Our fire exit signs are installed to locate and identify means of escape in the event of any emergency evacuation in the workplace. To help determine where fire exit signs and other emergency exit signs should be installed, employers can refer to the results of their risk assessment. If it highlights that control measures need to be taken following identified hazards and risks relating to means of emergency escape, fire exit signs should be installed in all relevant areas of the workplace. Read our guide to safety signs which details types of signs, materials and a FREE site survey.
Comply with the Health and Safety (Safety signs and signals) Regulations 1996, which stipulate that all Health, Safety, Emergency Escape and Fire Equipment Signs MUST include a pictorial symbol. As an employer, you are required to comply fully with the provisions of these regulations.
Emergency escape signs guide you from wherever you are in a building to the assembly point. It must not be assumed that everyone will know all safe routes through the building and it must not be assumed that people will know how to get to the assembly point once outside the building so signs directing to the assembly point may also be required.
All of our Fire Exit/Emergency Escape Signs are compliant to BS EN ISO 7010:2012 which stipulate that all Health, Safety, Emergency Escape and Fire Equipment Signs MUST include a pictorial symbol. The old EC Directive (92/58/EEC) designs should no longer be used due to their low comprehension credentials.
