Safety Signs

The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 came into force on April 1 1996, revised in 2009 and details the minimum requirements for the provision of safety signage in the workplace.

The regulations apply to all places and activities where people are employed and require employers to provide specific safety signage whenever there is a risk that has not been avoided or controlled by other means.

The fire safety signage Regulations state that:

  • Employers must use safety signs wherever there is a risk to health and safety which cannot be controlled by other means
  • Safety signs must be of a specified type
  • All signs must contain a pictogram; text only signs are no longer acceptable
  • Signs must be properly maintained and adequately lit
  • Employers must ensure that signs are understood by employees
