WHAT IS EMERGENCY EVACUATION

FLOOR PLANNING?

Emergency Evacuation Floor Planning involves creating detailed and accurate floor plans that outline the fastest and safest routes for evacuation in the event of an emergency. These plans include the locations of exits, assembly points, firefighting equipment, and other critical safety information. The objective is to provide clear and easily understandable guidance to occupants, facilitating an efficient and orderly evacuation.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EMERGENCY EVACUATION FLOOR PLANS?

The implementation of Emergency Evacuation Floor Plans offers several key benefits:

  • Enhanced Safety: Ensures all occupants can quickly identify their nearest exits and safety equipment, significantly reducing evacuation times and potential injuries during an emergency.
  • Compliance with Regulations: Meets the South African National Standards (SANS 23601) and legal requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, avoiding potential fines and legal issues.
  • Increased Preparedness: Prepares occupants for emergency situations with clear, visual instructions, contributing to a calmer and more organised evacuation process.
  • Risk Mitigation: Identifies potential hazards and obstacles that could impede an evacuation, allowing for preemptive measures to enhance safety.
  • Peace of Mind: Provides reassurance to all building occupants and stakeholders that safety is a top priority.

STEPS TO GETTING EMERGENCY EVACUATION FLOOR PLANS APPROVED

  • Plan Development: Utilise the information gathered during the assessment to create detailed evacuation floor plans following SANS 23601 guidelines and legal requirements.
