Welcome to our category page for yellow hazard warning signs that relate to temperature and radiation warnings in the workplace. On this page, you will discover variations on the caution hot water signs as well as radiation warning signs and caution hot surface signs.
As with all workplace signs, temperature warning signs and radiation signs are required to ensure that staff and visitors to commercial premises are made aware of potential hazards and dangers and as a result, kept as safe as possible.
Not only is this a moral obligation, it is also a legal one. The Health and Safety At Work Act states that “employers should be transparent and inform workers of any work-related risks” Appropriate signage along with induction training that explains and draws attention to it is an important way of doing this.
In many ways, radiation and heat hazards are not something that can be seen instantly. This makes displaying appropriate warnings in prominent locations that draw attention to the invisible danger even more important.

Now let's take a closer look at our hazard warning signs:
Format and Appearance
Hazard warning signs like the caution hot water sign use the internationally recognised standard ISO colour scheme of a yellow background with black pictograms and black lettering. These signs feature the common yellow triangle that warns of danger with either the exclamation mark or an alternative pictogram relevant to the specific hazard in black against the yellow background. Underneath, any cautionary or explanatory text is printed in black against a rectangular yellow background. A typical example might be Caution Hot Water in the case of temperature warning signs.
These signs are available either as a strong and weatherproof 1mm thick acrylic version. These can be mounted on any surface using a strong adhesive, double-sided tape or screw fixings. We also offer convenient peel and stick vinyl signs for quick and easy mounting on doors and other flat surfaces.
Here at Puffin Plastics, our standard sizes come in A3, A4 and A5 sizes. However, as the manufacturers of these warning signs, we can always design and print an outsized or customised sign to your specifications.
Carrying out regular risk assessments will help you manage hazards in your workplace. If the changing workplace brings new risks, then regular reviews will identify any new hazards that you need to warn against.

Mounting and Displaying
Of course, a hazard warning sign needs to be displayed in close proximity to the hazard itself. Choose a large enough sign and display it prominently so that it gets easily noticed. Make sure that the material is fit for purpose.
In the case of a warning hot water sign for example, if the sign is near a sink and could get splashed regularly, you might consider the rigid acrylic version.
