Solution Focus: REAL Safe Escape Markers
The marking of escape routes on industrial and off-shore facilities has one purpose only: Rapid evacuation to a safe area!
Emergency evacuation plans must be in place to prepare workers for emergencies – but also to keep organisations compliant with OSHA regulations. Training and having clear, visible escape routes can mean the difference between life and death in an emergency that requires an evacuation.
Our award-winning solution for effective marking of Escape Routes comes with clear guidance of direction to muster points. It is a cost efficient, tried and tested solution for the off-shore, industrial, and maritime sectors.
A few years ago, one of our biggest clients; Maersk Oil (now TotalEnergies), approached us with a challenge. The authorities had issued them with an injunction regarding unclear, painted escape routes. Together with the client, we developed our REAL Safe Escape Markers. Our Markers have replaced the very unsafe procedure of painting escape routes onto gratings and walkways; a practice that has been going on for decades.
In fact, we solved the task so well, that our Real Safe Escape Marker solution has been stipulated as the Best Practice method used by TotalEnergies for marking escape routes on their offshore facilities.
Real Safety has worked with TotalEnergies on supplying Real Safe Escape Markers for the Tyra Redevelopment project over a number of years. Check out Tyra Redevelopment project case study.
