Updated Safety Signs at Kulevi Oil Terminal


Safety signs at Black Sea Terminal (BST) were successfully updated recently. Our HSSEQ team periodically assesses and replaces signs if they become damaged, faded, or otherwise unreadable. Keeping workers safe is an obligation according to ISO45001, and having a visual communication strategy, namely safety signs, is important for a safe workplace. Adherence to ISO45001 standard requirements is encouraged by BST management.  

 

Safety signs play a large part in keeping facilities compliant and employees knowledgeable. It is critical for workers to understand the types of hazards in the workplace, the level of risk the hazard presents, and what precautions to take.

 

Safety signs also encompass “NOTICE”, signs as well as safety instruction signs and keep our employees well-informed. These types of signs alert employees of where first-aid kits can be found, the locations of emergency eyewash stations, and provide information in a clear and concise manner.

 

There are 4 types of signs that can be found on a BST site:

  1. Traffic control signs: If a facility has vehicle and pedestrian traffic, stop signs, yield signs, and other types of traffic control signs will keep forklifts and pedestrians safe.
  2. Prohibition signs: These remind people not to smoke, not to enter certain areas, not to use their cell phones etc.
  3. Security signs: These signs help to protect people and property by keeping people out of certain areas.
  4. Office signs: Every facility, even a typical office, has a need for safety signs. Signs used for office purposes often provide directions or instructions regarding tasks.

 

Having the proper signage at BST helps to reduce the probability of dangerous incidents occurring at the workplace. In addition, national legislation requires the use and posting of safety signs where necessary. That is why safety sign compliance is therefore both beneficial and essential.
