A warning sign is a great way to communicate that there is a hazard present that could become a danger. However, this hazard may change or need to be moved and that is why a magnetic warning sign is so beneficial.  Our magnetic warning signs are made from high-quality magnetic materials that allow them to be easily applied to a metal surface.

The magnetic warning sign can be applied directly to a metal canister or surface without the risk of it damaging the product - which is ideal, the last thing you want is to make a hazardous container even more of a hazard! You can remove the magnetic warning sign as quickly as you apply it which allows for them to be reused time after time.

220V is a particular level of electrical potential from a power source, or in simpler terms, the strength of the push given to make electrons flow through an electrical cable. 220V is the standard household voltage in dozens of countries, including China, Saudi Arabia, Chile, Egypt, the U.A.E, and South Korea.  This is then used to power typical household appliances, such as TVs, fridges, and microwaves.

In many countries there is a legal requirement to mark the voltage with a 220V warning label, including the following that we sell:

However, despite the warnings, it is unlikely that 220V would kill an otherwise healthy person; the individual would only experience a painful shock. It would however pose more serious danger to individuals with underlying heart conditions and other health issues.


Why use 220V over other voltages?


Many countries use lower voltages such as 110V or 120V. Although lower voltages are safer than higher voltages, higher voltages allow for thinner electrical cables whilst achieving the same level of electrical current.

BBC Headquarters

If you've been near the internet this weekend, you may have witnessed Gemma Collins solidify her status as the queen of memes by falling through a trapped door hole. Even though Gemma stated she was fine right after, dubbing herself an Essex 'Bridget Jones', it is rumored she may be looking to sue the BBC. 

Here's that fall one more time for those of you who may have missed it.

Speaking on ITV's this morning, Gemma stated that she was not allowed to speculate on whether the hole was clearly marked or if she had been contacted by the BBC about the incident. Gemma has taken the fall in good spirits but speculated that there's a chance it may have been fatal. She is currently suffering from bruising and shock, but believes things could've taken a darker turn. 

The Radio 1 press office has issued a statement which claims it takes health and safety very seriously and are awaiting a full report from the production company, Remedy, who made the show. They said that Gemma did receive a full briefing prior to going on stage. 

We're sure this won't be the last we hear of this! However, Gemma has said that all will be forgiven if she's allocated a spot on next years Strictly Come Dancing.

We think the BBC could've avoided this health and safety hazard by using a few of these signs to warn poor Gemma while she was up on stage...

That's why our packaging signs make all the difference when sending your products!

Food Hygiene Signs

For anyone who had ever suffered from food poisoning, you know exactly how important food hygiene (and food hygiene signs) are. When unhygienic mistakes are made in the kitchen, people can become dangerously sick. Therefore, it is paramount to always take the proper precautions to ensure hygiene is being taken seriously. It can also land companies in hot water, as breaking food hygiene laws can be met with a serious fine

Of course, you hope whoever is preparing food is fully aware of the food hygiene regulations (which you can read more about here) but having food hygiene signs can be a great reminder. These food hygiene signs are used to remind people to wash their hands, wear appropriate clothing and how the kitchen is organised to promote food safety. Not only are they great for the team, they're especially good for new staff who may not yet be accustomed to food hygiene rules.

We have a wide range of food hygiene sings here at Label Source - view our whole collection of kitchen safety signs here. Here's a look at just a few in the collection:

 

 

No one wants hair in their food! Make sure you remind staff to wear a hair net with this useful food hygiene sign.

 

Cross-contamination between raw and cooked food can make people seriously ill. Make your dedicated areas clear with this 'raw food preparation' food hygiene sign

 

You must have a sink in a professional kitchen that is only for washing hands. Make sure it's clear which one this is with this 'Wash Hands Only' food hygiene sign.
