For those that don't speak it, though, that can cause confusion.
Or even amusement: many Americans seem to be amused by the "WAY OUT" signs on the London Underground.
While some of those signs are still in use today, emergency exits are more commonly indicated by a simple picture: that of a man leaving through a door.
There are many variations on the running man in Europe and often within the same building, but the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) mandates that all its member countries use the same signage.
Ota submitted 58 versions of his design to the Japanese fire safety commission.
It's for this reason that airports and other gathering places for international travelers have been adopting this form of signage since the 1960s.
A pictogram should be immediately understandable by anyone who might need to use it.
Meanwhile, the running man can be found in our emergency lighting section, where we stock lighted signage, exit boxes and emergency bulkheads for indoor and outdoor applications.
