would not the default action be to turn the knob to open the door? Have you ever come across a door with a knob on it that you didn't assume required that you turn the knob to open it?
As an engineer, you would probably want to see more explicit guidance, e.g., "Grasp knob firmly in either hand (or both, if so inclined), applying sufficient gripping force to produce rotation of the knob in either direction, followed by a forward thrusting motion sufficient to move the door from its at-rest state and disengage it from the jamb on the side opposite the hinges. Using the momentum generated by the aforementioned thrusting motion, push door in the direction of travel, sufficiently wide to allow ingress or egress, as desired. Should the door fail to open, door may be locked or door may open in inward direction (and this sign should have been posted on the other side of the door)and a pulling motion, rather than a thrusting motion, will be required. Once door has been opened and ingress or egress attained, ensure door is returned to closed position by pushing or pulling, as appropriate."
