- How does Lab
Graphics Studio help generate safety and hazard signs for our
Lab Graphics Studio gives you the power
to create, consolidate, change and update information for your safety
signs from your computer. Once the template design and content
is to your liking, you can print to your local computer or send
to an outside printing source. The application is specifically
created for busy EH&S and facilities professionals to be easy
to use, time-saving, and cost-effective.
- Why is LGS
better than ordering stock signs?
Unlike generic stock signs, LGS sign
templates are customized for your company's facilities - you
can add your logo or other applicable graphic and design templates
that consolidate and display safety/hazard information specific
to your organization. Your safety message is easy-to-read
and consistent throughout your facility. Lab door clutter
is eliminated. LGS signs are paper-based and designed to fit
on a standard 8 1/2" x 11" page, making them easy and
inexpensive to update. The added LGS Bonus: as you create
and update signs, you build a database that includes facility, personnel,
and hazard information!
- How does the
As you enter facility and contact personnel
information, you build a basic database that makes future sign creation
easier and puts your facility's hazard and safety information at
your fingertips. The search engine lets you track down information
by room, personnel, or hazard quickly and efficiently.
- Can we give
lab supervisors access to their information to view? To
Absolutely. You can designate
access passwords that let individuals view and update information
for their areas only. Spread responsibility across campus
or limit it to the central EH&S office. You decide who
has access to what.
- Can we share
this database information with emergency contacts outside of our
Of course. You can give fire and
other emergency professionals access to the information directly
or generate a printout of the information on a regular basis.
- What does the
finished sign look like?
The template choices are displayed for
you at the Access Level. At the subscription level, you decide
how your template(s) are designed. Both levels let you preview
your sign before saving and printing. To view our standard
templates, click here.

- How hard is
it to change/update information and create a new sign?
LGS signs are easy to create or modify.
Pull-down lists (created as you build your database) let you change
facility or personnel information quickly. It's easy to add
and delete information, if necessary, using the on-screen prompts.
For hazard and PPE changes, click on the choices displayed.
After you've made your selections, preview your sign, save, and
- How many custom
templates can we have at our disposal?
While the system is designed to accommodate
any number of templates, it's in your best interest to limit the
number of templates you use in order to standardize communication
in your facility. Graphics Lab will work with you to create
a primary template that covers the most common conditions in your
facility. Secondary variations on your template can be used
to fill any special needs that might arise.

Access Level signs are $12 each.
Choose a template from the standard template choices and input your
information in the fields provided. You can set up an account
with us and we will bill you per sign.
Subscription Level lets you determine
the number of signs you anticipate needing over the course of a
year and pay a fixed fee up front. The per-sign cost is less
than at the Access Level and is based on volume. For example,
if you opt for a 100-sign subscription, your fee is $950 - or $9.50
per sign. You also have the option of having custom templates
designed and programmed for your company for a $1500 fee.
- Am I charged
for every sign created/changed or every sign printed?
You are charged for every sign created
or modified. Once the sign is created and saved, you are billed
for the Access Level or the charge is reflected on your subscription
counter at the Subscription Level. Once the sign is created
and saved, you can download and print the sign as many times as
you want at no extra charge.
- How do I know
if my subscription is running out?
Each time you download a sign, the number
of signs remaining in your subscription is displayed.
