WATTLE GLEN PRIMARY SCHOOL EVACUATION DIAGRAMS
AUST – Evacuation Planner provided the Principal of Melbourne School Wattle Glen Primary with evacuation diagrams for all school buildings under AS 3745-2010 ‘Planning for emergencies in facilities’. The school had undergone a recent renovation and new building was also erected so the evacuation diagrams did not comply with the provisions of AS 3745-2010. AS 3745 now requires the Emergency Planning Committee to nominate a validation date for the evacuation diagrams (that is, the date upon which the evacuation diagrams must be re-assessed against potential changes that have occurred to the building or AS 3745-2010). Building owners and tenants should realise that any building works (even minor works) occurring in the building under a building approval that affects the information contained on the evacuation diagram or emergency procedures, requires the evacuation diagram to be amended and re-issued expeditiously.
The school’s evacuation diagrams must be displayed in a prominent position near each exit of the premises.
