    5 Sustainable Building Materials You Need to Know
    Sustainable goals include improving the way people live and build while creating a lower impact on the environment and the ability for future generations to meet their own needs in times to come. Sound too good to be true? If you are in the construction industry, you know it’s a very real thing called sustainable building. More than just a trend, the sustainable building offers environmental, economic, and social benefits making it something that will become an integral part of the industry as a whole. These factors help in governing the building design, quality of architecture, technologies and processes, working conditions, and serve as the basis for sustainable construction. The construction itself focuses on seven core principles throughout the building life-cycle which are protecting nature, reducing the consumption of resources, reusing resources, using recyclable resources, eliminating toxins, applying life-cycle costing, and an emphasis on quality. Some key best practices in green building have quickly taken over, as well as green materials that will help further define sustainable construction in the future.

    The Future Is Green

    Construction materials made from scratch not only require a lot of energy but can create waste in the process. In order to reduce this footprint, using low-impact green building materials that are sourced from renewable sources with the ability to be recycled when the building has reached its lifespan is so important. Often green building materials are either produced via an innovative process that lower harmful emissions into the atmosphere or sourced from sustainable forests.

    Here are five sustainable building materials to know:

    1. Photoluminescent Exit Signs

    Photoluminescent technology is currently one of the only non-electric, non-radioactive options on the market for approved emergency exit signs, making it a top choice for sustainable construction and buildings emergency exit signage. Options like Jessup’s UL924 listed PF100 photoluminescent exit sign and PM100 photoluminescent exit sign are not only easy to install and maintenance free, but they are recyclable and last up to 25 years without using any electricity. During a blackout or fire, the stored energy in the photoluminescent sign will make it immediately start to glow to allow people to be safely guided to the nearest exit. As with all of Jessup Manufacturing GloBrite® exit signs, the PM100 and PF100 are tested to glow a minimum of 90 minutes in a power outage or when the lights go out when fully charged. Photoluminescent emergency exit signs use phosphor as their main ingredient, which has properties to absorb, store, and then emit light at a later time when previously exposed to light. Photoluminescent exit signs act like a sponge by absorbing and holding light energy, and then will slowly release it when needed over an extended period of time. This allows photoluminescent exit signs to be an excellent green building material product that is hassle-free and safe.

    Other facts to know about photoluminescent exit signs:

    • Builders can earn points towards LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) — the most widely used green building rating system in the world, by choosing photoluminescent exit signs and exit path markings.
    • Numerous U.S. building codes already require photoluminescent exit markings and signage.
    • According to Energy Star, if your building replaced 100 LED exit signs with eco-friendly photoluminescent exit signs, you would be looking at an energy cost savings of over $450 a year.
    • When choosing a photoluminescent exit sign make sure it is UL 924 Emergency Lighting and Power Equipment listed by UL, meets NFPA Life Safety Code 101, OSHA requirements and International Building and Fire Code 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018

    2. Bamboo

    Bamboo has got to be one of the most well-known green building material products on the market and for good reason. With the species able to regenerate at an exponential rate (in some cases 3 feet in 24 hours) and the fact that it can take a beating without needing to be replaced very often, it makes for a viable flooring or cabinet choice in buildings and can also contribute towards the allocation of LEED points for builders. Bamboo also takes less energy to transport than other comparable durable materials on the market due to its lightweight nature. However, it has been known to swell and even crack if it absorbs water and should never be installed without treatment to resist insects and rot. The fact that bamboo offers greater compressive strength than brick or concrete, looks beautiful, and is a rapidly renewable material makes it an excellent choice for a sustainable building material.

    3. Cork

    Similar to bamboo, cork is another quickly growing resource that builders can take advantage of when it comes to various parts of their construction process. Being extremely flexible and resilient, it makes for great floor tiles. Cork’s natural ability to absorb noise and shock make it an excellent green choice for insulation and sub-flooring. Another interesting fact about cork is when left uncoated, it is naturally fire resistant and does not release any toxic gases if burned. Because cork is primarily found in the Mediterranean does mean that shipping fees can become considerable. Luckily, cork is lightweight— meaning it takes less energy to ship it, and often this can offset the shipping fees. Cork does not rot or absorb water like bamboo but will become brittle over time.

    4. Recycled metal

    What’s old is new again. By taking metals like steel and aluminum and properly and efficiently reusing or recycling them into new products, it lowers their embodied energy, thus making them more sustainable. A metal like steel is endlessly recyclable (in fact it is North America’s #1 recycled material), nontoxic to humans or the environment, and uses relatively low energy to produce initially. Thanks to advances in manufacturing technology, the energy to produce raw steel has dropped 60% since 1960. Metals like this offer a strong, long-lasting, water, and pest resistant product in your building process. This makes metal an excellent choice for structural supports, building facades, and roofing. Additionally, check out the ways manufacturers are making steel even more sustainable:
    • Reusing the by-product gases from the furnaces as they are a direct fuel substitute.
    • Recapturing and cleaning CO2 by-products to make carbonated drinks.
    • Using electric arc furnaces for steel production which utilize 100% scrap metal. This means less energy than producing new steel.

