'Using self adhesive pavement marking signs is a more reliable way to mark emergency assembly point areas, because they require less maintenance than paint. This means in case of emergency, the signs are more likely to be legible,' says Cliff Lowe.

Stop-painting.com is dedicated to providing the most products to make facilities as safe as they can be and has introduced a new Custom Printed Pavement Sign to meet the safety needs of a variety of facilities. Safety is not only important in the facility, but outside of the facility as well. This element of safety is most necessary in case of an emergency situation. OSHA requires that every employer have an action plan that all the employees are aware of. In case of a fire or other emergency that requires evacuation, the plan crumbles once the employees exit the facility. Where do the employees go from there? Stop-painting.com has answered that question for one facility that saw this deficit in their evacuation plan.
Cummins Turbo Technologies in Ladson, South Carolina saw a need for equipping the outside of their facility. They, together with Stop-painting.com, created a custom pavement marking sign to fit their needs. Emergency Assembly Point Signs like this can be designed to mark meeting areas upon exiting the building. They can also be used to mark routes to safe areas in case of emergency. These custom signs can be used for non-emergency purposes as well, such as marking parking spots or no smoking areas. These pavement marking signs are custom ordered, so the options are endless.
When areas are properly marked, emergency situations are less frantic because each employee knows their responsibilities and how to proceed.

Being prepared for an emergency situation one of the best ways to insure the safety of a facility and its’ employees. OSHA requires a system for accounting for personnel following an evacuation. Marking the pavement outside of a facility is the most logical way to direct traffic and manage the masses of people exiting the facility. The Custom Printed Pavement Signs have the opportunity to meet a variety of needs on the exterior of a facility.
