BS 5499-10:2006 Safety signs, including fire safety signs. Code of practice for the use of safety signs, including fire safety signs

BS 5499-10:2006 improves public safety by providing guidance on the use of safety signs and fire safety signs and is intended to be applied in situations in which a formal risk assessment has established the need for safety signs.

Safety signs using graphical symbols provide important benefits in the field of communication. Effectively used they can:

  • Provide information in a compact form
  • Provide information in a form that is independent of language
  • Have visual impact
  • Guide the viewer to a desired outcome or appropriate decision.

BS 5499-10:2006 provides guidance on how to select, install, position and maintain safety signs conforming to BS 5499-1 and BS 5499-5, excluding escape route signs, to present specific safety information.  It also satisfies the requirements of the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 and existing fire safety legislation.

BS 5499-10:2006 is intended to assist:

  • building owners
  • facilities managers
  • safety managers
  • others responsible for selecting and installing safety signs.

This code of practice reflects best practice and shows how to use safety signs in a standardized manner to ensure consistent application throughout a particular environment or an entire organization.

Properly used, the safety signs can provide information in a compact form that is independent of language has visual impact and guide the viewer to a desired outcome or appropriate decision.

Safety signs can make a major contribution to good communication and the development of good safety culture.
