I get a pretty clear picture of why OSHA, if not the fire marshall, would
require an emergency egress route to be sized to make it possible for
everyone in the room to get out without climbing over furniture or each

But what about widening the office doorway to 60"? No? Hmm. But anyway,
there is still a fair case for doing what can readily be done, to make the
office a safer place during a general emergency. To this end, office mates
could stage OSHA drills, and practice to train themselves to stay calm and
cooperative in getting out together.

All standard disclaimers etc.
