Exits and Corridors

The Hazard:

In an emergency, corridors must allow for rapid movement of people to evacuate safely. Reduced widths or obstructions can become an impediment.

Fire doors are installed to protect occupants using exits and corridors from fire and smoke during a fire. It is critical that they operate properly and are closed at all times. Fire doors are identified by signage, and all stairway doors are fire doors.

Lighted EXIT signs are installed throughout buildings to identify exits for emergency evacuation. These signs are illuminated and will operate from emergency power if building electrical systems fail.

What you can do:

Don't obstruct or block exit doors or exit signage!

It is important to not place anything within the exit path or anywhere that it might reduce the width of doorways or corridors. Never place anything in corridors without specific approval. Please carefully review the Corridor Use Exemption form (Word) before placing items within corridors.

Never block open a fire door or place any object nearby that might interfere with the door closing properly. If doors are discovered to be damaged, or if they do not close properly, contact Facilities immediately for repair.

EXIT signs should never be covered or obstructed in order to be available during an emergency. If signs appear damaged, or if they are not illuminated, contact Facilities immediately for repair.
