Watch this video

In this module, we have seen that:

  • Escape routes should be planned in consultation with the local fire authority and with reference to the workplace fire risk assessment.
  • An evacuation procedure cannot be considered reliable until it is exercised and has proved to be workable, typically through a fire drill.
  • Under the relevant fire safety legislation, emergency routes and exits must be provided where necessary with adequate emergency lighting.
  • All employees should be familiar with the procedures for operating the alarm.
