I am being told I need to place evacuation maps throughout my facility. What regulation says this. I am under the impression it only needs to be near an exit.
May be a local requirement.
What kind of facility?? business occupancy??
As always, I tell people to nicely ask for the code section or a copy of it for your files. So you can review it and see if it is being applied correctly.
If it cannot be produced, it does not exist, so it cannot be enforced.
B Occupancy. Suites within a building, where they open into an exit hallway. Basically a doctor’s office. They want me to put them in the suites.

I guess I should have asked who "they " is fire dept? health? state?
You are more than likely under the Calif. Fire Code, and appears under that code, a plan is not needed till the occupant load hits over 500.
If it is some other agency, ask for the requirement in writing, so you can see how it reads.
I know many insurance companies require this, our FD has an evacuation map from all offices, bedrooms, training room, etc. all as required by our insurance carrier.
I found out it was a director that is asking for this. I think she misinterpreted the requirements. My last place asked for them to be in the hotel like rooms we had for our Wellness Program. I’ll just have to submit. Overkill is better than ignoring it.
