Fire Evacuation Plans

A Fire Evacuation Plan is a written document which includes the action to be taken by all staff in the event of fire and the arrangements for calling the fire brigade.

As a commercial or industrial business, it is a legal requirement to have an Fire Evacuation Plan visible to all your employees, visitors and staff.

 

Today’s legislation stipulates that it is no longer the duty of the Fire Service to make sure the workplace is safe. The duty now lies solely with the ‘responsible person’.

 

For small premises this could take the form of a simple fire action sign posted in positions where everyone can read it and become familiar with its contents.

 

For a larger building, or a premises with higher risks you will need more detailed emergency evacuation plan which takes into account the findings of your fire risk assessment.

 

Fire safety and evacuation plans

 

Your plan must show how you have:

 

  • A clear passageway to all escape routes
  • Adequate alarm systems in place
  • Clearly marked escape routes that are as short and direct as possible
  • Enough exits and routes for all people to escape
  • Emergency doors that open easily
  • Emergency lighting where needed
  • Training for all employees to know and use the escape routes
  • A safe meeting point for staff

 

Fire Evacuation Procedure Poster

 

As each building is different there is no ‘one-size fits all’ evacuation procedure template. Your fire evacuation plan should indicate the location of all fire exits, escape routes and assembly points as well as instruct on fire safety procedures.

 

If you would like a Fire Evacuation Poster created bespoke to your business, our team of fire safety experts will be able to take measurements and create an accurate evacuation poster.
