We have developed this simple communication system by using single hand/arm movements against a persons body which means a specific safe work practice while working in all factories, construction areas and wherever else safety conditions are required The person giving the signs is referred to as the "signaller", and uses the hand signals to give safety/work procedure instructions or arising situations to the person(s) receiving the hand signs referred to as "the receiver"
The basic technique (by the signaller) is to use a flat horizontal hand in a back and forth motion across the neck region (pointing fingers to the throat region) to attract attention of the other worker(s) or management (and or maybe a voice call or whistle could be incorporated to enhance the receivers attention more quickly) to the receiver
The next movement of the single hand is a basic hand display that relates to a particular component of safety or worker safety well being i.e. a hard hat is required, full face respirator is required , a dangerous electrical situation and so on
The receiver is then obliged to rectify the safety issue being given by the signaller
We believe this communication system will help promote uniform safety in the workplace as it is immediate, direct, specific and clean cut with the specific parameters being transmitted or conveyed
