Exits and Egress

Exits and egress paths must be kept clear from obstructions and usable at all times. This includes keeping furniture, lab equipment, carts, boxes, and trash away from exit doors and out of the egress paths. Keeping fire and smoke separation doors closed prevents egress corridors and stairwells from being filled with smoke during a fire situation.
