Evacuation Plans & Procedures

The Fire and Rescue Service Act 1990 and the Workplace Health and Safety Act 1995 place legal and mandatory responsibilities for the owner/occupier of all licensed buildings to have formalised and relevant emergency procedures and site diagrams.

 

Evacuation diagrams in addition to the required written emergency evacuation plans are varied due to the diverse classes of buildings and classifications issued under the Building ACT and Building Code of Australia guidelines.  This diversity requires a range of tailored emergency procedures to be formulated to ensure individual business legal obligations are met.

Written Fire and Evacuation Plans

Written Fire and Evacuation Plans are now considered an encompassing document that must be kept by all buildings and contain specific information relating to the type of building and its primary purpose use. Some of the information required in a written emergency plan, but are not limited to:

  • Alerting and communicating with persons in the building
  • Alerting MFB including manually operated alarms
  • Method of operation of fire fighting equipment.
  • Evacuation of special needs persons both staff and the public (including those affected by liquor and Informing the Evacuation Co-ordinator of the number of persons evacuated)
  • Evacuation instructions for evacuating the building in accordance with the evacuation procedures
  • Training plan for staff and any other required occupants.

Any alternative solution used in the building that includes a fire safety management procedure as a condition of occupation of the building. E.g. a restriction on the number and distribution of a building’s occupants. The plan must reflect this condition in the procedures.

 

All written emergency Plans must be formally reviewed at intervals of not more than 1 year. This review must be kept in written form and be able to be produced on demand by a government authority inspector.
