Evacuation diagrams for all workplace or activity centres are compulsory under Australian Standard AS 3745-2010 in Perth, Western Australia and all other states and territories of Australia.
As with any standard, these evacuation plans can be confusing and take up your valuable time to implement.
This is where CMG Fire and Safety Services can bring their expertise in emergency evacuation planning to help your organisation achieve legal compliance and relieve your emergency evacuation planning burden.
It is essential for any organisation, business, or facility to comply with Australian Standard AS 3745-2010: Planning for Emergencies in Facilities. As part of this important standard, updating and replacing evacuation diagrams every five years is recommended. Any changes made to the building’s layout or design or to the Fire Safety and Emergency Management Plan must also be reflected in updated diagrams.
For organisations, this means that:
According to Australian Standards AS 3745-2010, evacuation diagrams are required to include specific information. However, there are both mandatory and optional elements. At a minimum, evacuation diagrams should include the following:
A pictorial representation of the floor or area.
The title ‘Evacuation Diagram’.
The designated exits to the building should be marked in green.
Any fire equipment installed in the building.
The ‘YOU ARE HERE’.
The date of validity.
The location of assembly areas.
A legend should be provided to explain any evacuation diagram symbols.

Evacuation diagrams are crucial for fire safety and are mandated by Australian Standards AS 3745-2010 for buildings or facilities. These diagrams indicate the safest exit routes and assembly points for building occupants during emergencies. Additionally, they highlight the location of fire equipment, which can be useful if you are in a safe position to extinguish a fire.
Many people believe that an evacuation diagram must be placed next to every door that serves as an ‘exit’. However, this is not accurate. The Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) determines the locations for the diagrams, which should be installed in appropriate locations where occupants and visitors are able to view the diagram.
When it comes to installing evacuation diagrams, determining their correct orientation can be a challenge. We suggest standing in front of the diagram and finding the “you are here” symbol. Check that the diagram matches your actual location. For instance, if the diagram indicates the kitchen is to your right, and a door is to your left in the “you are here” symbol, and that is what you see when you look around.
