Emergency Exit Signs - OSHA and Fire Code Building Requirements

Emergency Exit Signs

Emergency exit signs are placed within businesses in order to guide the occupants of a facility to an exit during the event of an emergency evacuation. During a fire, earthquake, or other evacuation emergency - it would be difficult to find a lit exit without a guide or a sign. Therefore, exit signs are placed over doorways to the outside, stating "EXIT" in red or green lettering.


Why does my business require emergency exit signs?

Emergency exit signs are required for any business that has occupants inside of their facility. When employees or customers are within a business, they would need to have safety measures provided for them so that they may easily escape the building during the event of an emergency. Emergency exit signs are required by OSHA as well as building fire code and state/local laws. Providing these for your business occupants ensures safety during an emergency evacuation procedure.
