Fire Escape Plans

If you are an employer, owner, or occupier of premises that aren’t a ‘single private dwelling’ (a private home), it’s your responsibility to keep people safe if there is a fire.

WHAT IS A FIRE ESCAPE PLAN?

An Escape Plan is a plan displayed for the occupants of a facility with the elements for escape shown, and which shows the information required for the evacuation, rescue, or first intervention.

Each escape plans produced by QDOS adhere to the latest Britsh Standard; Fire Safety symbols used are in accordance with ISO 7010 and all colours in accordance with BS ISO 23601:2020.

        FAQS

        Fire Escape Plans

        WHERE SHOULD I LOCATE THE FIRE ESCAPE PLAN?

        Escape plans should be located at strategic points around the building, such as main entry/exit points on each level, adjacent lifts and stairs, at points where occupants can learn the evacuation route and procedure (such as staff rooms or training rooms), or in every room (such as hotel rooms).

        DO FIRE ESCAPE PLANS NEED TO BE PHOTOLUMINESCENT?

        All escape plans do not need to be photoluminescent. However, if the premises has a phosphorescent way guidance system, the escape plans may use phosphorescent material, which shall be no less than classification C, according to ISO 17398.

        Photoluminescent escape plans from QDOS are printed by HILUX which exceed the classification C, according to ISO 17398.
