Critical industries such as oil and gas, energy, construction, and manufacturing pose some of the most dangerous working environments in the world. Workers in these industries can be exposed to toxic substances, explosive atmospheres, and hazardous machinery.
Safety signs and safety tags play a vital role in protecting workplaces within these industries, highlighting occupational hazards, demonstrating safe practices, and displaying essential emergency information—all of which ensure a safer working environment for personnel.
However, in hazardous, high-risk conditions, it is crucial these safety tags and signs are able to withstand wear and tear in order to effectively meet their requirements.
ISO 4892-2:2013 tested materials are a perfect answer to these concerns – providing a durable and reliable solution for workplaces exposed to harsh conditions. In this blog, we will explore what ISO 4892-2:2013 is, and why materials tested to these standards are recommended for safety signs and tags in critical industries.
What is ISO 4892-2:2013?
ISO 4892-2:2013 specifies methods for exposing plastic specimens to xenon-arc light in the presence of moisture to reproduce the weathering effects (temperature, humidity and/or wetting) that occur when materials are exposed in actual end-use environments to direct daylight or to daylight filtered through window glass.
