Fire Action signs

In order to conform to current UK legislation, buildings must display clear 
fire action signs and emergency exit signage.

They're designed to indicate the direction and location of the nearest exit should an emergency arise.

The EEC Directive (EEC/92/58) from 1992 introduced graphical symbols, or pictograms (the running man), as the main element of the fire safety sign, alongside simple text.
