We can provide a detailed evacuation diagram for all businesses in accordance with the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3745:2010 which explains in detail why an evacuation diagram must be displayed.
According to the Work Health and Safety Act, a PCBU or Person(s) Conducting Business or Undertaking are required to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of staff and visitors at each workplace. Having at least one Evacuation Diagram placed in a prominent location forms part of meeting that obligation.
An Evacuation Diagram is a pictorial representation of the safe egress routes, fire and safety equipment within a facility. The purpose of an Evacuation Diagram is to help ensure the safest escape of a person from a facility via the shortest emergency routes in cases of fire or emergency.
Evacuation Diagrams can be A4 or A3, we prefer A3 as they present additional useful information to a user and are clearer to read, in cases of emergency. all Evacuation Diagrams should be designed according to the elements and relevant clauses in Australian Standard AS 3745: 2010 – Planning for emergencies in facilities.
AS3745 prescribes that each Evacuation Diagram be reviewed on changes to floorplan and updated every 3-5 years as best practice. At SafePower Safety Systems our technicians are able to assess the requirements for the building that your business is in and then advise you as to what evacuation diagram you will need and the location.
