Our Safety Awareness System (SAS) is a pictorial based signage solution that promotes awareness of hazardous areas and operations; mandatory requirements; and prohibited actions.


By using internationally recognised symbols (pictograms), our SAS transcends cultural and language barriers and can be used on all types and classes of rigs/vessels, anywhere in the world.


Quality Safety Signage Board

Key Benefits:

•  Our visually impacting, text free system ensures quick identification of your safety message.

•  Due to the international recognition of the symbols, there is no need to re-sign if the facility/vessel changes location.

•  Eradicates the need for multiple signs, reducing the risk of 'sign blindness'.

•  Complies with all national and international regulations.

•  Each board will be tailored to suit your corporate identity e.g. logo, colours etc.

Why Seaward Safety's SAS?


To accommodate varying numbers of pictograms, we offer 3 sizes of boards: four, twelve, and twenty squares. Our SAS can also be tailored to include room/area names.

By using consistent pictograms throughout a facility/vessel, your crew/employees will become familiar with the pictograms and the safety message that you are trying to convey.

To ascertain your SAS requirements, Seaward Safety offers a fully comprehensive on-site Surveying Service.

A little history about our SAS:

Seaward Safety developed their SAS with Sedco Forex in the late nineties. It has since been adopted by many our offshore and onshore clients, on a global scale.
