What is an Evacuation Plan?
An evacuation plan has been established to ensure that in an emergency, as many people as possible leave the building as safely as possible.
In addition, an evacuation plan is a means to see what is expected of the emergency response team members in the event of, for example, a fire, bomb threat, evacuation or power failure.
An evacuation plan plays a major role in the preparation for any calamities and is therefore important in a real evacuation.
Evacuation plans are mandatory for larger buildings and high-risk buildings, in which many people reside.
They are based on the requirements of the user permit or arise from the Working Conditions legislation.