    5. Precast concrete slabs

    Concrete is a natural choice for sustainable home construction. Limestone, the most abundant mineral on earth, is the predominant raw material found in concrete. Precast concrete slabs are generally produced via eco-friendly manufacturing processes offsite and then shipped in whole sections to the construction site. The outer layers usually envelop a lightweight filler, like foam insulation, or can be made entirely of concrete but have large, hollow air spaces, like concrete blocks. Even though it is heavy, it requires very little processing and can be produced in the specific quantities needed for each project, making its embodied energy noteworthy. Precast concrete slabs’ sustainability factor is even higher than many traditional poured concrete options because the slabs often take much less energy to produce and assemble. Because they are in a controlled environment, precast concrete also has the ability to cure in a controlled environment. Concrete poured on site is prone to improper curing which can lead to cracks and structural faults within the concrete and in some cases the need to demolish the concrete and start the entire process over again. Precast concrete slabs hold up to all kinds of weather, so they are commonly used for walls, building facades, and even floors and flat roofs. Concrete is also extremely energy efficient, so homes and buildings built with them enjoy a significant cut to their heating and cooling bills, plus require small-capacity HVAC equipment. As a highly affordable building material, the ability to be recycled, and energy efficiencies precast concrete slabs are worth considering for your next building project. Thanks to the increasing demand for green developments, eco-friendly building materials are becoming the standard. From photoluminescent exit signs to reclaimed metal, using sustainable building materials allow you to build structures with a lower carbon footprint and improved energy efficiency, all while saving costs, increasing quality and improving efficiencies in the construction process. Actively work with your city and state to implement sustainable practices in building and as an organization seek LEED certification. Also, understand who you are working with when you buy your products. If the producer and fabricator don’t follow strict procedures regarding reuse, waste disposal, and other key operations, the above materials are moot- so vet your vendor and their sources carefully. The shift to sustainability won’t happen overnight, but through proper research, innovation, and participation from stakeholders, it will move forward to help future generations.
  2. Biggest Slip and Fall Stories in the News
    Biggest Slip and Fall Stories in the News
    Slip and fall lawsuits are unfortunately all too common throughout the United States. While some are scams, many of them are very real as slip and falls are the number one cause of accidental injury, resulting in 20.8 percent of all emergency room visits. We are looking at several top slip and fall lawsuits making headlines that have been ongoing for years and are still waiting on judgments. Which way do you think they’ll go? Could they have been prevented with different slip and fall precautionary measures put in place?

    Case 1: Woman Suing McDonald’s Over Slip and Fall

    A woman claims she was injured after she allegedly slipped and fell on wet floors at a McDonald's in O’Fallon, Illinois. She filed a complaint on May 13, alleging negligence. In the suit, it states that she was a guest at the McDonald's on April 7 when she was allegedly injured due to a dangerous condition that had been left to exist. She claims she slipped and fell on wet floors, causing her to suffer severe and permanent injuries. The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide adequate warnings of the condition, failed to provide adequate and safe egress for guests on the property to maneuver and move about, and negligently permitted the presence of a condition causing unreasonable risk of harm. The plaintiff is seeking relief of more than $50,000. Our Restaurant Slip and Fall Prevention Tips: Nearly all restaurants have floor safety procedures in place, but whether they’re followed appropriately is another thing. Restaurants are commonly top offenders for slip and fall accidents so having your staff knowledgeable on the importance of these safety measures and trained on implementing them is important. Other best practices for preventing slip and fall accidents in restaurants include:
      • Slip-Resistant Flooring: With the floors of restaurants are constantly being hit with beverages, grease, or spilled food, the texture of your floors is very important. Having flooring that is slip-resistant will help with the daily hustle, including patrons and employees moving about.
    • Anti-Slip Film: Having an anti-slip film that is mop-friendly like our Safety Track 3500 Resilient Medium Grade anti-slip film is also helpful to have around beverage areas, sinks and in bathrooms to further help in preventing slip and fall accidents.
    • Use mats and rugs, but with caution: Mats and rugs are great to offer prevention, but if not properly maintained, they can actually be the cause of these accidents. Replace old and frayed rugs immediately, make sure they are not curling at the corners, and use a mat that either has a high-traction backing or put an anti-slip tape underneath it to prevent movement, such as those certified by the NFSI.

    Case 2: Slip and Fall Case Against Target Seeking $1.2 million Remanded Back to State Court

    On May 20, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania determined Target took too long to remove the plaintiff's slip-and-fall case to a federal court and granted her motion to remand it back to state court. The plaintiff sued Target in a Philadelphia County Court back in November 2018, saying she suffered injuries after she fell in a Target in 2017. She asked for more than $50,000, plus legal costs and delay damages. Target was served Dec. 24, 2018, and had until March 12 to respond. The plaintiff then followed up with a Case Management Conference memorandum that consisted of a demand for $1.2 million on March 4. On March 12, Target removed the case to federal court but filed the notice of removal after the allotted 30 days, causing the court to grant the plaintiff's motion. The plaintiff said she slipped on what she described as a “liquid” substance on the floor of a Target store and “suffered a cosmetic disfigurement and she may continue to suffer (the) same for an indefinite time in the future," according to the ruling.

