Fire Safety Signs Enquiry
Fire exit signs
A fire exit is an additional route that occupants would use to enter or leave a building. The obligations under Fire Precaution and Health and Safety at Work Regulations and Legislation recommend that from any given point within a building, occupants can easily identify their nearest safe escape route. The use, application and correct sitting of signs can make a major contribution to the effectiveness of good fire safety management!
Fire extinguisher identification signs
The obligations under Fire Precaution and Health and Safety at Work Regulations and Legislation recommend that all fire fighting appliances are clearly marked and that they are easily accessible at all times. These signs can assist you in meeting those requirements. They also assist in the training and education of employees, by identifying the contents of the extinguisher and the type of fires that it is both safe and unsafe to use on.
Fire equipment location signs
These fire fighting signs ensure that occupants are aware of the location of fire fighting equipment.
Hazard warning and prohibition signs
When positioned in conspicuous locations, these hazard warning and prohibition signs can assist occupants in creating a safer working environment, by clearly highlighting potential risks, restricted areas and forbidden and restricted activities.
