Evacuation Diagrams

Evacuation Diagrams

 

All evacuation signs and diagrams produced by Emergency Compliance Services comply with relevant State Legislation, Australian Standards and WHS requirements. We work to Australian Standard 3745-2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities, to ensure your company site not only meets your State or Territory requirements but exceeds them.

 

Australian Standard 3745 -2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities and the Work Health and Safety Legislaton 2011 requires the PCBU, the person responsible for a facility and tenants, to ensure a safe work environment by distributing sufficient emergency and evacuation information to occupants explaining the actions to be taken in the event of an emergency. Such information is expected to be provided in various forms including the display of Evacuation Diagrams that comprise a pictorial representation of a floor or area and other relevant emergency and evacuation information.

 

The Evacuation Diagrams are orientated to the building position in accordance with the 'you are here' point marked on the diagram. These diagrams are to be displayed in locations where occupants and visitors are able to view them.

 

The Evacuation Diagrams include:

  • Designated exits

  • The location of communication equipment including Warden Intercommunication Points (WIPs), Manual Call Points (MCP's), Emergency Call Points (ECP's) and main panels/controls for occupant warning equipment

  • The location of fire fighting equipment including extinguishers, blankets, hose reels and hydrants

  • Fire Indicator Panel (FIP), if provided

  • Assembly area location(s)

 

The development of these diagrams may lead to less confusion, direct and appropriate response, less potential for physical and emotional impacts on people involved in emergency and reduced direct impacts on the business.

 

Detailed and effective emergency evacuation diagrams should be included as part of any organisations safety considerations, safety management systems and emergency management.

 

Note: Emergency Compliance Services can produce your diagrams with or without an existing floor plan. All diagrams developed also require a site visit for a mark up by one of our trainers.
