Fire Safety Signage Regulations

Fire signs are a crucial measure of communication when it comes to fire safety, they act as means of displaying key information in a time of crisis and ensure that everybody will have a clear understanding of what to do, no matter the language they speak. This is why The Health And Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations [Northern Ireland] 1996 states that Fire safety signs are:

  • Legal Requirement for business to provide fire safety signage.
  • Legal Requirement for directional arrows and figures on evacuation signage.
  • “fire safety sign” means a sign (including an illuminated sign or an acoustic signal) which—
               (i) Provides information on escape routes and emergency exits in case of fire;
               (ii) Provides information on the identification or location of fire-fighting equipment; or
               (iii) Gives warning in the case of fire;
