Fire precautions in the design, construction and use of buildings - Part 8: Code of practice for means of escape for disabled people

Executive summary

Code of practice for means of escape for disabled people from fire in buildings.

Abstract

This part of BS 5588 provides guidance for designers, the building construction team and building managements on incorporating into new buildings, or buildings that are being altered, measures that enable disabled people to be assisted to safety in the event of a fire. It applies to buildings except single-family dwelling houses, flats and maisonettes and buildings used as a house in multiple occupation.

This British Standard is not applicable to buildings purpose built for disabled people, including Health Care Premises which are covered by specific guidance documents issued by Government Departments and NHS Estates.

People with learning difficulties are not catered for in this standard, as they need to be treated no differently from children or the very elderly with regards to their needs.
