Whether you’re a new business owner, or just looking to improve your facilities, it is vital that you make sure your shop, office, building or premises have the right precautions in case of a fire. Under the Fire Safety Order, individuals must keep their businesses safe by undertaking a fire risk assessment and making suitable changes to ensure the safety of themselves, their employees and the building.

Here is a guide to some of the safety equipment that you can buy to ensure your business and anybody inside is safe in case of a fire.

Fire Alarms

Fire alarms are a great way to alert people to a fire. They’re especially helpful for large businesses, so an entire building can quickly be made aware of a fire. Some models can detect fire and smoke automatically, triggering the alarm and alerting the emergency services quickly.

Fire Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers are one of the best ways to fight fires. But you have to be wary of the types of fires that occur in your building. There are six different classes of fire, with eight different versions of fire extinguishers to help combat them. A fire risk assessment will help you know which type of extinguisher would be most useful for your business.


In the case of a fire, it is important to know how to get out of the building safely. Fire safety signs are a great way to do this, using plain and straightforward signage to lead people to safety. All signage should also be illuminated to work in the dark, so a person can easily find their way out even if they can’t see anything else.

Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is important during a fire, as the power to your building may be cut automatically. Emergency lighting is designed to work even when the mains power is out, usually running on a separate network or charged by solar power. It can help illuminate dark spaces and safe routes to exit the building.
