MJN Safety Signs wishes all their customers, friends and family well over the festive season

It's that time of the year again!

MJN Safety Signs Ltd would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support this year and would like to wish you all a very merry Xmas and well over the new year!

What have we been up to this November?

It's been a busy start to the month! Here are a few of the bespoke projects have we have been working on this month.

- We have provided a housing association with 500 Stay put fire action notices customised to feature their logo

- We have provided another housing association with a number of A3 perspex signs identifying which flat is on which floor. We have already supplied them with a number of these for other buildings earlier in the year.

- We have created 36 photoluminescent signs advising of floor numbers for another housing association.

- We have provided a number of bespoke flat number signs  for another housing association.

- Provided a number of floor graphics for a distribution centre.

- Provided a hotel with some entrance signs with their logo on it.

Whilst we have a wide range of stock signs on our website we appreciate that sometimes our customers want their logo adding, they want completely customised signs, customised maintenance labels  - and we can do all of that. Just drop us an email to info@mjnsafetysigns.com and we will be able to help you out. 

As well as these projects we have been providing a number of businesses, colleges, housing associations with some of our stock signage. 

No Safety, Know Pain!

No Safety, Know pain! Is one of our favourite sayings!

If you don't have safety measures in place then you will soon feel the pain whether it's physical pain or financial pain.

There really isn't any room for shortcuts when it comes to safety. The number of times I have spoken to health and safety managers who say that their bosses want to cut corners or don't want to spend on health and safety measures is unbelievable.

Sure you don't get a 'rate of return' on safety products but you can ultimately save on hefty fines, injuries, and your business reputation by doing things the right way as well as creating a safe environment for everyone.

We read all too often about companies being fined for injuries to colleagues or even death to colleagues. It's so important to have staff educated so they know what's expected of them - if there is a spill, how to clean it up safely, if someone is injured, how to deal with it etc. Health and safety is everyone's responsibility and working together in a safe environment is paramount!

So what have we been up to in June!

June was a really busy month for us and particularly our customised signs.

Here are a few of the bespoke sign projects we have worked on this month.

  • We created service labels for a maintenance company
  • Our regular customer was after a large number of bespoke warning gate signs
  • We have created over 100 photoluminescent signs for a housing association
  • An aggregate company who regularly orders from us was after some large dibond aluminium customised signs for their site
  • We created large quantities or customised asbestos labels for another customer
  • A hotel group were after a number of reflective customised parking signs for their car parks.

If you have sign requirements that are not standard  signs don't worry, we can still help you out. Just send us over the specifications and let us do the rest. We won't print the signs until you have confirmed that you are happy with the proofs that we email over to you. We offer quick turnaround times and competitive prices.

 

Where is the 3 months of sunshine we were promised?

I can't quite believe that I am typing this blog with the heating on whilst wearing a thick jumper! It's the middle of June!!! Where is all the sunshine we were promised?

There are flood alerts throughout the UK and the forecast for the next few days is no better!

I'm not very good with plants and watering the lawn (I have just put down some grass seeds a few weeks ago) but the rain is kindly doing that for me. The grass has grown really well but it's too wet to cut and the plants are doing ok too. 

With rain comes a number of hazards one of which is slipping. What can you do to help avoid customers, colleagues etc from slipping?

  • Clean up the any water/mess immediately
  • Display warning signs
  • Use moisture absorbent matts at entrance areas 
  • Have hand rails if there are steps or the area is sloped
  • Report unsafe conditions so that areas can be made safe
  • Use adhesive grip tape around troublesome areas
  • Ensure walkways, entrances and general space is free from obstacles 
Doing it right!

 

We can of course help you with signage and if there is particular wording you would like just let us know and we can help create a suitable sign for you. 

Stay safe and let's hope the sun makes an appearance soon!

Automatic door signs

Automatic door signs

Whenever I go into the town centre I am amazed by the number of these automatic door signs we see. Maybe it's because I am in the safety signs industry that they stand out more! 

We offer then with black writing on white in self- adhesive vinyl and measure 150 x 150mm. 

Automatic door sign

Stating the obvious!

A few weeks ago my son was playing a football match against a team who were about 20 mins away. Thankfully with a Sat Nav the journey was straightforward enough to take me to the school that was hosting the match. However, once inside the grounds of the school, I was faced with a sign with 2 choices; to the left was a single road that lead to the theatre/drama studios and to the right was a road to the sports hall. I chose the route to the sports hall. I followed the road round and faced a dead end! I had a 50% chance of choosing the right route and I used logic, I thought maybe a sign taking to the  'sports hall' perhaps would be near the sports field - but no I was wrong!

Why was there no sign directing the cars to the sports fields? I wasn't the only parent who followed the wrong route! This is a site that has multiple football matches weekly with parents entering the site that may have never been there before. They have a 50/50 chance of choosing the right path!

So really in the grand scheme of things this wasn't a big deal, after all it was only a football match - we got there in the end!  But it made me realise that there are many instances where people go to places they have never been before whether it be a park, a business meeting, to collect a parcel, the list is endless but is it obvious where to go? where the entrance is? does the site expect the visitor to sign in? That one sign can make a difference. We offer a number of visitor entrance signs to help make this easier. We could have even produced a sign for the school identifying where the playing fields were!!!!

 

The year is running away again!

We can't believe that it's almost the end of March! This year is flying by already. Let's hope the pleasant weather is here to stay!

We've had another busy month with a lot of repeat business which is always great to see and a great number of stock orders. Here are a few of the non-stock projects we have been working on in the last week:

  • We've been working with a village hall re-vamping all their signs including a number of parking signs.
  • We've had a property management company after a large number of prestige signs both stock and bespoke for 2 apartment blocks they manage. The are after the prestige look so the signs blend in with the interior.
  • A housing association needed help with creating a bespoke signs for some of their properties in photoluminescent.
  • An engineering company needed a number of bespoke self adhesive signs for their factory with various safety warnings on them.

If we can help you with any signage just let us know!

Fail to prepare = prepare to fail

A while back I came across this powerful saying

'Fail to prepare = prepare to fail'.

It's a great quote to live by. 

Firstly, it was to great use when explaining to my kids about exams, interviews and life in general but also it's so true in a health and safety point of view too! 

Businesses and people need to prepare, they need to have the right health and safety procedures and equipment in place. They need to make sure that their staff are educated and know what to do in emergencies and how to keep the workplace safe. For if they don't prepare they should prepare to 'fail' and with that I mean if they don't take the precautions then they should beware of the consequences i.e hefty fines, employee injuries etc all of which can have serious impacts on the business.

We can certainly help with the health and safety signs and can point you in the direction of some health and safety consultancies to help with this.
