BS 5499-4:2000 Safety signs, including fire safety signs. Code of practice for escape route signing

Recommendations and guidance on the selection and use of escape route signs.

This British Standard, a part of the BS 5499 series, provides guidance on the selection and use of escape route signs conforming to BS 5499-1.

This British Standard satisfies the requirements of the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 and existing fire safety legislation. It gives advice on the use of the appropriate graphical symbol, the use of supplementary text to assist in the interpretation of signs and the use of arrows to provide additional directional information.

This standard does not stipulate if and when escape route signs will be required.

This standard applies to premises where the formal risk assessment carried out under management of health and safety, and in particular The Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations as amended, has indicated a need for escape route signs to form an integral part of normal working procedures.

This standard assumes that the risk assessment or the requirement of an enforcing authority has established a need for escape route signing.

This standard is intended to cover the use of escape route signing systems within premises.

This standard provides recommendations for the selection of the appropriate type of sign, the location of signs, mounting positions, lighting and maintenance. The recommendations within this standard cover high-mounted signs.

This standard does not cover determination of the need for escape route signing.
