The COVID-19 outbreak has many of us working from home. Not being able to be present at the workplace means there are some tasks you just might not be able to get to. So if you’re working from home and you’re unable to get to your usual tasks, now might be a good time to check your fire evacuation maps. Here’s a few things to look for to make sure your maps are safe.
DO ALL OF YOUR BUILDINGS HAVE EVACUATION MAPS?
Many buildings are required by law to have various safety maps readily available either in an EAP, on the walls, or both. No matter your local requirements, it’s always important to be prepared for building emergencies. Make sure that you have evacuation maps for every room of every building within your organization. Get in contact with our team and we’ll make the process seamless, your buildings safe, and your maps NFPA/ICC compliant.
Are Your Evacuation Maps Up-To-Date?
Check that all of your safety maps are using up-to-date floor plans. A good way to do this is to check the date that the map was created and compare it to the latest updates or construction of the building. If there have been any modifications or if there has been any construction to the building since the map was last updated, then its time to get your maps up to date.
Partnering with Building Maps for your safety mapping needs means quick and easy updates to your maps. Just send us the updated floor plans and we will update your maps for you. Our team also sends bi-annual reminders to existing and past customers on updating their safety maps. Our goal is to take the stress and burden of updating your maps off your back.
Are The Maps on Your Walls Properly Oriented?
Are the maps on your wall oriented in a forward facing direction based on where it’s placed? Many evacuation maps don’t hold up in emergencies because they’re uniformly created to face north. When evacuations maps are properly oriented, finding the right egress route is quicker and easier.
The Building Maps team orients every map in a forward-facing direction, so you can have peace of mind that your planning efforts will save lives if emergency strikes.
