Occupational and Environmental Safety

Door Signs


Door Signs for Labs, facilities, and storage areas will now be created using SciShield.

The new SciShield Door signs will: 

  • Provide an easier way to update information
  • Provide additional information on hazards and PPE including NFPA, GHS and PPE Pictograms
  • Provide a digital door sign with more detail for remote access by Emergency Response personnel when needed.
  • Top header banner colors to determine lab access - similar to the “Dots” system on the previous door signs (See the Colors section)