    Our Retail Slip and Fall Prevention Tips: In retail stores, especially large ones like Target, it can be challenging to keep track of every nook and crannies in the store to make sure spills are promptly cleaned. It is important to make sure employees are doing rounds and alerting appropriate team members if liquids are spilled, so they can have signage put up immediately and take care of the potential hazard. Beyond that, additional products and practices that can help in preventing slip and fall accidents in retail include:

      • Keep your space clean. Cluttered floors, clothes off hangers, or boxes of unpacked merchandise on the floor are top offenders of trip and fall accidents in retail. Make sure employees keep areas tidy and at the end of their shift, organize the spaces for which they are responsible.
    • Proper products matter. Having the right products easily accessible plays a crucial role in preventing slip and fall accidents in retail stores. Providing wet floor signs, clean up supplies like paper towels and mops in a convenient location that all employees are aware of is important. Also, consider using a slip-resistant floor cleaner to further prevent any accidents from occurring.
    • If you have an uneven floor that changes in height, it is a good idea to use either a caution sign, caution tape or have railings in place. Always make sure to use a non-slip film in these areas because it is commonplace for a fall.

    Case 3: Vacationer Alleges Slip and Fall on Carnival Cruise Ship

    A vacationer alleges that he was injured aboard a Carnival cruise ship is suing the well-known cruise ship company. The plaintiff filed a complaint April 26 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Carnival Corporation, alleging negligence. The plaintiff alleges on Feb. 26, 2018, he was caused to slip and fall shortly after boarding the Carnival Inspiration. The fall occurred, the suit says, when Barrios went to the wrong muster station, causing the Carnival employee to lead the plaintiff to the correct one. The plaintiff further alleges he was holding the arm of his travel companion who was being pulled by the Carnival employee and the plaintiff fell on the stairs, resulting in injuries to his spine and causing him to lose enjoyment of life. Carnival filed an answer to the plaintiff’s allegations of negligence, arguing that Barrios' action was precluded in the plaintiff’s ticket. The defendant also alleged that they were not responsible for the plaintiff’s injury. The court has agreed with the plaintiff and decided to strike affirmative defenses two and seven, as stated by Carnival. The court believes the defendant's second defense impermissibly seeks to preclude the plaintiff’s ability to bring forth a negligence claim, which the defendant is not allowed to do. The seventh defense seeks to shift the blame for the incident to a third party, which is not permitted under general maritime law. The plaintiff asked that the defendant’s second and seventh defenses be struck. U.S. District Judge Federico A. Moreno heard the case. Our Cruise Ship Slip and Fall Prevention Tips: Unfortunately, wet surfaces make up 55% of all slip, trips, and falls in the hospitality industry and when on a cruise ship, it’s going to be wet sometime, somewhere during your stay onboard. That is one reason why cruise ships have to take extra precautionary measures to keep both employees and patrons safe. We have compiled a list of the top areas slip and fall accidents commonly occur on the cruise ship and what can be done to prevent them and protect those aboard.
    • Heavy-duty grit tapes need to be used. Grit tapes can withstand the elements the ocean brings aboard and should be used throughout the ship deck, on ramps, within dining quarters, bathrooms, and stair treads.
    • Wear proper footwear. Employees should all be required to wear slip-resistant shoes, and guests should be strongly encouraged to do the same. Having that extra traction can make a big difference if you hit a wet spot while walking.
    • Make sure you have adequate lighting. Dimly lit spaces are just waiting for accidents. With many of the ship-goers unfamiliar with the boat, it is especially important for cruise ships to have adequate lighting, especially in hallways, ramps, and in stairwells.
    As a business owner, it is essential to take precautionary measures and train your staff to know the right steps to take if a person on your property says they had a slip and fall accident. With more than 8.7 million people injured from a slip, trip and fall incidents every year in the United States, the threat is a very real one that could occur in your building, especially if you don’t take proper measures to prevent them.

  3. What You Need to Know About Photoluminescent Emergency Signage for Passenger Rail Cars
    What You Need to Know About Photoluminescent Emergency Signage for Passenger Rail Cars
    The American Public Transit Association (APTA) is known as the leader in advancing public transportation and setting the standards in creating public transportation that is available, accessible, and safe for all Americans in communities across the country. APTA has specific safety standards when it comes to all areas of public transportation, including bus, paratransit, light rail, commuter rail, subways, waterborne passenger services, and high-speed rail. This week we are taking time to help you navigate the specific photoluminescent emergency signage safety requirements for passenger rail cars. Photoluminescent emergency signage is now a requirement in all passenger rail equipment. It is important to have the correct photoluminescent product in its correct placement because when a rail car loses its power, this emergency signage will be the visible light to guide those on the train to safety.

