Evacuation Diagrams and Signs

Does your workplace have compliant Evacuation Diagrams and Signs?

In Queensland the Queensland Fire Regulations 2008 make evacuation diagrams compulsory with the QLD Fire Service having the power to fine any workplace that does not comply with the Regulations.

Haztek can assist with developing your fire evacuation diagrams and signs. Corporate logos, custom colours, framing, photos of wardens, tailored emergency procedures and more can be added to your diagrams so they follow your in-house procedures in the event of an emergency.

Australian Standard 3745-2010: Planning for emergencies in facilities details the design requirements for Evacuation Diagrams and Signs. The key details to confirm are summarised below:
