All commercial premises are required to provide some fire safety signage – at the very least a Fire Action Notice and a Fire Extinguisher ID sign.
Otherwise they may not meet the regulations set out by the Fire Safety Order (read more about the Fire Safety Order in our blog).

There are 4 main types of fire safety sign that are used in the United Kingdom:
- The ‘Fire Action Notice’ which explains what to do if there’s a fire
- Fire safety signs showing the location of fire exit doors, routes and assembly points
- Signs which indicate fire-fighting equipment is located (e.g. extinguishers)
- Signs such as ‘Danger’ or ‘No Smoking’ which warn of hazards or prohibit behaviours
Because a premises’ lighting may fail if there’s a fire, fire safety signs are photo-luminescent. This is so the glow of the signs can help occupants make their way out of the building and find fire-fighting equipment.
Which signs you require depends on what your premises are used for, how they’re laid out, and which fire-fighting equipment you have. A complex building with many floors and corridors, or a building which routinely stores hazardous materials will need more fire safety signs than a small, one-storey, one room building (for example).
The Fire Action Notice
Includes information such as how to call the fire brigade, which exit to use to leave the building and where the assembly point is.
Fire Exit Routes & Assembly Point signs
Tell occupants how to get out of a building in case of fire, where the fire exits are, and where they should gather during an evacuation. They also include signs which instruct occupants to keep fire exits clear and accessible.
Fire Safety Location signs
Shows where to find fire-fighting equipment such as fire extinguishers, hose reels and dry risers, as well as pointing out the location of fire alarm call-points for raising the alarm.
Warnings and Prohibitions
These signs warn occupants of potential fire risk, such as highly flammable materials, or give instructions ‘not to do’ something which could spark a fire. An obvious example of this is the ‘No Smoking’ sign.
