Basically, Emergency Evacuation Diagrams are finding maps used to direct any person in a building or area away from danger to a safe place. These plans must be designed in accordance with strict guidelines and regulations set-down within the AS3745:2010 and they must include a number of minimum elements such as fire extinguishers, fire hydrants and other important information.
It is crucial that the orientation, position and location of emergency evacuation diagram maps are compliant with the standard as well as the materials and installation of each sign so as not to compromise safety; for example, simply drilling a hole into a fire door to install an evacuation sign can dramatically reduce its performance capability. Altering a fire door may render the door non-compliant and the door will need to be repaired or more likely replaced. Safety Graphics provides professional, fully compliant and well-designed evacuation diagram plans for display in common areas of buildings and sites.
The following shall be included in each emergency evacuation diagram map as a minimum but there are others items that can be included in certain situations:
Evacuation Plans are mandatory for all Australian Workplaces and multiple residency buildings. The Work Health and Safety legislation requires a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) to provide evacuation procedures for workers and occupants of a facility. Safety Graphics specialise in providing fully compliant diagrams to all types of workplaces, strata and facilities throughout Australia. The Australian Standard for Planning for emergencies in facilities – AS 3745-2010 was developed in 2010 with the objective to “enhance the safety of people in facilities, by providing a framework for emergency planning”. Standards are regularly amended to include more guidance for best practice. Should you require any assistance or further guidance regarding these changes, please do not hesitate to contact us.