    F.A.Q. on Photoluminescent Materials Used For Emergency Signage:

    What is photoluminescent material? Phosphor is the main ingredient found in photoluminescent materials, including photoluminescent emergency signage. Phosphor can absorb, store, and emit light at a later time when it is exposed beforehand to light. APTA states that photoluminescent material (which they call PL throughout their readings) is material that has the property of emitting light that continues for a length of time after excitation by visible or invisible light has been removed (i.e., self-illuminating).
    What is high-performance photoluminescent (HPPL) material? Throughout APTA's Passenger Rail Equipment Safety Standards when discussing photoluminescent safety signage, it references using high-performance photoluminescent material (HPPL). This is a photoluminescent material that is capable of emitting light at a very high rate and for an extended period of time. To meet HPPL standards, the material must have a minimum luminance value of 7.5 millicandelas per square meter (7.5 mcd/m2), for 1.5 hours after removal of the charging light source. Unless otherwise permitted in standard SS-PS-002-98, Rev. 3, the charging light source is specified as a fluorescent lamp with a color temperature of 4000-4500°K that provides an illuminance of no more than 1 fc on the test sample for a duration of no more than 1 hour. We know this may sound confusing. To make it simple, when looking for a photoluminescent material for your passenger rail emergency signage, be sure to check that the product meets their specific safety standards APTA SS-PS-002-98 (Rev.3) and APTA SS-PS-004-99 (Rev.2), like our Glo Brite® 7812 APTA compliant material. How can you ensure your HPPL system is getting adequately charged to perform when needed? To make sure your photoluminescent safety signage is ready to perform, your normal lighting system (i.e., light fixtures), needs to be located in the proximity of each HPPL component and oriented to ensure that the HPPL material is adequately exposed to charging light, according to APTA Safety Standards. These light fixtures located in the proximity of each HPPL system need to be specified so that their light-dispersion patterns provide the minimum illuminance levels at the surface of the component (check table located in section 2. 4.2 for details)

    Where should you apply photoluminescent emergency signage in passenger rail cars?

    APTA safety standards designate several areas that high-performance photoluminescent material should be used and how it should be applied. It is important to follow their requirements to ensure the safety of all employees and guests onboard. Location 1: Door Exit Handles, Latches or Operating Buttons All door exit handles, latches, or operating buttons should be marked with high-performance photoluminescent material using one of the following methods:
    • Outline stripping that is no less than 1 inch (2.54 cm) wide to the extent practicable around the perimeter of the opening device;
    • Area-wide pad that is applied to the door or door frame directly behind the handle or latch with no less than 16 square inches (103 cm2).
    Also, each door should be equipped with a separate manual override device for a power-operated door intended for emergency egress and should be marked with a sign/marking containing the words "Emergency Door Release," "Manual Door Release," or other similar wording. These signs or markings need to be placed at the manual door control or at an appropriate location in its immediate proximity. If it is not obvious where the manual release device is located relative to the door handle, latch or operating button, then a door emergency release locator sign needs to be posted. The manual door release locator sign(s) or marking(s) should consist of brief text, graphic arrow(s), or symbol(s) to direct passengers and crew members from the door control to the location of the manual door release. Location 2: Vestibule, End-Frame, and Side Doors Leading to the Exterior of the Car and Intended for Emergency Egress Passenger rail transit cars ordered on or after the adoption of these standards need to have HPPL material and follow these requirements:
    • Mark side door exit locations without independently powered emergency lighting.
    • Each side door opening intended for emergency egress leading to the exterior of the car shall be marked with a minimum of 144 square inches (929 cm2) of HPPL material placed no higher than 18 inches (45.7 cm) off the floor, with its lowest point no higher than 6 inches (15.2 cm) off the floor. This marking may be comprised of one or more panels placed either on the door and/or in its immediate vicinity. A door with two leaves that open for emergency egress is considered a single door opening. So, 144 square inches (930 cm2) of HPPL material is sufficient for that door opening.
    • To provide some illumination at the floor for passengers and crew members as they exit, to the extent practical, the material should not be placed on a door leaf/panel that is intended to open for emergency egress or on the part of a wall or partition that would be covered by a door leaf/panel in any position.
    • Signs and markings used to comply with the low-level egress path marking (LLEPM) requirements contained in the APTA Standard Rail Transit Vehicle Low Level Exit Path Marking may be counted toward this requirement to the extent that they meet the criteria noted above (e.g., HPPL door delineators required to meet the LLEPM requirements that are installed on the door 18 inches. off the floor would count as 36 square inches of the 144 square inches required).
    Location 3: Emergency Window Exits Ensure all emergency window exit markings are constructed of high-performance photoluminescent material.

    What should you look for when choosing a high-performance photoluminescent (HPPL) system?

