    It's a safety sign to be used outside a hazardous room/facility/area with both a risk of intoxication from gases or other airborne substances and a fire- and/or explosion hazard. The text translates as:


    "Smoking and entry
    with open flames
    strictly prohibited!
    Attention; second man!
    Ventilate!
    "

    The "second man" would appear to be a reminder for a rule that another person has to stand by to help/rescue the one entering the hazard area in case of emergency, perhaps by means of a lifeline worn by his colleague.

    I don't think there is a way to tell whether such a sign was used in a military or civilian installation, but the latter seems more likely to me, with a use in industry or perhaps agriculture (for example, on a silo).

    Yes, definitely seen on silos or slurry tanks/pits.
