The 'Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005' section 14 relates to 'Emergency routes and exits' below is an overview of the legislation which should be read in conjunction with the Fire Safety Order.
Where necessary in order to safeguard the safety of relevant persons, the responsible person must ensure that routes to emergency exits from premises and the exits themselves are kept clear at all times.
Emergency routes and exits must be indicated by signage, emergency doors must open in the direction of escape. Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in the case of failure of their normal lighting.
Emergency Lighting plays an important role in ensuring the safety of the occupants within the building. In the event of a Fire or power failure they will provide illuminated paths to guide the occupants out of the building safely.