    The manufacturer or supplier of the HPPL material should be able to provide independent laboratory certified test result reports showing that all tested samples of passive HPPL material, as used in the finished component configurations (including any cover or protective coating if used, but not including text or graphics), complies with the minimum luminance criterion of 7.5 mcd/m2 , after 1.5 hours, when tested according to the provisions of ASTM E-2073-07, Standard Test Method for Photopic Luminance of Photoluminescent (Phosphorescent) Markings, with the following three modifications:
    • Activation: The HPPL material shall be activated with a fluorescent lamp of 40 W or less and a color temperature of 4000-4500º K that that provides no more than 1 fc of illumination as measured on the material surface. The activation period shall be for no more than 1 hour.
    • Luminance: The photopic luminance of all specimens of the HPPL material shall be measured with a luminance meter as described in 5.2 (of ASTM E-2073), a minimum of 1.5 hours after activation has ceased.
    • Luminance in mcd/m2: The test report shall include a luminance measurement of 1.5 hours after activation has ceased.
    The manufacturer or supplier is required to have a minimum of one batch of material for signs and/or markings of a given type certified. Know that signs or markings of the same certified type of material can be sold to multiple customers, even with minor changes in text or typography. The color and contrast of your PL or HPPL material are also very important. APTA Safety Standards states that the lettering and pictogram(s) utilized on interior emergency exit signage or markings needs to be able to achieve a luminance contrast ratio of not less than 0.5, as measured by a color-corrected photometer. The document recommends that the color contrast choice for all new and replacement signage is red lettering/graphics on a light PL background, preferably with a matte finish, except for those instances in which bold contrast with the background on which the sign is placed would not be attainable. It states that having a contrasting border around the outer edge of the sign will also enhance visibility. The standard also notes that the more of the HPPL surface that is visible, the more conspicuous the resulting sign. It warns that graphics or heavy text covering the HPPL material will reduce the light output of the sign letters, and thus the conspicuity and legibility of the signs as well, even though the HPPL material passes the tests required. The Passenger Rail Equipment Safety Standards (PRESS) applies to all commuter rail programs, and you can read the entire PRESS program in detail here. Please contact us with any questions regarding photoluminescent safety signage for your passenger rail cars.
  4. Top 4 Places for Slip and Fall Accidents
    Top 4 Places for Slip and Fall Accidents
    Did you know that slip and falls are the number one cause of accidental injury, resulting in 20.8 percent of all emergency room visits? We are all accident prone, it's a fact of life. With slip and fall accidents bound to happen, all we can do is limit dangers and hazards around areas and learn how to protect ourselves in order to prevent these mishaps from occurring. Some places tend to be more notorious for slip and fall injuries, so we are taking a look at them on the blog today to see what can be done to prevent accidents before they occur and protect people who find themselves in these top places for slip and fall accidents.


    From small fishing boats to large cruise or naval ships, boating continually ranks as one of the top places to experience a slip and fall accident. Even the safest ships that follow all rules, regulations and technological innovations still have people experiencing slip and fall accidents while aboard. Why? Because when you combine sleek surfaces and the continuous wave motions, accidents are prone to occur. In fact, wet surfaces make up 55% of all slip, trips, and falls in the hospitality industry! By taking proper precautions, you can greatly decrease the risk that an accident will occur while onboard a boat.

    Tips to Prevent Boat Slip and Fall Accidents:

    • For indoor areas of the boat, utilize non-slip tape or a non-slip floor coating in the kitchen quarters where all food prep takes place. Jessup’s Flex Track offers a non-abrasive adhesive to prevent slip and falls and is still comfortable on bare feet.
    • For exterior parts of boats, consider a stronger grade of non-slip tape or adhesive such as the Safety Track® 3800 Series which can withstand saltwater and ultraviolet exposure.
    • Stairs need to have non-slip stair treads applied and handrails in place.
    • Specific areas of the boat that need non-slip tape include: ramps, stairs, baths, pools, and the boat deck.
    • Make sure proper signage is in place, including wet location exit signs for outdoor areas of the boat.
    • Make sure any rugs are secured to the floor to prevent tripping.
    • Check lighting in hallways and exterior to make sure areas are well lit.
    • Maintain a clean boat. Mop up wet areas and putting proper signage down immediately and remove clutter, cords or other potential tripping hazards.
    • Always wear shoes with friction while on a boat.
      The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) states that at least 43% of reported maritime injuries are a result of slip and fall accidents. Many boating slip and fall accidents can be preventing by taking the time to implement proper safety measures, offering better training for employees, and improving equipment maintenance.


    Because of all the grease, oil, liquid and food in restaurants they are a common offender for slip and fall accidents. Most restaurants take some measures to prevent slip and fall accidents and have floor safety procedures in place, but whether employees are following them appropriately is another question. Here are common best practices when it comes to slip and fall safety prevention at restaurants.

