FireDirect product - Evacuation Diagrams

Suitable for small, medium and large sized buildings.

Do you have evacuation diagrams located at strategic points in your building? These are an essential part of your evacuation procedure and are required by Work Health and Safety legislation. We can design your emergency evacuation diagrams using our special software.

Firstly we require existing blueprint or building plans so that we can generally match your emergency diagrams to them.

We then visit your workplace and draw up a draft map from your building plans outlining egress pathways, exit door locations, location of fire equipment and assembly areas. We then send you a copy of the draft plans based on your building blueprint for your approval (Remember that our aim to keep these evacuation diagrams simple).

Finally we prepare laminated wall diagrams (framed) for each specific location in your building.

* We will frame and fit the diagrams to building walls so they are more aesthetically appealing and also they have a better idea of what type of frame and colour they want. Price is subject to size and height.

Site Safety Diagrams

Site Safety Diagrams and direction signage diagrams are commonly used in large scale public spaces to locate various tenancies, occupancies, facilities and departments. Locality guides in shopping centres, hospitals, institutions, government services and large complex buildings are examples of public spaces utlising way signage diagrams to inform their occupants of location as well as traffic flow and accessibility.

These signs are most effective at a large scale with a clear and concise visualisation of the entire premises;

Personal Evacuation Plans

The development of emergency response procedures for inclusion in an emergency plan is not complete unless consideration is given to the occupants and visitors of a facility who may require assistance or are likely to experience difficulty in responding to an emergency and therefore require their own personal emergency evacuation plan.

AS 3745 - 2010 Planning for emergencies in facilities identifies potential occupants and visitors who may require a personal emergency evacuation plan, as being those:

  • accompanied by an assistant;
  • having a guide or companion animal;
  • using alternative forms of information and communication;
  • having an ambulatory disability;
  • using a wheeled mobility appliance;
  • who are easily fatigued;
  • who easily experience acute anxiety in an emergency;
  • who easily experience extreme confusion in an emergency.

AS 3745 also recommends that a list of the names of those occupants with a disability requiring a personal emergency evacuation plan be held at the location from where the chief warden operates in an emergency. Furthermore, suitable emergency and evacuation strategies in the emergency plan should be discussed with those occupants for which a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) has been developed.

Emergency Plans

In accordance with AS 3745, an emergency plan is required to document the emergency arrangements for a facility and detail preparedness, prevention and response activities. AS 3745 includes emergency roles, responsibilities, strategies, systems and arrangements.

A facility's emergency planning committee in association with the facility owners, managers, occupiers and employers are responsible for deciding which types of emergencies require specific emergency response procedures to be included in theemergency plan under AS 3745.

Those required to participate in the implementation and maintenance of theemergency plan are nominated as the facility's emergency planning committee, emergency control organisation, management and nominated staff under AS 3745.

Emergency Plan provides an emergency plan service that complies with the requirements of AS 3745 and other standards such as AS 4083 - 2010 Planning for emergencies - Health care facilities, and where required, local legislation by:

  • Listening and liaising with key stakeholders
  • Familiarising itself with a facility, its people and its processes
  • Offering practical and cost effective emergency management solutions

Emergency Plan will ensure the emergency plan is 'facility specific' as required by AS 3745 in considering:

  • The size, complexity and features of the facility
  • Security systems and arrangements
  • The number and type of occupants and visitors
  • The hours of occupancy
