This link shows some icons and what colors tend to mean when indicating
hazards on safety labels, but they can also be applied to other
documentation. ANSI and ISO standards (or are they just
recommendations?) can be a little different.

We only use yellow caution triangles at Zebra with some of the icons
shown on this site (ESD, electric shock, burn hazard). Our printers
don't cause death or serious injury, but they can give you an electric
shock or burn you. When I worked for Motorola's radio system sector, we
used red for danger, orange for warning, and yellow for caution as
described on this site because you can literally fry yourself on some of
the high-voltage radio towers.

This site here shows a red circle with a white X to denote errors. I
would save the red triangle with an exclamation point for dangers that
indicate bodily harm.
