App State’s University Communications (UComm), Environmental Health, Safety, and Emergency Management (EHS&EM) and AppHealthCare collaborated to develop clear and consistent health and safety signage for campus buildings.
What you can expect to see in campus buildings
Facilities Operations has installed health and safety signs at building entrances/exits, on elevators, outside and in classrooms and labs, in hallways and common areas, and in restrooms.
Facilities Operations staff will replace common area signs as needed. Departments and units on campus will be provided signage for use in office areas at no charge. Please see below for details on requesting specialty signs for your department.
These signs are being installed in campus buildings by Facilities Operations. Signs are 8.5” x 11” and will be printed on card stock.
Lobbies and lounges

UComm and EHS&EM are consulting with campus areas needing specialty signs, including residence halls, campus dining and more. If after reviewing the sign inventory, you would like to request specialty signs for your area, please complete the Speciality Signage Request Form.
