EVACUATION DIAGRAMS PROCEDURE
We offer a flexible approach for your site and workplace.
An evacuation planner can visit your site and prepare sketches and mark up the fire equipment on the plan, along with assembly areas and evacuation routes.
Alternatively we can build the diagrams from your sketches or marked up plans.
STEP ONE: ASSESSING YOUR SITE
Evacuation Planner can conduct a site visit to audit your location if you are located in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Cairns or within 4 hours from these main cities.
If you have an existing plan of your building, email it to us for a free quote.
If you do not have an existing plan of the building, we can prepare this with a site visit or shoot us a sketch.
Our online service toolkit enables customers to conduct an in-house audit & plan for Evacuation Planner to produce compliant evacuation diagrams which is a great option for remote locations and is available upon request.
Once we locate where the diagrams should be hung, we will prepare a draft of the evacuation diagrams for your review.
PDF's and hard copies if ordered will be shipped to your premises or you can hire us to install them.

Fire Emergency procedure manual as per Australian standard
Chemical Management for schools is an overwhelming task for a staff member to undertake. Thankfully, we can assist with your schools’ chemical management, in one or all four of these categories to ensure that your school is compliant:
Chemical Management can be broken down into 4 steps.
CHEMICAL STOCKTAKE – A Stocktake of all chemicals on site is completed.
CHEMICAL SAFETY DATA SHEETS/CHEMICAL MANIFEST & HAZARDOUS REGISTER– A safety data sheet is obtained for each item listed on your stocktake. Using the information from the Safety Data Sheet, all columns in the Chemical Manifest are able to be completed. Hazardous chemicals are also added to the Hazardous Chemical Register.
CHEMICAL RISK ASSESSMENTS– For all chemicals that identify as hazardous, a risk assessment is completed.
SAFETY DATA SHEET FOLDERS – A Safety Data Sheet folder is provided for each block and cleaners storage room (as required.) This contains all chemicals listed on the Chemical Manifest for that block as well as any necessary risk assessments for hazardous chemicals.
