Hi, hope you can assist. In an office, is it a requirement to have a "hold the handrails" sign in the blue or because it is an office we do not need to use the blue sign but can have a sign in the company colours? Thank you kindly, Leigh

Hi Leigh

It would not be requirement to have a "hold the handrails" sign - it would be considerd as good practice.

If you do however decide to use a sign it must comply with the SANS standard.
