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.
Bars and nightclubs all around the world are under close scrutiny after a fire broke out in Brazil’s Kiss Nightclub, killing over 230 people. The fire, which was started by pyrotechnics set off by a band performing at the club, bared an eerie resemblance to the now infamous nightclub fire that occurred just 10 years ago. On February 20th, 2003 a rock and roll themed club in West Warwick, Rhode Island called Station Nightclub was hosting the band Great White when the band's manager set off pyrotechnics. Although the band had set off these pyrotechnics inside of other venues, the Station’s low and flammable ceiling was quickly set ablaze by a spark that quickly engulfed the nightclub and everyone inside. 100 people lost their lives in the fire, with many more seriously injured. With Kiss Nightclub fire last month and the 10th anniversary of the Station Nightclub fire this week, can we really say that nightclubs have become safer in the last ten years? While many sites offer helpful tips for patrons, such as the NFPA which urges club-goers to check for exits and be aware of their surroundings, owners and employees also need to be aware of imminent danger. Bouncer Online offers 8 tips for owners and employees to ensure that everyone has a safe evening. Their tips include making sure that the club is not over crowded and checking that all emergency exits are clearly labeled and easily accessible; two safety violations that experts say most commonly lead to a high death toll in theses nightclub tragedies. Ensure your nightclub clients are keeping the customers in your community safe, provide them with Jalite Safety signs such as our UL Listed EXIT Sign, and door hardware signs. When the lights go out, ours go on.™ Way-guidance floor signs and notices to Keep Exits Clear are also to be advised. All will shine up so nicely with Night club blue lights!!
Safety Way Guidance Systems are defined in ISO 16069 as system to provide conspicuous and unambiguous information and sufficient visual cues to enable people to evacuate an occupied area in an emergency along a specified escape route by using a comprehensive arrangement of visual components, signs and markings. Non-electrical safety way guidance systems use JALITE photoluminescent components and offer a safe guard against normal power loss and the possible failure of electrical emergency lighting. ISO 16069 gives the comprehensive group of way guidance Exit signs to be used to lead people effectively along an escape route to the final Exit and to the assembly point.

The arrival of new pigments in the 1990's has led to exciting developments for our industry. These new pigments based on alkali earth aluminates doped with rare earth elements have produced the tools for JALITE to design and produce a full range of products to meet all means of escape needs. This New and advanced technology has allowed JALITE to introduce JLUME photoluminescent materials that produce exceptionally long luminance decay characteristics compared to standard photoluminescent materials. These materials are suitable for high risk areas where egress may be slow or where light levels are lower. JLUME Plus is now well progressing and JALITE will be pushing Standards further for Class E materials in 2006 and for future F and G classes as technology and economics improve. JALITE uses its own proprietary technology for pigments and is fully licensed to use patented technology in the field. Users of high performance photoluminescent materials should assure themselves that any suppliers can produce evidence that they are not infringing current patents, as the application in safety products is also claimed in current patents.
