    The one with just the running man, or the one with the running man, and the flames behind him? (It's just I would use the second one in my premises if I was running my own business).

    The first is just an emergency exit sign whereas the second is a fire exit sign. Presumably the second directs the person to go through a fire-resistant door, providing extra safety.

    Interestingly, when I have had a look at the TSR offices on Google Street View, (yes there is imagery for it! :rofl:) their fire exit signage appears to be the second one with the flames on.

    No, the flames symbol doesn't mean extra safety, it's just that the fire exit sign with the flames symbol added on is most commonly used in hospitals, but sometimes some non-medical premises use the signage with the flames symbol added, such as the TSR offices as I mentioned earlier.
