This part of BS 5588 provided guidance for designers, the building construction team and building managements on incorporating into new buildings, or buildings that were being altered, measures that enabled disabled people to be assisted to safety in the event of a fire. It applied to buildings but not single-family dwelling houses, flats and maisonettes and buildings used as a house in multiple occupation.
This British Standard was not applicable to buildings purpose built for disabled people, including Health Care Premises which were and remain covered by specific guidance documents issued by Government Departments and NHS Estates.
