Field trials of directional safety signs systems carried out by the University of Greenwich, found 60% of people don’t notice emergency exit signs during an emergency evacuation like a fire alarm.
The knock on effect for the hotel industry is queues by the stairs and busy, chaotic corridors during a fire alarm and the result is often bad reviews and guests feeling so unsafe they vow not to return.
The University trials, which included the use of Evaclite dynamic directional safety signs, found people had a 200% improvement in signage detection with the dynamic signs.
In the trial, participants were asked to go down a corridor with standard passive emergency signs. The majority of people said they didn’t notice the signs, and even if they did, they didn’t follow the way the sign recommended.
The key to the trial was the time it took to make a decision on which direction to go. The seconds saved could be crucial.
A new eBook, released by Evaclite: ‘Dynamic Emergency Exit Signage: Why The Time is Now For The Hotel Sector’ discusses how hotel managers could deal with some of the problems slow evacuation times create and present some very practical guest solutions.
Successful modern hotel businesses put the guest experience at the forefront of everything they do. Hotels do a lot of good work hiring and training great people, providing state of the art facilities, making rooms clean and comfortable and serving quality food. Visible, helpful safety is also being added to the list of traits of a successful hotel.
