Ships and marine technology — Design, location and use of shipboard safety signs, safety-related signs, safety notices and safety markings — Part 2: Catalogue

ISO 24409-2:­2014 prescribes standardized signs and safety notices specifically for use on board ships. Each sign is categorized and indexed according to the safety message that is to be conveyed. Each sign is provided with relevant information on the preferred format of use, the context in which it is used and displayed as well as a description of the intended audience. The shape and colour required to be used for each sign, as prescribed by ISO 3864-4, are given together with the graphical symbols contained within each sign. ISO 24409-2:2014 specifies the sign originals that may be scaled for reproduction and application purposes. It includes signs which require supplementary text signs to be used in conjunction with them to improve comprehension. This catalogue is intended to be under continual revision as new shipboard signs and notices are added and as new requirements are identified and corresponding safety signs and notices are developed and standardised. Where an ISO 7010 reference number is given in ISO 24409-2:2014 it means that the sign is identical to the one in ISO 7010.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national

standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally

carried out through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which

a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee.

International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part

in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all

matters of electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for

the different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance

with the editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject

of patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent

rights. Details of any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the

Introduction and/or on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does

not constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions related to conformity

assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the WTO principles in the Technical

Barriers to Trade (TBT) see the following URL: Foreword - Supplementary information

The committee responsible for this document is ISO/TC 8, Ships and marine technology,

Subcommittee SC 1, Lifesaving and fire protection.

Introduction

The growth of international travel by ship has created a need to provide people travelling and

working on-board ships with signs and associated systems that communicate consistent and

effective safety information. This part of ISO 24409 specifies a system of safety and safety-related

signs on ships and other marine installations that is generally consistent with standardized signs

with which many will have gained familiarity in other applications.

As such, this part of ISO 24409 clarifies and supplements existing requirements set out in SOLAS

regulations II-2/13.3.2.5.1, III/9.2.3, III/11.5, III/20.10, and ISO 17631. However, it is directly

applicable to shipboard safety and safety-related signs only, and does not deal with graphical

symbols to be used on shipboard plans or documentation.

This part of ISO 24409 contains a catalogue of signs developed in accordance with the general

design principles specified in Part 1, for application on ships in accordance with the code of practice

in Part 3.

IMPORTANT — The colours represented in the electronic file of this part of ISO 24409 can be

neither viewed on screen nor printed as true representations. Although the copies of this

part of ISO 24409 printed by ISO have been produced to correspond (with an acceptable

tolerance as judged by the naked eye) to the requirements of ISO 3864-4, it is not intended

that these printed copies be used for colour matching. Instead consult ISO 3864-4 which

provides colorimetric and photometric properties together with, as a guideline, references

from colour order systems.

1 Scope

This part of ISO 24409 prescribes standardized signs and safety notices specifically for use on

board ships. Each sign is categorized and indexed according to the safety message that is to be

conveyed. Each sign is provided with relevant information on the preferred format of use, the

context in which it is used and displayed as well as a description of the intended audience. The

shape and colour required to be used for each sign, as prescribed by ISO 3864-4, are given

together with the graphical symbols contained within each sign. This part of ISO 24409 specifies the

sign originals that may be scaled for reproduction and application purposes. It includes signs which

require supplementary text signs to be used in conjunction with them to improve comprehension.

This catalogue is intended to be under continual revision as new shipboard signs and notices are

added and as new requirements are identified and corresponding safety signs and notices are

developed and standardised. Where an ISO 7010 reference number is given in this part of ISO

24409 it means that the sign is identical to the one in ISO 7010.

5 Standardized shipboard safety sign and fire control plan signs

5.1 Tables 4 to 11 give safety sign and fire control plan sign originals in a uniform 70 mm size with corner

marks to enable accurate enlargement and reduction scaling. The sign illustrations are shown without borders

in order to allow for consistent reproduction scaling, though the use of borders is encouraged as defined by

ISO 3864-1. The signs should be reproduced exactly as shown in Tables 4 to 11. However some degree of

graphical modification is permitted when cultural differences or special application formats need to be

considered, provided the original meaning is retained and comprehension of the safety or safety-related sign

is maintained. Consistent reproduction and use of these signs will lead to a progressively improved degree of

comprehension at the international level.

5.2 In cases where the orientation of the graphical symbol is not essential to the meaning of the safety sign,

the graphical symbol may be reproduced in a mirrored form. For prohibition signs, it is essential that the

prohibition bar does not obscure significant details of the graphical symbol.

NOTE The graphical symbol is the complete image containing all the graphical symbol elements as shown in the

registered safety sign.

5.3 Where a graphical symbol is not available to indicate a particular desired meaning, the meaning shall

be obtained by using the appropriate general sign together with supplementary safety information.

5.4 Tables 4 to 11 present the safety sign and fire control plan sign originals according to their category as

follows:
 MES - Means of escape see Table 4
 EES - Emergency equipment signs see Table 5
 LSS - Life saving systems and appliances see Table 6
