In Australia, we have a Standard for such things and I believe they are
international. All bulk fuel depots, oil refineries and oil company head
offices usually have one.

Also contact sign manufacturers. They make a living out of providing these
signs and will know what is available.

Hi Robert;

In a message dated 98-07-19 17:03:37 EDT, you write:

> Does anyone know the standard symbols for Danger, Caution, Warning, etc.

Actually, from my experience, there are four:

DANGER (An extreme, violent or continous hazard to life)

WARNING (An operating or maintenance procedure, practice, condition,
statement, etc., which, if not strictly observed, could result in injury or
death to personnel)

CAUTION (An operating or maintenance procedure, condition, statement,
which, if not strictly observed, could result in damage to or destruction
equipment, loss of mission effectiveness or long term health hazards to

NOTE (of other important things)

I'm sure that there is an international standard (if only I could find it)
I have noticed that there are variations around the world (aerospace,
military, etc.).

I would suggest doing what we always do, ie whatever you decide, make a
at the front of the publication.
