Reception Safety Signs, Fire-fighting & PPE Product Guide |

Your Essential Product Placement Guide to Reception Desk Safety

As the first point of contact for visitors and contractors, and a key thoroughfare for staff, important health and safety information should be communicated in your reception area.

There are some basic requirements that must be adhered to when setting up or refitting waiting rooms, receptions and entrances.

Minimum Legal Requirement for Reception Safety

  • Emergency exits must be clearly marked and unobstructed
  • Fire equipment must be available and prominently positioned
  • All visitors and contractors are required to sign in to enable a full and accurate role call upon emergency evacuation
  • Emergency procedures should be communicated, including actions to be taken and assembly point(s) upon which to congregate in the case of fire
  • All fire doors should be identified and kept closed or fitted with an automatic closing device
  • It should be clear how to raise the alarm in case of fire
  • You must display the Health and Safety Law Poster where workers can easily see it, or provide a pocket guide for every employee

Additionally, there are several other steps that can be taken to increase safety on your premises.

Recommended Best Practice

  • Health and safety information, such as smoking policies or the need to wear PPE, should be communicated
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE) for visitors should be made available, if required
  • Visitors and contractors should be issued with identification badges
  • Alarm points should be covered with stoppers to avoid accidental operation and vandalism
  • Fire evacuation documentation should be easily accessible and stored in a prominent place. In the event of fire alarms or external audits, having your Fire Safety Log Book to hand is essential. Store in a Metal Fire Document Cabinet in your reception area

Our reception safety guide below shows just how easy it is to create a warm, and more importantly, safe welcome at your workplace.
