Fire Safety Signs

The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 apply to all premises where people are employed. The regulations oblige employers to display specific safety signage whenever there is a risk that has not been avoided or limited by other means. Fire safety signs are included in this legislation. The signs must be understood by all employees whether English speaking or not. This is why pictogram signs must now be used and text only signs are no longer adequate. Social psychologists have found that clear unambiguous signs are one of the first things that people respond to when in search of an instant answer in a risk situation.

Fire safety signs such as fire exit signs should be located in the average range of vision; they should be prominent and take precedence over all other signs. The regulations state that fire safety signs should be large and clear enough to be easily seen and understood. Fire exit signs and exit signs should be clear at all times. In buildings where emergency lighting is in place, these should be illuminated by the emergency lighting in the event of a malfunction of the standard lighting.
