Fire Instruction Signs

Whilst the provision of health and safety training and qualifications such as the NEBOSH Fire Certificate will help to reduce the likelihood of a fire occurring in the workplace, the chance can never be completely eliminated. And although the fire safety training will have given workers a great deal of information on what to do in the event of a fire it is still a good idea, not to mention a legal requirement in many countries, to have fire instruction signs placed in prominent positions around the workplace which serve as a reminder of what to do and what not to do when discovering a fire, hearing the alarm and evacuating the premises.

These fire safety signs should be clear and concise with the information and the instructions that they give. They are intended to act as reminders and are no substitute for fire safety training itself, and will contain information that workers should already have been told such as not to use lifts in the event of a fire and where the emergency assembly point is once they have exited the building.

The prominent positions around the workplace where these signs are located will most often be in areas where people will be when affected by a fire such as next to alarm points, or next to the items that the signs describe such as the lifts which the sign says not to use in the event of a fire.
