Exit Signs 

When seconds count and you need to exit quickly - don't get stuck inside because you can't find the exit sign. Per OSHA Standards 1910, "Each exit route must be adequately lighted so that an employee with normal vision can see along the exit route and each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading "Exit."

Ensure others can promptly locate all Exits with Exit Signs. Mount Glow-In-The-Dark Exit Signs so others can read your message during a power outage. Inform visitors and employees the direct of the emergency exits with arrows printed on the Exit Signs. Place No Exit signs on doors in hallways leading to exit and eliminate confusion.

  • If an exit does not have a direct line of sight to the exit sign, signs must be posted along the exit access indicating the direction of travel to the nearest exit and exit discharge. The direction of travel to the exit or exit discharge must be clear.
  • Each exit sign must be illuminated to a surface value of at least five foot-candles by a reliable light source and be distinctive in color. Self-luminous or electroluminescent signs with a minimum luminance surface value of 0.06 are permitted.
  • Each exit sign must have the word "Exit" in letters at least four inches high and must have the lettering three-fourths of an inch wide.
