The logo can also be defined as a graphically designed emblem that can be used as a sign or as a brand awareness of a particular company or even individual.Most logos also include the organizations names or abbreviations.The difference between the other signs or logos and the health and safety signs is very small.The public should be able to notice and recognize the health and safety signs when they see them.There are health and safety symbols that are designed in order to warn people of a hazardous product or situation.
The colors used in designing the health and safety logos and signs are very important. The colors used in the health and safety signs are important because they help the people in reading and interpreting the signs fast in case there is an occurrence of a dangerous situation.When designing health and safety logos one should be able to pair up different colors and use them for warnings or indicating hazardous products or places.In most fire safety logos they use the red and white colors.The colors used in some health and safety organizations is green and yellow for example The American Society of Safety Engineers logo.
On the other hand prohibition signs like no smoking, no way through may use different colors like white, red and black.The directional signs mostly on highways also play a big role to ensure accidents do not occur. Most of these directional road signs are green and white to enable visibility by the road users whether it is during the day or at night.There are also colors like blue and white which are also ideal for the health and safety logos.
In the designing of health and safety logos, shapes and symbols also play a big role.The use of the letter H in designing most hospital signs is a good example of shapes and symbols used.The healthcare facilities, clinics and hospitals are usually symbolized by the letter H in the middle of the signs.The Red Cross organizations on the other hand uses a red crossed and white sign.There must be uniqueness in the shape or symbol used in the health and safety logos to avoid misinterpretation.The board where the logo is embedded on can also be shaped differently to look more unique and attractive.
The originality of the health and safety logos is also very important when designing these signs.Copy work from other signs should be avoided at all costs if not entirely.The originality of the sign should also ensure that it is easily recognizable. Colors and shapes that are common should also be avoided entirely. The health and safety logos should also be simple to understand and more direct.
