ISO 4892-2:2013: Are Your Safety Tags and Signs Durable Enough?

Braden Lewis

Safety signs and safety tags play a vital role in protecting workplaces, but in high risk environments how can you be sure your solutions are going to remain effective? ISO 4892-2:2013 tested materials might be your answer.

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.

Why are ISO 4892-2:2013 Tested Materials Suitable for Use in Harsh Conditions?

Essentially, if a material has passed the ISO 4892-2:2013 test in which it is exposed to weathering effects, it will be suitable for use in harsh conditions.

In critical industries, workplaces such as oil rigs or chemical plants are often exposed to extreme heat, rain, wind, frost, or UV. Due to the dangerous nature of these locations, safety signs and tags must be able to remain effective no matter what the conditions. According to HSE, safety signs and signals must be “clear and legible” at all times in order to avoid confusion. However, if signs and tags made from cheap or flimsy materials are used in these extreme conditions, they will most likely become faded or brittle and fail to serve their purpose effectively. This can lead to potentially fatal (and costly) accidents.

ISO 4892-2:2013 tested materials are designed to withstand extreme conditions and are therefore ideal for use in critical industries. Safety tags and signs made from these materials are long-lasting and reliable – ensuring no safety messages are missed and all personnel are kept safe.

ISO 4892-2:2013 tested materials are:

  • UV resistant: Don’t fade or break down over time under the sun’s damaging rays.
  • All Weather-proof: Built to resist fading and weakening for a reliable sign.
