OSHA Regulations

OSHA Regulations

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.

Safety Way guidance research in Canada

Safety Way guidance research in Canada

The Publication of research findings from the first real evacuations on stairwells by the late Dr Guylene Proulx was a milestone in the development of photoluminescent safety way guidance systems. With the research carried out in the UK at the Building Reseach Establishment, under the leadership of Dr Gerry Webber the basis for standards such as BS 5266 - 6 and then ISO 16069 Safety Way guidance systems was given. JALITE has actively and continually supported research in the field and is absolutely committed to support claims of benefits of photoluminescent safety products with hard data.

Photoluminescent Exit Signs

Photoluminescent Exit Signs

Many people think that photoluminescent safety signs are only for marking the Exit door on escape paths, however they provide complete direction information along the escape path at high and low locations and alongside way guidance lines provide a complete safety way guidance system. Such systems have been installed in very high profile areas such as all of New York tall buildings, in the Pentagon and other sensitive areas where disaster preparedness has unfortunately become essential.Furthermore, they are used in millions of other smaller but also critical means of escape throughout the world. Time and time again, in fire and major disasters, the use of photoluminescent systems, completely independant of power sources other than the normal lighting, are proven to be effective to aid evacuation and saves lives. Under any type of formal fire risk assessment the requirement for photoluminescent Exit signs and Exit direction signs is immediately identifiable for most all the built environments and structures.
