How Health & Hand Washing Signs Improve Customer Trust

Do you really need to post health and safety signage? These days, no matter what industry you’re in, safety signage is a helpful tool for customers and businesses alike. When your customers feel safe in your environment, they’re more likely to feel comfortable shopping. To turn hesitant shoppers into return shoppers, hand washing signs, stop the spread signs, and other safety signage are vital.

Advocating Safety During COVID-19

For some industries, hand washing signs are nothing new. In fact, they’ve long been legally required. You’ve probably seen them in the bathrooms of restaurants. These health safety signs are great for two reasons:

  • They serve as helpful hygiene reminders for customers and employees
  • They reinforce the idea that you put effort into establishing the best practices for your business

Implementing these signs into your business, even if not required, will have the same effect. Of course, the current situation with COVID-19 means that there are a variety of safety signs now relevant to, and beneficial for, the workplace. Look for signs with messaging about lowering the curve. We’ve seen many companies begin using stop the spread signs, wash your hands signs, and social distance signs to promote good health.

Examples of Safety Signs for Your Business

Stop the Spread Sign

This is a great prevent the spread sign because it has a whole list of clear, informative guidelines. Many businesses have begun posting this sign outside of their establishment to let potential clients know they are taking precautions, as well as to let incoming customers understand the ground rules for entry.

5″ x 7″ Please Wash Your Hands Sign

We love this hand washing sign because it’s clear and polite! If you’re looking for a sign that kindly advises employees and visitors to wash their hands, go with a sign that says “please”.

Maintain Safe Distance Floor Signs

Maintaining distance is a necessary precaution to take in stores right now. You can remind customers to space out in your building or at checkout with these footstep floor decals. (Tip: see more social distancing products.)

8″ x 8″ Stop & Wash Your Hands Sign

For a hand washing sign that customers and employees can’t miss, go with the Stop & Wash Sign. It comes with 10 permanent labels per set so you can have one in your bathrooms, kitchen, and/or employee breakroom.
