Título Study on workers' evacuation in an industrial company
Información bibliográfica Oct. 2010, Vol.48, No.8, p.1050-1053. Illus. 8 ref.
Resumen The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of training on the workers' behaviour, and consequently on their evacuation time, in case of an emergency. Three fire drills were undertaken, during which several parameters were recorded: time taken by the first worker to reach the section meeting point; time taken by the last worker to reach the meeting point; average age of the workers in each section; number of workers in each section; average distance of each section from the corresponding meeting point. Despite the scarcity of data, it was observed during the last fire drill that there was a better attitude towards fire risk and an increased awareness of safety issues. The workers' age as well the number of workers appeared to have no influence on the evacuation time.
