According to the Regulatory Reform Order 2005, employers are responsible for for fire safety. That means employers must ensure that a fire assessment has been undertaken on their premises to dentify the potential risks and appropriate steps taken to to mitigate them. Not doing so can lead to substantial legal penalties.
Non-automatic fire-fighting equipment should be positioned in accordance with BS EN ISO 7010:2012 to aid comprehension. Positioning the appropriate signs between 1.7 metres and 2 metres from the floor will usually prevent them from being obscured by furniture.
Whether you are replacing a sign, or signing a new area, we recommend a walk-though audit of the space, keeping notes of your observations and decisions. Use our Sign Size Guide
