Description

This British Standard, a part of the BS 5499 series, specifies requirements for safety signs using the system of geometric shapes and safety colours specified in BS 5499-1. It is applicable to signs providing information on the actions to be taken to prevent, or reduce the risk of, accidents, for warning of hazards and for dealing with certain emergencies including the identification of escape routes and the location of fire equipment.

Signs specified as Category C signs are judged by Technical Committee PH/8 to require improvements to their graphical symbols as well as further education of intended viewers before they can be registered as approved safety signs.

This standard does not cover:

  • a) road traffic signs;
  • b) public information symbols;
  • c) International Maritime Organisation symbols;
