Fire Safety and Health & Safety Signs
Safety signage minimises the risk of accidents in the workplace and is a universal, easy-to-understand way of communicating important health and safety information to people using the building.
We can supply your business with all the new and replacement signage you need to comply with UK health and safety regulations. From mandatory actions and warning signs to fire exits, first aid, CCTV and health and safety signage, we can source a huge selection of workplace signage at very competitive prices.
Health and safety signs can be broken down into four main categories of sign, which are colour coded as follows:
- Prohibition signs
have a red outline circle or triangle and prohibit certain behaviours, which are usually portrayed on the sign (e.g. No Smoking).
- Warning signs
these give warning of a hazard or danger and normally appear on a yellow background (e.g. Caution! Mind your head).
- Mandatory signs
let people know of behaviour that must be taken (e.g. ear protection must be worn), and feature a blue background.
- Emergency or first aid signs
these give information on emergency exits as well as first aid or rescue facilities and feature a green background.
Whatever your safety signage needs we have a full range of health and safety signage available to buy direct from our warehouse in Bolton. Signs can be printed on a variety of materials and in different sizes to suit your requirements.

Parr Fire Protection Services have supported our business with all aspects of fire safety services requirements. The team are friendly, approachable and understand the needs of our business, which is paramount in a live building. Their business ethos is not to find problems but to find solutions.
Parr Fire carried out an upgrade on our Stadium fire alarm system, which was in-depth and complicated. Parr Fire carried out the work professionally and with minimal disruption. They also provided engineers, at very short notice, when we had issues with damaged fire protection equipment on site. This has proved invaluable to ensure our business and hotel can remain functioning 24/7.
