In addition to providing light for evacuation, an organised installation of luminaires serves to give a sense of orientation and direction. This is also true for normal lighting. Emergency lighting can be integrated into the normal lighting installation if required. Staircases The lighting of staircases must be given careful consideration, particularly if there are changes of direction at short intervals. Lighting schemes designed for appearance only may combine visual confusion with poor visibility.

The ventilation strategy should be based on a risk assessment under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1994 (80). Design guidance is given in Guide B3 (77). A further method has been suggested (81) which is intended for use where the pollution sources are known but (a) the emission rates of specific malodourous pollutants cannot be predicted, (b) their limiting concentrations are not known, or (c) odours are likely to result from complex mixtures of contaminants. Further research will be required to establish benchmark criteria.
