As a commercial or industrial business, it is a legal requirement to have an Fire Evacuation Plan visible to all your employees, visitors and staff.
Today’s legislation stipulates that it is no longer the duty of the Fire Service to make sure the workplace is safe. The duty now lies solely with the ‘responsible person’.
For small premises this could take the form of a simple fire action sign posted in positions where everyone can read it and become familiar with its contents.
For a larger building, or a premises with higher risks you will need more detailed emergency evacuation plan which takes into account the findings of your fire risk assessment.

As each building is different there is no ‘one-size fits all’ evacuation procedure template. Your fire evacuation plan should indicate the location of all fire exits, escape routes and assembly points as well as instruct on fire safety procedures.
