Specifically, a means of egress is broken into three parts: the path of travel to an exit, the exit itself, and the exit discharge the path to a safe area outside. The code also address the number of exits required for a structure based on its intended occupancy use and the number of people who could be in the place at one time as well as their relative locations. It also deals with special needs, such as hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons where evacuating people may have special requirements. In some instances, requirements are made based on possible hazards such as in industries where flammable or toxic chemicals will be in use.
