Emergency evacuation diagrams play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of employees and visitors in the event of an emergency situation. These diagrams serve as a visual guide, enabling individuals to quickly identify the most efficient and safest routes to exit the premises. In a high-stress scenario, such as a fire or other emergencies, having clear and accessible evacuation diagrams can make all the difference in preventing injury or loss of life.
Moreover, businesses in Australia are required by occupational health and safety legislation to have evacuation diagrams strategically placed within their buildings. Non-compliance with these requirements can lead to legal consequences and potential damage to your company's reputation. Investing in professional emergency evacuation diagram services not only helps you meet your legal obligations, but also demonstrates a commitment to prioritizing the safety and well-being of your staff and visitors.
According to Australian Standards AS 3745-2010, evacuation diagrams are required to include specific information. However, there are both mandatory and optional elements. At a minimum, evacuation diagrams should include the following:
- A pictorial representation of the floor or area.
- The title ‘Evacuation Diagram’.
- The designated exits to the building should be marked in green.
- Any fire equipment installed in the building.
- The ‘YOU ARE HERE’.
- Designated exits.
- The date of validity.
- The location of assembly areas.
- Fire hydrants.
- A legend should be provided to explain any evacuation diagram symbols.
Our design process for creating effective evacuation diagrams begins with obtaining the existing blueprint or building plans for your facility. This allows us to tailor the evacuation diagrams to accurately represent your building's layout and specific features. Accuracy is crucial in ensuring the efficacy of these diagrams during an emergency.
Once we have the necessary building plans, our team visits your workplace to gather additional information, such as egress pathways, exit door locations, the position of fire equipment, and designated assembly areas. This on-site assessment allows us to create a comprehensive and detailed draft of the evacuation diagram, factoring in real-world elements that may not be apparent from the original blueprints alone. We then use our specialized software to create clear and easy-to-understand final diagrams that meet Australian legislative requirements and can be strategically placed throughout your building for maximum visibility and accessibility.
