Fire Signs

Body

Means of Escape's 'Guide to Fire Safety Signs and Signing' has been produced to help organisations identify signage needed within their premises. The guide demonstrates good practice in accordance to the appropriate British Safety Standards and will aid you in signing your premises in accordance with an effective risk assessment, helping you to fulfil the requirements of current legislation. 

 

Correct Safety Signage in line with British Safety Standards not only aids awareness to staff and visitors but importantly assists in effective means of escape.
