WAC 296-800-31065

Maintain exit routes during construction and repair.

You must:
• Have enough exit routes that comply with these rules before letting your employees occupy a workplace under new construction.
• Make sure that employees do not occupy an existing workplace unless:
– All exits and existing fire protection are maintained; or
– Alternate fire protection is provided that ensures an equivalent level of safety.
• Make sure that flammable or explosive materials used during construction or repair do not expose employees to additional hazards or prevent emergency escape.