    Tips to Prevent Restaurant Slip and Fall Accidents:

    • Install slip-resistant flooring. Because the floors of restaurants are being hit with all sorts of liquids, the texture of the floors is extremely important in not only the back kitchen, but the dining and bathroom areas. Choosing a flooring that is slip-resistant will help with the daily hustle, including patrons and employees moving about.
    • Install an anti-slip film that is mop friendly to high traffic areas. Using a product like our Safety Track® 3500 Resilientâ„¢ Medium Grade anti-slip film around beverage areas, sinks, bathrooms, or in front of the stove can be an extra inexpensive barrier to further prevent slip and fall accidents.
    • Consider adding stair treads and ramp tread. Many people are moving around restaurants quickly, so if your establishment has stairs, consider adding stair treads as an added layer of protection.
    • Use a NFSI certified floor cleaner to clean your floors. This will ensure they are not slippery, but still perfectly clean.


    OSHA continually puts fall violations within the construction industry as one of their top offenders. In fact, within the construction industry alone 991 workers lost their lives on the job in 2016. Having a fall prevention program in place and implementing a workplace slip and fall training can help give employers and employees the necessary training and tools needed to recognize, assess, and control potential slip, trip, or fall hazards. Consider these tips when working to prevent construction site slip and fall accidents.

    Tips to Prevent Construction Site Slip and Fall Accidents:

    • Put a clear statement or policy in place regarding the company’s strategy behind your slip and fall program. Help employees understand the purpose of the program and what is expected of the employer and employee, including their responsibilities in slip and fall prevention.
    • Training your employees is the greatest way for them to feel confident in their daily duties. A slip and fall training should be part of all employee onboarding and a continual slip and fall education should be held daily, quarterly, or yearly depending on the employees’ position. OSHA found that these types of training can reduce the risk of workplace injury and illness by up to 60%.
    • Know your workplace slip and fall risks and continually assess the area for changes.
    • Make sure you have the right equipment and products for slip and fall prevention. This will vary depending on your job, but common products used for slip and fall prevention within the construction industry includes:
      1. Correct footwear
      2. Handrails on stairs series greater than 3
      3. Caution signs for level changes
      4. Grit tape and grit treads in areas with liquid present or where heavy duty resistance is needed


    Swimming is the fourth most-popular sport in the United States according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Like any activity involving water, slip and fall accidents are bound to happen. In fact, over 39,500 people annually will seek hospital emergency room care for injuries involving below-ground pools and about 10,000 will need treatment for injuries related to above-ground pools according to the United States Consumer Product and Safety Commission. By limiting the dangers and hazards around pool areas, we can significantly work to prevent pool injuries from slips and falls. You can start by reviewing your pool and applying our tips to help prevent accidents from occurring.

    Tips to Prevent Pool Slip and Fall Accidents:

    • Start by checking the deck of the pool because it is the most common place for a slip and fall to occur. Often made of concrete, it can create a slip-n-slide effect if not monitored properly. Put proper safety signs in place and work to keep the pool deck dry. This can be easier said than done during busy times, but by making sure to review your horizontal depth markers on the pool deck it can help. They should be slip-resistant to be in accordance with the 2018 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code. Also, make sure the pool deck is slip-resistant at minimum within 4 feet of the pool according to 2018 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code.
    • Slide platforms and diving boards should have slip-resistant walking equipment. If steps are being used to access either of these, then the steps should be self-draining, with corrosion resistant stairs and ladders and slip-resistant stair treads.
      Steps and ladders should be continually reviewed to make sure they have a slip-proof surface that is working well.
    These are just a few places that commonly see slip and fall accidents. The quality of one’s life can be greatly impacted by taking a spill and falling in just the wrong way. By doing your part to work on fall prevention, it can mean the difference between life and death for yourself or someone else. By using our tips and working to put a program in place to plan to protect patrons and employees, you will be doing your part to prevent falls. A slip and fall safety program doesn’t have to be complex, but can make all the difference.

  5. What is the Running Man Exit Sign and Where is It Used?
    What is the Running Man Exit Sign and Where is It Used?
    We're all aware of the classic American emergency exit sign. The one that has been around since 1911 and spells out the word "EXIT" in bright red lettering. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) went on to create criteria for emergency-exit signage, taking into consideration various contrast levels and evaluating different lettering sizes, eventually publishing the standards adopted by state and local governments across the states. We see these bright signs hovering over doors and corridors within America's buildings, directing us to safety. But what about the rest of the world? Internationally, many countries have adopted some version of the ISO standard, a symbol deemed the "Running Man exit sign". Should your building consider implementing the Running Man exit signs? First, a brief history of exit signs is needed in order to understand how they have evolved and where we are at today. In the United States, it all started in 1911. A huge fire in a downtown Manhattan garment factory killed 146 workers, which sparked NFPA to act on creating a way to get people out of buildings quicker. Thus, the American EXIT sign was born. Early exit signs were made of either metal and lit by a nearby incandescent light bulb or having a white glass cover with "EXIT" written in red, placed directly in front of a single-bulb light fixture. However, in the case of a fire, the power to these lights often failed or were barely visible, rendering them useless for their important job. This evolved to adding red-tinted globes in the emergency exit signs to allow for better visibility. Through the years better emergency EXIT signs have been developed and today we have several options on the market. These include the most popular photoluminescent emergency exit signs and LED emergency exit signs. Jessup Manufacturing's Glo Brite® emergency exit signs are engineered with photoluminescent material which allows them to absorb and store LED, fluorescent, metal halide or mercury vapor light. Photoluminescent exit signs require no electricity and no maintenance.

