The new symbol was launched on 15 February 2007 by the IAEA and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to help reduce needless deaths and serious injuries from accidental exposure to large radioactive sources.

Implications - The new sign is hard to miss, it features radiating waves, a skull and crossbones and a person running. This specific sign was tested on multiple demographics around the world to make sure that the message of "Danger- stay away" is properly conveyed and understood by everyone. Although it is hard to actually inform all the people in the world about radiation, ensuring that everyone knows that it's a danger and should be avoided is very important.
