Warning Systems that Comply with OSHA and NFPA 72

In an emergency, such as a toxic spill or natural threat, a combination of audio, visual, and other alerting mechanisms are needed to guarantee communication in a high-noise environment. ATI’s powerful, reliable, and flexible Safety Alert Systems have been deployed by numerous industrial facilities to provide essential alert/warning capabilities for emergency preparedness and planning.


  • Employee alerts and notifications
  • Toxic spills or gas releases
  • Facility fires
  • Terrorist attacks
  • Natural disasters such as floods, tornados or earthquakes
  • Any other plant-wide emergency


  • OSHA Regulations: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets standards for workplace safety.
  • NFPA 72: The National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code provides guidelines for the design, installation, testing, and maintenance of emergency communication systems, including mass notification systems.
  • Risk Management Programs (RMPs) under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Air Act (CAA), Section 112(r): These are essential for facilities that handle and store hazardous substances. The RMP rule aims to prevent accidental releases of hazardous chemicals and to minimize the impacts of such releases on employees, the public, and the environment.
  • U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC): The NRC has specific requirements for emergency response planning and preparedness to ensure public safety in the event of a nuclear or radiological emergency.
  • The Chemical Manufacturer’s Association Community Awareness and Emergency Response (CAER) Program is an important reference for chemical manufacturers and industrial facilities that handle hazardous materials.
