Mandatory notices help in preventing fires and in the eventuality of a fire limits the spread of fire by instructing occupants, be it in onboard ship or onshore locations, of the mandatory requirements within a fire safety policy. These notices should be displayed prominently and can be used as part of formal fire safety education and training. Mandatory action safety signs cover the whole range of personal protection equipment used to instruct workers to protect themselves appropriately in the workplace.

May 6th marks the first week of the 33rd annual International Code Council’s 2013 Building Safety Month, which sets out to raise awareness about building safety. In week one Fire Safety and Awareness is the theme and why we’d like to bring your attention to how fire equipment is being rendered useless. How? Because fire safety equipment becomes hidden in the “everyday” of the workplace, or obscured in an emergency by smoke or a power outage. That is why this week we would like to discuss fire safety equipment location and identification. Last Year between 70,000 and 80, 000 workplace fires were reported in the U.S. alone, with over 200 death and 5,000 injuries received as a result. For this very reason, OSHA mandates that fire equipment not only be provided but also identified and maintained. Yet we here at JALITE have found that a disturbing number of employees have no idea where fire equipment is located under normal circumstances, never mind in an emergency. If employees cannot find fire equipment in an emergency then not only is the investment in the equipment wasted, but so are those first minutes that could have saved lives. So what is there to do? Over the past 30 years, JALITE has trained fire professionals on how to provide a low cost solutions that identifies life saving fire equipment, especially in an emergency. Our photoluminescent Fire Safety Signs are guaranteed to shine with exceptional brightness and long lasting illumination no matter the circumstance.

ISO 15370 was the first International Standard for escape route lighting and is commonly known as LLL - Low Location Lighting. ISO 16069 Safety Wayguidance Systems (SWG) followed later for the built environment and laying down principles for design. This Standard was used by New York City as the basis for technical recommendations for stairwell egress systems now required by law for tall buildings.
Luminous Egress Path Marking will significantly improve the means of egress provisions in tall buildings and be of great assistance to evacuees in case of emergency or power loss. The non -electrical safety wayguidance system basis from ISO 16069 is still the technical base and root for the luminous egress path system and JALITE has been at the forfront of all these developments. JALITE products are installed in the vast majority of the tall buildings in New York City and performance over the last 6 years since installation has been second to none. Jalite is the obvious choice for building owners and facilty managers requiring to meet IBC/ICC Code 2009 Section 1024.
