Learn about safety
JALITE is associated with a number of companies that offer professional and thorough risk assessment advice and guidance and in particular are capable of carrying out a fire safety sign survey according to Standards and good practice. Further information can be found from Means of Escape Publications Ltd at www.means-of-escape.com
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.
May13th marks week two of the International Code Council’s Building Safety Month focusing on Disaster Safety and Mitigation. With hurricane season being less than two months away, JALITE wants to know: As an employer, are you prepared to keep your employees safe during a disaster? NYU Hospital thought it was prepared when it installed backup generators. During 2012’s deadly Hurricane Sandy, which claimed the lives of almost 300 people and left over 8 million people without power, over 200 patients in NYU hospital were forced to be evacuated when their backup generators failed. With a hospital plunged into darkness, some patients had to be carried down 15 flights of stairs with only a flashlight to guide them. As we’ve mentioned before in our article about “slips, trip, and falls”, visual impairment when walking down stair is one of the leading causes of workplace injuries; a task made even more challenging when done in the dark. NYU wasn’t the only hospital evacuate in the darkness. In fact, several NYC hospitals were also evacuated due to power failures. With over 178 million power outages each year in the US, how do you safely evacuate a building? JALITE egress markers and stair markers are manufactured to guide you to safety under any circumstances; our photoluminescent technology makes is clear to see in even the darkest conditions.

JALITE, as a founder member of the Photoluminescent Safety Products Association, can be proud of the achievements over the last 20 years with an ongoing dedication to the promotion and development of photoluminescent products in safety applications.

There are two types of photoluminescence and these are fluorescence and phosphorescence. Fluorescent materials absorb light and then emit light instantaneously at a different wavelength. Phosphorescent materials absorb light of short wavelength and then emit light slowly over time also at a different, longer wavelength. It is often the case that the two photoluminescent phenomena can occur at the same time and indeed JALITE produce special high visibility products that are highly conspicuous in both the "daylight" and dark condition to improve visibility of escape paths.These are shown in the picture above this article. Typical safety grade phosphorescent materials absorb in the UV, Blue light visible region (300 - 450nm) of the spectrum and emit in the yellow green (500- 600nm). JALITE materials are covered by the technically correct term phosphorescent. The energy needed to activate it is supplied by common light sources such as daylight, ordinary tungsten filament and the most effective fluorescent lights with a high colour temperature. Under sudden power loss situations, the material immediately appears very bright and is conspicuous at a distance, providing an effective, bright contrast for text and graphical symbols and ensuring that safety messages are quickly recognised. This assists people to orientate themselves so that they can react effectively and evacuate efficiently. JALITE materials are designed specifically to maximize both high initial brightness and persistence which is often expressed as long after glow.. Furthermore, as for the flagship products JALITE AAA and JALITE SB they can be charged easily at low illumination and with short exposure times to light energy.
The Health and safety sign association (HSSA) has two basic aims as follows create greater safety through the proper use of safety and other statutory signs. develop and maintain industry standards and act as an industry voice to those formulating standards and legislation internationally. www.hssa.co.uk
