Evacuation Diagrams completed within 2 weeks

We liaise with you to develop and produce a compliant Evacuation Diagram for your facility (or Diagrams for larger facilities) that clearly shows all workers and occupants the routes for evacuation in an emergency, the locations of exits, assembly areas and emergency equipment, and where the viewer is located within that facility.

We assess how many diagrams are required for your facility, as well as the most effective locations to install the diagrams so that everyone on your team is as familiar as possible with the information on the diagrams.

  • Prepare people prior to an emergency by providing a pictorial representation of the facility and its emergency information
  • Guide people to safety in an emergency
  • Identify location of emergency equipment (alarms, fire extinguishers, fire hose reels, first aid points, warden phones, hydrants, etc…)
  • Identify location of emergency and fire exits
  • Identify location of assembly areas, holding and communication points
  • Identify communication and emergency contact information
  • Identify emergency procedures
  • Provide an orientation of where you are

The purpose of an Evacuation Diagram is to:

  • Prepare people prior to an emergency by providing a pictorial representation of the facility and its emergency information
  • Guide people to safety in an emergency
  • Identify the location of emergency equipment (alarms, fire extinguishers, fire hose reels, first aid points, warden phones, hydrants, etc.)
  • Identify the location of emergency and fire exits
  • Identify the location of assembly areas, holding and communication points
  • Identify communication and emergency contact information
  • Identify emergency procedures
  • Provide orientation of where you are in relation to the diagram (and therefore, the emergency equipement, exits, etc.)

Our 10 Step Process

The 10 step process will be completed in approximately 14 days for average-sized facilities, however Workplace Emergency Management will assess the job and provide an estimated time of completion. The entire process is completed by the same Workplace Emergency Management consultant, so you’ll be working with someone who really gets to know your facility and its needs.

Workplace Emergency Management will quote a complete package and clearly identify all services – there will be no hidden extras.

Your consultant will contact you for any plans and information you have of the facility. The consultant will perform searches to establish orientation, hazards, distances, other structures, emergency likelihood and neighbours. The consultant will also consult with the Emergency Planning Committee, research required emergency information for the evacuation diagrams and prepare a checklist/ questions for the onsite visit.

Your consultant will arrange a suitable time to visit your facility and complete the following tasks:

  • Design floor or area template/templates
  • Locate, inspect and document onsite emergency equipment
  • Inspect onsite assembly area
  • Inspect means of egress and exits
  • Inspect placement of Evacuation Diagrams
  • Basic compliance and life safety assessment
  • Consult with Emergency Planning Committee

Your consultant will develop emergency evacuation diagram/diagrams template and pass through internal checking process.

First draft will be sent to customer for approval and if any changes are required will be made and sent back to customer. We only move from this step once the customer is happy with the diagram(s).

Your consultant will develop emergency evacuation diagrams that are orientated, identify “you are here” and pass through internal checking process.

Completed draft evacuation diagrams will be sent to customer for approval and if any changes are required will be made and sent back to customer for final approval. We only move from this step once the customer is happy with the diagram(s).

Evacuation Diagrams will be printed after a final review from the consultant.

Evacuation diagrams will be delivered to the facility, either by post or by the consultant.

Evacuation Diagrams are ready for installation.

Workplace Emergency Management stores a copy of the Evacuation Diagram in case it is required for future use (eg, reprint or changes to the facility, etc.).

It is a requirement under Australian Standard 3745-2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities, that Evacuation Diagrams are reviewed every five years. Workplace Emergency Management will contact you and inform you when that time is reached, so you do not have to keep track. In most cases diagrams will only require slight modifications and a reprint; your consultant will assess if more in depth modifications are required and advise you of what will happen next.

The development of Evacuation Diagrams is always in accordance with Australian Standard 3745-2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities.
