How Wayfinding Signs Handle the Job of Keeping People Safe
March 30, 2019 by Charles Momanyi
The beginning of a safety mindset starts with determining specific locations in your facility that visitors or employees should use extra care when navigating.
The next step is providing the proper wayfinding signs and visual graphics around those particular spaces. Here are four ways that wayfinding signage can help create safer places for people to work and visit.
1. Use Signage To Lead the Way
By implementing clearly-marked entry and exit points on campus, building or site, people can quickly and safely find their way. The moment people arrive at a location can often be one of confusion and uncertainty, and wayfinding signs can help put them at ease.
2. Reign in Safety With Perimeter Signage
Perimeter signage can also direct foot traffic around restricted or dangerous areas, as well as provide crowd control at events.

3. Prepare People for Potential Disasters
Ensure people know where to go - and not go - ahead of an actual emergency by having wayfinding signs in place.

4. Include Safety from the Ground Up With Floor/Concrete Graphics
Signs and graphics placed at foot level can alert walking traffic to cautionary information and provide pedestrians with helpful information such as transportation zones.
