There is a page that lists all road signs for Germany. They look a bit
different than yours, but at least those two mean the same.
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a tag for hazardous materials
yet. A possibility would be:

I thought about that too. I guess motorvehicle=no would be a good way to
combine all motorized vehicles in one tag. Also vehicle=no would be
useful for ways that are closed for all vehicles, since access=no would
also disallow access by foot. Besides, I find it inconvenient to first
disallow everything (access=no) and then allow all those that are
allowed to go there (foot=yes), instead of just representing what the
sign says (vehicle=no).
