Safety signs always serve a purpose, to warn people of regulations or potential danger, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be done with an added sense of humour. Whether to be taken seriously or simply used as a gag sign there are plenty of funny and effective safety sign designs out there. In this article, we’ll share with you our top 5 favourite funny but effective safety signs. At Westmount Signs, we can help you come up with your own effective and possibly humorous safety signs.

5. Do Not Enter

Makes sense right? Without context, this sign seems completely useless. How are you supposed to enter if the door doesn’t open? We can only assume this is some sort of automatic door that needs to be opened from the other side and they’ve had people attempt to bust through the door even when the door doesn’t open, but whatever the case this sign is sure to draw an initial chuckle from anyone who reads it.
4. $200 Fine

If there’s any sign that’s going to be effective in stopping you from touching a wire this would be it. Not only do they warn you that making contact with the wires will cause death, but what’s even worse is that you’ll also be charged a $200 fine. If death isn’t enough to scare you away surely taking a hit to your bank account will do the trick. The Newcastle Tramway Authority will probably have no trouble keeping people from touching their wiring anytime soon.
3. Think of the animals

Clearly the owners of this sign are more concerned with the well-being of the animals in the zoo than the life of their customers. This sign is a great twist on the classic “do not climb the fences” sign by insinuating that the health of their animals should not be affected as a result of your own bad choices.
2. Sharp Edges

We can only assume that this sign wasn’t meant to be taken seriously, but it certainly does a good job of drawing attention with its clearly humorous message. The worrisome part is that there is an actual warning on this sign at the bottom where it states, “also, the bridge is out ahead.” If this sign was actually used to warn oncoming vehicles that a bridge was out it’s probably the most ineffective sign on this list. Despite the fact that it would be almost entirely ineffective the dry humour incorporated by the sign is simply too much to leave it off this list.
1. No “P” in our “OOL”

Hygiene is always a concern in public pools and the owners of this sign wanted to make sure they did their best to keep it that way. This sign is likely to catch the eyes of passersby who believe that either the “P” fell off the sign or the makers of the sign accidentally misspelled “pool”, only to find out that it was no mistake but a cleverly designed sign that certainly gets the point across effectively. We think this ool sign is ositively erfect!
