Tunnel safety and evacuation route markings have received much needed attention since a series of tragedies in Europe and elsewhere heightened the need for escape route lighting and improved wayfinding signs.
The JALITE fire safety sign audit requires a close examination of the occupied area in order to assess that risks have been identified and mitigated with safety signs designed to good practice. Furthermore, that the fire safety signs are positioned appropriately and are clearly visible and understandable under the expected conditions of observation. A fire safety sign survey is an integral part of the required formal and legally enforceable fire risk assessment and can assist this process tremendously. For more information about the JALITE Fire Safety sign survey and how it forms a key part of Fire Safety Policy do not hesitate to ask for our free guides or contact our sponsored magazine and publications at www.means-of-escape.com It is also a requirement to ensure that all employees are given training and education to understand the safety signs displayed and to behave accordingly. JALITE produce a full range of training products to assist in this process.
Warning sign in fire safety is for the identification of hazards on and adjacent to the Means of Escape: These JALITE signs will help to identify hazards such as trip hazards, flammable and hazardous substances and electrical hazards on and near the means of escape route. It is particularly important that these hazards are identified to protect anyone using these routes including any fire fighters that may be on the premises. All JALITE photoluminescent safety signs provide extra visible cues in and adjacent to escape routes and help orientation in an emergency. They are a key element of education and training and being conspicuous in both the light and dark surroundings are a key reminder of safety. Each JALITE sign in the work or public environment is a beacon of light in power failure and an immediate, visible sign of an active safety policy.

To maintain a safe work place, and comply with OSHA requirements, employers must provide the proper signs to indicate the exit route, and the safety equipment installed in their facility. For example Section 1910.37(b) which states: "Each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading 'Exit.' " or Section 1926.34(b): " 'Exit marking.' Exits shall be marked by a readily visible sign. Access to exits shall be marked by readily visible signs in all cases where the exit or way to reach it is not immediately visible to the occupants". Ask your local Jalite Distributor for our OSHA compliant EXIT sign to ensure your workplace is compliant, even if there is a loss of power! Best practice in response to risk assessment would demand a comprehensive array of directional signs meeting OSHA requirments to ensure that the means of escape is secured at all times. JALITE Photoluminescent products add that extra and essential feature of mitigating the risk of failure of emergency lighting or protecting occupied areas not requiring such provisions. Furthermore, they provide the means to provide directional information duplicated at low location providing escape path information economically and without the need for heavy costs of wiring and maintenance. OSHA regulations also require safety signs and notices to be used to reduce risk by reinforcing training and education, to provide warnings of risks in the workplace and protective measures, including the prohibition of behaviour likely to create a risk of any kind.
