Learn about safety
Within the Christmas Season, it’s easy to get caught up in all the little things and forget about what’s important. According to FEMA, statistics show that the largest amount of structural fires happen within the Fall and Winter months (which would be from October to March). As of 2010, winter residential building fires estimated an average of 945 deaths, 3,825 injuries, and $1,708,000,000 in property damage. To limit the risks from your office decorations and to find out how to prevent a fire this season FEMA has some tips you can find by going to their website. From all of us at Jalite to you, have a Happy and Safe Christmas!
In a real fire, smoke is not as you see it in the movies. This film simulates a real warehouse fire, where Styrofoam cups in cardboard boxes are the fuel. (Styrofoam and cardboard are widely used in many packages from toys to electronics.) While the narrator points out many of the dangers and potential outcomes, she does not draw your attention to the decreasing visibility and loss of light in this short 3 minute fire. Notice at the start you’re able to see the room and light behind the two stacks of product. Then how after one and a half minutes you’re almost unable to see the room and after 2 minutes you’re barely able to make out the light fixture itself. The question of the narrator is “Does your facility have sprinklers?” a good question no doubt, but I would also add, “Does your facility have proper low level emergency escape route lighting?” When the lights go out, whether due to power failure or smoke, ours turn on. Contact Jalite to find a local distributor to schedule an audit and review of your facility or a detailed survey.

JALITE pionneered the application of photoluminescent safety way guidance systems in mass transport railways with research carried out with London Underground in the early 90's. A full scale egress exercise with wayguidance lines on the wall and platform was made giving egress speeds typical of ordered evacuation even under complete power loss situation.
JALITE IMO Signs are produced to meet and exceed the requirements for onboard signing according to SOLAS regulations. JALITE participates in the key National and International Standards and Technical Committees to set standards for safety signs in all applications of fire and safety and health at work. Please see the JALITE dedicated web sites for IMO Signs and Fire Control Symbol signs at www.jalite-marine.com and www.jalitemarine.com
Prohibition fire safety signs are used to enforce control risk measures by identifying specific forbidden behaviour to reinforce and complement formal training. Of course, in fire safety management as well as under Health and Safety regulations in the work place it is essential to prohibit and restrict behaviour that can create a fire risk or a risk of injury. JALITE photoluminescent signs are very conspicuous in all lighting conditions and attract attention hence adding to their effectiveness. JALITE signing provided immediate, visible proof to employees and inspectors of the seriousness of the safety policy and practices in an enterprise.
