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.
