Evacuation Diagrams / Signs

Are your diagrams compliant?

The team at Torkit Business Solutions will work closely with you to design and develop a compliant evacuation diagram / sign for your business.  We will assess the most effective locations for your diagram placement and each will be orientated accordingly (with regard to the direction of the way out and its location to the ‘You are here’ point). 

The Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 objective is:

  • to ensure that persons can evacuate buildings safely and quickly if a fire or hazardous materials emergency happens
  • to ensure prescribed fire safety installations for buildings are maintained

As per Part 4 Evacuation Planning, Instruction and Practice – section 18, the following fire safety reference points must be shown on an evacuation plan:

  • the place that corresponds to the place in the building where the diagram is displayed – “you are here”
  • the route to the nearest exit and each exit of the building
  • intercommunication devices (if any) and manually operated fire alarms (if any)
  • firefighting equipment
  • designated assembly areas and the route from the exit to the assemble area