    But what about the green-lit pictogram Running Man exit sign?

    While the bright red EXIT signs were being implemented all over America, the little green lit Running Man exit sign was being developed by a Japanese pictogram designer named Yukio Oto in the late 1970's. He states that his goal in creating the sign was to communicate to people to "run slowly." The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) was ready to adopt a Soviet Union pictogram, but after hearing about the extensive testing Ota put this sign through, ISO decided to take it into consideration. Ota's sign eventually won out and was adopted for international use in 1985. Ota's design of the Running Man exit sign is argued to have a couple key advantages over the red EXIT signs:
    • It's green. Red is often the international color meaning danger or don't touch. Green, on the other hand, is a color of safety and means go all over the world.
    • It's a pictogram. It's a universal language with no barriers. Visitors speaking any language are able to understand what a person running through a door in a specific direction means.
    Agree or disagree with these statements, they stand at the center of the great emergency exit sign debate that has been brewing for 30+ years now. Throughout the world, exit signs follow ISO standards and use the green pictogram of a figure running and an arrow in the direction of the exit. These signs may also have words in the local language indicating an exit. For these reasons, many countries now use some version of this ISO standard created by Ota.

    Australia Makes the Switch to the Running Man Exit Sign

    After many European countries, Japan, and others moved away from the EXIT sign, Australia decided to follow suite in 2005. The National Construction Code (Building Code of Australia) shifted away from the word ˜EXIT" to the universal pictograph through the introduction of Australian Standard 2293, 'Emergency escape lighting and exit signs for buildings.' This update brought Australia into line with the international standards outlined in ISO3864-1.

    Canada Also Moves to the Running Man Exit Sign

    In 2010, Canada's National Building Code (NBC) made the change to the Running Man exit sign stating that red and white EXIT or UT” signs needed to be replaced by a sign of a white or green man running towards the emergency exit. The change is largely being driven by the country's changing demographics and reflects a desire to help those who don't speak English or French, according to Phil Rizcallah, director of the National Research Council's building regulations group. The Ontario government now requires every new building or major building renovation undertaken since Jan. 1, 2014 to include these new emergency exit signs. By implementing the green Running Man emergency exit sign, they believe it will be easier for those visiting or immigrants of the country to understand where to go in case of an emergency. They also include that the signs may also be photoluminescent, which allows them to give off their light without the need for electricity.

    Benefits of the Running Man Exit Sign

    We briefly mentioned earlier a few potential advantages of the Running Man exit sign. Advocates of the Running Man emergency exit signs debate those and other reasons why they are superior to regular EXIT signs.
    • No matter where it is installed, the Running Man exit sign can be configured to your emergency exit location. The sign can be purchased depicting a Running Man going left (←), right (→) or here (↓). And unlike conventional EXIT signs, the Running Man will never have arrows in two different directions, making it crystal clear on where the quickest path to exit is.
    • Green is a more sensible color then red when it comes to emergency exit signs. The NFPA does acknowledge this point and it is important to note they never mandated the EXIT signs be in red, simply that a contrast exists between the text and the background. Green is thought to mean go and safety, while many state that red indicates stop or harm.
    • It has been argued that the Running Man exit signs are more visible than regular EXIT signs due to the use of imagery and color.

    Should Your Building Use the Running Man Exit Sign?

    While the NFPA has no plans to substitute the classic American emergency EXIT sign anytime soon, you can't deny the Running Man's widespread appeal. Many large municipalities, as well as international companies within the United States, have begun to add the ISO Running Man exit signs to better communicate safe exits for international visitors in their buildings. NFPA states they have considered the change on several occasions and although they don't object to the Running Man emergency exit sign and the green color, they see no reason to make a mandated change. In fact, NFPA even includes Ota's ISO Running Man within the group of auxiliary symbols that their members may use and also allows the use of pictograms in tandem with the "EXIT" text, where local jurisdictions allow. However, NFPA says they have no current plans to eliminate the classic "EXIT" sign, which they state works perfectly fine stateside. Still, you will notice more green lit "EXIT" signs are popping up throughout the United States (although red is still the predominant color of choice). Even more, in 2006 New York City amended its fire code to mandate that high-rises include the ISO Running Man pictogram sign on fire doors on each floor. There is no denying that exit signs play an important role in keeping people across the world safe. Since the Running Man exit sign is not subject to any language barrier, this universal symbol is a smart choice when it comes to optimizing fire safety procedures within a building. As a leader in fire prevention, Jessup Manufacturing is proud to offer a wide range of emergency exit sign options for your facility, including various Running Man exit signs.

