School safety signage FAQs


Why do I need safety signs?
Safety signs keep teachers, students and faculty safe when on your school’s campus. They can reduce accidents, enforce school rules and make sure your building is compliant with local, state and federal regulatory codes.

What kinds of safety signs are required for compliance on educational campuses?
Most signage guidelines for schools are established at the local and state levels. For more information on local regulating agencies, visit the U.S. Department of Education website. If your school is storing any hazardous chemical cleaning products or if your campus includes a chemistry lab, kitchen, auto shop or other potentially hazardous environment, you may need to follow OSHA, ANSI and ISO safety signage guidelines. You’ll also need to make sure you meet local fire codes and appropriately mark all entrances and exits.

How do I know which safety signs I need?
Start by checking in with local and state regulations as well as the federal agencies listed above to make sure you’re meeting the minimum compliance guidelines. Then, call the experts at ComplianceSigns, who can help you determine which signs will best meet your facility’s needs.
