The Canadian Standards Association Technical Committee on Signs and Symbols for the Occupational Environment has drafted CSA Standard Z321 to order to warn, inform, and communicate messages in this environment.
The system consists of three classifications, each divided into subtitles in combination with six colors and four shapes. Size relationship of the shapes was determined with consideration for visibility, legibility, and glyph content. Classification, colors and shapes are as follows:
Prohibition: An order forbidding an action.
Mandatory: An order for obligatory action.
Caution: Potential hazard.
Danger: Definite hazard.
Emergency first aid, health, fire fighting, and emergency equipment.
Railroad storage yards, divers (scuba) and Miscellaneous.
This standard gives greater meaning to red by restricting its use to two categories only: 1 .I Prohibition and 2.2 Danger.
Yellow is restricted to one category only: 2.1 Caution.
Green is restricted to one application only: 3.1 Emergency.
Blue is restricted to a single use: 3.2 General Information.
Black is used in three applications: 1 .I Prohibition, 1 -2 Mandatory, and 2.1 Caution.

Roc Tan Corporation places value in the power and importance of safety, which is why we make our Canadian windsock regulations and symbols clear and easily visible on all our windsocks. When you order an imprinted windsock from us, we’ll deliver a product that meets or exceeds regulatory standards. If regulatory or warning symbols are in use, it’s essential that the symbol is clear. Roc Tan Corporation uses reliable and long-lasting materials to print the symbols onto each windsock. The information that Canadian windsock regulations, symbols, and colors offer is extremely valuable to know and to share with your company’s workforce so that they can be knowledgeable when it comes to safety in the workplace.
