Even regular customers or employees, who might know your building inside and out, could panic in the event of a fire or other source of danger. Flustered, snap-decisions could exacerbate the situation. By installing clearly visible signs that give straightforward direction throughout your building and towards the exits, you can rest easy knowing that everyone is provided with the necessary means for escape if a fire erupts.
In addition to clearly marked exit signs, there are other types of warning signs to consider for your building. For example, you should consider signs that label flammable materials that might be present on the property. You should also have signs that remind people of important safety precautions to take during a fire. For example, we carry signs that remind people to avoid using elevators during emergencies.
If your building is already equipped with the optimal amount of signage for fire safety, you should continue to monitor the placement and visibility of signs and be sure that they are as effective as can be. Rather than signs that are slapped around in random areas of the building, they should be part of a comprehensive and well-designed plan for evacuation, complete with maps of optimal escape routes for individual rooms. You should also inspect each sign to make sure they have the correct markings, symbols, and text, and make sure they are compliant with ADA regulations.
