The Purpose of an Evacuation Diagram

Evacuation diagrams, or evac plans, are one of the most common wall-features you will find in any workplace in Sydney. Often situated next to doorways and in thoroughfares, evacuation diagrams have a reputation of becoming part of the furniture; but they’re so much more than that!

Every workplace evacuation diagram is an informative tool, designed to educate staff on the layout of their facility and act as a continuous reminder of a workplace’s emergency information.

Many people are of the belief that an evacuation diagram is most frequently utilised in an emergency situation. While evac plans certainly are used to aid staff in locating emergency exits, equipment and of course, guide people to safety, their primary function is to aid in planning and preparing for an emergency before it arises, ensuring staff are dynamic in their handling of an emergency situation.

How we can help your Workplace

The Workplace Emergency Management team have more than 15 years’ experience in planning, designing and implementing evacuation diagrams in Sydney and regional New South Wales.

Our consultant will liaise with you to strategically develop and roll out your workplace’s evac diagram/s across your facility, regardless of the size of the organisation.

Each diagram will clearly display evacuation routes, the location of emergency equipment and emergency exits as well as where the staff member or visitor is located within the facility at the time that they’re viewing the diagram.

Additionally, the Workplace Emergency Management team will undertake a site visit to your premises (in the Sydney area) to identify exactly how many evacuation diagrams are required for compliance and safety purposes.

They will also pinpoint where each plan should be placed throughout the organisation to ensure optimum viewership across your staff pool.

From concept through to implementation and compliance, Workplace Emergency Management will take care of the entire process, so that you don’t have to.

Our process has been broken down into 10 simple steps and can be completed in 14 days, depending on the size of your organisation.
