It will remind you of the things that sometimes you tend to forget.
2. Awareness – Safety signs make you more attentive. Aside from conveying the message that there is a possible danger in that particular area, it will make you familiar with that specific area and tell you subconsciously about the possible consequences when you go beyond those signs or if you don’t follow such warnings.
