EN ISO 7010 Safety Signs and Symbols
EN ISO 7010 was first introduced in 2003 and later updated in 2011.
All workplaces will be required to implement and display the new graphical symbols for safety communication. The objective is to ensure that only graphical symbols with the highest comprehension credentials are used.
The use of common graphical logos and symbols across the European Union will help establish a common safety sign message, and ensure that a sign can be recognized and understood regardless of the spoken language in that Country.
The aim is to introduce a globally recognized range of symbols and pictograms, signage shapes and colours. While any new compliance laws are unlikely to demand an instant change, it makes sense to replace old signage with the new ISO 7010 compliant signage to avoid further costs.
