Health & Safety Refresher: Fire Safety

Health & Safety Refresher: Fire Safety
13/01/2020

With new laws regarding fire safety in consultation this year, it’s very important now more than ever to ensure your safety signage is clear and consistent around your premises.

If you are in any way responsible for a business or commercial property, you must display the required signage to ensure employees and/or customers are safe and meet safety standards, as well as:

Carry out a fire risk assessment of the premises and review it regularly Tell staff or their representatives about the risks you’ve identified Put in place, and maintain, appropriate fire safety measures Plan for an emergency Provide staff information, fire safety instruction and training

One of the best ways to make sure that your signs are clear in all conditions, is to opt for photoluminescent. Photoluminescent signs will self-charge in ambient light, meaning that if there is a power failure or conditions mean visibility is poor, these signs will illuminate, creating a clear guide to the nearest exit in an emergency, as well as any extinguishers, alarms and more.

As well as clear and concise signage, ensuring that employees are aware of the correct procedures and locations of aid in the event of a fire is incredibly important. Fire notice boards and action notices can be a huge help with this, as well as fire assembly point indicators. These can all contribute to minimising panic during a fire and maintaining an organised and calm manor which is vital during an emergency.
