
“Safety signs are a large part of our business and we have listened to our customers comments to make sure we are catering for all customers and industries. We have had comments such as being able to find a particular sign being too difficult and made sure to simplify the process, as well as reducing the quantity of duplicate sign styles as well”
