What is an Evacuation Diagram?

 

Evacuation diagram’s are one of the most important pieces of information for your building. Its purpose is to provide occupants with information on how to evacuate your building should an emergency situation happen.

 

Why Should a Business Have an Evacuation Diagram?

 

Evacuation Diagrams are mandatory for all Australian Workplaces and multiple residency buildings. Our professional design team is a leading service provider of emergency evacuation diagrams for all applications.

 

What Should be Included in an Evacuation Diagram?

 

Evacuation Diagram’s will consist of a pictorial representation of the floor or area of a building and other relevant emergency response information.. They are intended to provide emergency and evacuation information for occupants and visitors and contain information such as:

 

  • Exit lights and exit routes
  • Assembly points/areas
  • Emergency information
  • Portable and fixed firefighting equipment
  • Manual call points (MCP)/communication equipment.
  • Fire control rooms
  • Emergency procedures
  • The date the diagram was created and when it is valid until.
  • The site name and full address.

 

Where Should Evacuation Diagrams be Displayed?

Key requirements for displaying evacuation diagrams:

 

  • Location – where occupants and visitors are able to view them.
  • Position – diagram should be positioned at a height not less than 1200mm and not more than 1600mm above the ground.
  • Orientation – each should have the correct orientation with regard to the direction of egress (exit route) and its location to the ‘YOU ARE HERE’ point.

Where an assembly area map is included, it should have the same orientation as the rest of the diagram.
