Our pursuit of exploring the scope of the term ‘means of escape’ underpins all that we do. With your help, we are constantly building on the definitions found in the Approved Document B (1985) which states that the term means moving, “…from the building to a place of safety outside the building” whilst at risk, and the Regulatory Reform Order (2005) which describes ensuring that, “…routes to emergency exits from premises and the exits themselves are kept clear at all times” as the meaning.

Our content proves time and time again that #lifesafety ultimately depends on the ‘means of escape’, despite: communication, prevention, confinement, suppression, and contingency planning before and during an emergency. Do you have quality safety signs that can guide you towards the means of escape, even after loss of power? Once you get there, has the means of escape been maintained to ensure that it is obstruction free? What part does lack of public training, knowledge and confidence have on loss of life?

Our ultimate mission is to work with our community to flesh out issues and come up with solutions together to keep the worlds’ building, vessel and aircraft occupants with an accessible ‘means of escape’.
