Why are Fire Safety Signs Important?
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that all workplaces must have adequate safety signs, to point people towards fire-fighting equipment, emergency routes and emergency exits. Primarily, they are used to warn and instruct employees of risks to their health and safety.
This legal requirement is vital because, without proper signage, you are potentially putting employees’ lives in danger. Under health and safety law, all employers have a legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their employees whilst at work; fire safety signs are just one of the many things that you can do to comply with this requirement.