Whether it's high-traffic areas, harsh chemical environments, or outdoor applications, Jessup's industrial tapes provide reliable performance and compliance assurance.

Key Floor Marking Tips for Implementing 5S:

Plan Strategically: Before applying floor markings, conduct a thorough assessment of the workspace to identify traffic flow, potential hazards, and workflow patterns. Develop a floor marking plan that aligns with 5S principles and operational requirements.

Utilize Color Coding: Leverage OSHA-approved color codes to distinguish between different types of areas and hazards. For instance, use yellow for caution areas, red for fire equipment, green for safety equipment, and white for production zones.

Ensure Visibility: Choose high-visibility marking tapes that are easily discernible even in low-light conditions. Jessup's industrial tapes offer fluorescent and reflective options to enhance visibility and awareness.

Maintain Consistency: Establish clear standards for the placement, size, and format of floor markings throughout the facility. Consistency fosters familiarity and helps employees adhere to organizational protocols.

Regular Inspection and Maintenance: Implement a routine inspection schedule to check the condition of floor markings and address any signs of wear, fading, or damage promptly. Replace worn-out tapes to uphold visual clarity and safety standards.


Incorporating effective floor marking strategies is integral to the successful implementation of 5S methodology in industrial settings. By prioritizing safety, organization, and compliance, companies can create work environments that promote efficiency, productivity, and employee well-being.

Tape vs. Paint: The Ultimate Guide to Industrial Floor Marking in Warehouses and Manufacturing Facilities by Jessup Manufacturing

In warehouse and manufacturing environments, floor marking is essential for ensuring safety, organization, and efficiency. When it comes to selecting the right method for floor marking, two primary options stand out: tape and paint. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the pros and cons of tape vs. paint for industrial floor marking in warehouses and manufacturing facilities, providing valuable insights to help you make informed decisions for your operation.

Tape for Industrial Floor Marking: Versatility and Ease of Use

Industrial floor marking tape, such as the premium offerings from Jessup Manufacturing, offers unparalleled versatility and ease of use in warehouse and manufacturing settings. Unlike paint, which requires time-consuming application and drying periods, tape can be applied quickly and efficiently, minimizing downtime in your facility. With a wide range of colors, patterns, and specialized tapes available, you can customize your floor markings to suit specific safety and organizational needs.

Advantages of Tape for Industrial Floor Marking:

  • Quick Installation: Tape can be applied rapidly, allowing for immediate use of marked areas in warehouses and manufacturing facilities.
  • No Drying Time: Unlike paint, tape does not require lengthy drying periods, reducing operational disruptions and downtime.
  • Minimal Prep Work: Tape application typically involves minimal surface preparation, saving time and labor costs in warehouse and manufacturing environments.
  • Easy Removal and Replacement: If modifications or updates are required, tape can be easily removed and replaced without extensive effort, ensuring flexibility in warehouse and manufacturing operations.
  • Durability: High-quality industrial tapes from Jessup Manufacturing are designed to withstand harsh warehouse and manufacturing environments, ensuring long-lasting performance and reliability.

Paint for Industrial Floor Marking: Longevity and Customization

While tape offers numerous benefits, industrial floor marking paint remains a popular choice for certain applications in warehouses and manufacturing facilities. Paint provides excellent longevity and durability, making it suitable for high-traffic areas or environments where tape may not adhere effectively. Additionally, paint allows for greater customization, enabling intricate designs, color gradients, and specialized markings to be applied with precision.

Advantages of Paint for Industrial Floor Marking:

  • Longevity: Industrial floor marking paint typically offers superior durability and resistance to wear, ensuring markings remain visible over time in warehouses and manufacturing facilities.
  • Customization: Paint allows for greater flexibility in design and color options, enabling complex markings to be applied with precision to meet the specific needs of warehouse and manufacturing operations.
  • Permanent Markings: Unlike tape, which may require periodic replacement, properly applied paint markings can provide long-term solutions for industrial floor marking needs in warehouses and manufacturing facilities.

Choosing the Right Solution for Your Warehouse or Manufacturing Facility

When deciding between tape and paint for industrial floor marking in warehouses and manufacturing facilities, several factors should be considered:

  • Durability Requirements: Assess the level of wear and tear your floor markings are likely to endure in warehouse and manufacturing environments, and select a solution that offers adequate durability to withstand daily operations.
  • Application Time: Consider the time constraints of your warehouse or manufacturing facility, and choose a marking method that allows for efficient installation without causing significant downtime or disruptions.
  • Customization Needs: Determine whether your floor markings require intricate designs or specialized colors that are best achieved with paint, or if the versatility and ease of use of tape better suit your warehouse or manufacturing operation.
  • Maintenance Considerations: Evaluate the ease of maintenance and potential for future modifications when selecting between tape and paint for industrial floor marking in warehouses and manufacturing facilities.
