Evacuation Diagrams are mandatory in all facilities across Australia. They are site specific and assist all people within a building to exit safely. ACTWELL diagrams are developed and installed in order to exceed compliance requirements with Australian Standard 3745-2010 Planning for Emergencies in a Facility. Our staff can install the diagrams for you and supply a range of mounting options including snap lock frames, stylish acrylic options, or even have them printed directly onto brushed aluminium.
ACTWELL's state of the art software allows us to capture all data for relevant fire and safety installations, including exit signage, extinguishers, hose reels, fire blankets and more during our site inspection. We then work behind the scenes to create your seamless, spatially accurate floorplans and evacuation diagrams.
Our diagrams can be easily edited, and reproduced at the push of a button, so there are no costly redrafting fees once the diagrams are past their compliance date.
The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 directs that Evacuation Diagrams must be placed in every workplace, regardless of size. Diagrams must be displayed at specific heights in locations where occupants and visitors are able to view them, such as hallways, common areas and close to exits. They must show the layout of the premises, the location of safety equipment and the evacuation route. New buildings, or previously un-diagrammed buildings will require new diagrams to be produced by our diagram technicians. This process includes a site audit to assess the site in order to produce accurate, high quality and compliant diagrams. If no major changes or demolitions occur, diagrams remain compliant for a period of 5 years.
Buildings with existing diagrams require compliance updates ensure that all diagrams within a premises meet the Australian Standards. These updates are required every 5 years or when building structure, building egress or first-attack firefighting equipment changes. The compliance date is recorded on each evacuation diagram.
