Exit sign placement, consultation versus design professional
New FI here, go easy on me as I'm trying to learn and do things correctly.
I performed an inspection of a large 100k+ M Occupancy this week. Among many other problems, I noticed that exit signs were not visible from most of the occupancy. Exit signs were only placed above the doors themselves, there is no other indicator in any aisles of which direction of travel should be taken to the nearest exit.
I believe I should note it as a violation and refer the property owner to contact a design professional to assist them in proper placement of the exit signage.
However, does anyone else think it should be up to me to tell them where to place the signage? Yes, ultimately the FI has the final say if something is acceptable or not, I understand.
I don't believe it's our responsibility to design it for them, just approve it, mostly for liability sake.
Thanks in advance!
