In any type of workplace, fire safety signs are vital. Having the right signs in the right place will help ensure the safe evacuation of staff in the event of a fire and will also help to comply with the regulations.
The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996
The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 came into force on April 1 1996, and relate to the use of fire safety signage in the workplace. The regulations apply to all places and activities where people are employed and require employers to provide specific safety signage whenever there is a risk that has not been avoided or controlled by other means.
