There is now an ISO Standard for such plans including a recommendation for photoluminescent material with no less than Class C ISO 17398 performance – ISO 23601 – Safety identification – Escape and evacuation plan signs The following is the abstract for users: ISO 23601:2009 establishes design principles for displayed escape plans that contain information relevant to fire safety, escape, evacuation and rescue of the facility's occupants. These plans may also be used by intervention forces in case of emergency. These plans are intended to be displayed as signs in public areas and workplaces. ISO 23601:2009 is not intended to cover the plans to be used by external safety services nor detailed professional technical drawings for use by specialists. Escape and evacuation plan signs should be designed by experienced designers to make floor plans visible and legible, easy to identify and read and oriented correctly. JALITE can make your plans effective and reflect best current practice. They can be reproduced on high quality Class C photoluminescent material according to ISO 23601:2009 or sub surface printed on fire resistant polycarbonate or PVC. Call us or register
JALITE nosing for the leading edge of the stair fulfill OSHA Requirement for stairs as well as providing the key element for stairwell egress path marking under IBC/IFC code: 1910.24(f) "Stair treads." All treads shall be reasonably slip-resistant and the nosings shall be of nonslip finish. Welded bar grating treads without nosings are acceptable providing the leading edge can be readily identified by personnel descending the stairway and provided the tread is serrated or is of definite nonslip design. Rise height and tread width shall be uniform throughout any flight of stairs including any foundation structure used as one or more treads of the stairs. To fulfill its responsibility to provide a safe workplace, OSHA requires that stair treads be reasonably slip-resistant and that in particular the stair nosing have a slip resistant finish. In addition the leading edge of each step should be readily identified by someone descending the stairwell. JALITE stair nosing and thresholds not only provide a slip resistant finish but are highly visible under normal conditions and power loss conditions, ensuring that your facility does not just comply, but exceeds the OSHA requirements.

There are over 1 million people injured and 12,000 fatalities due to falling down stairs each year; in people ages 64-84, falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths. In addition, businesses pay roughly over $11 billion a year on workplace accident. Statistics indicate the problem is actually getting worse, with the number of injuries from falling down stairs doubling in the last 10 years. Compare this to the number of fire injuries, which has been reduced by half, and one can see this issue must be addressed. There is a misconception that falling down stairs is due to poor traction, however building consultant expert and researcher Jake Pauls has found that it has more to do with people not properly seeing the stairs and misstepping. Experts suggest that you can prevent a misstep not only by improving lighting conditions, but also by marking the nosing of every step to make them more visible. That is why JALITE offers our range of stair markers, engineered to be visible in both normal and emergency conditions. For more information contact JALITE today.
