The emergency exit route is clearly labelled (the green running man). In the event of an emergency evacuation the lifts must not be operated.
If, in the event of an emergency evacuation, you are unable to safely evacuate the building using the stairs, safe refuge points are located in every stair well on each upper floor. Refuge points are sign posted. When at the refuge point you must use the telephone or intercom provided, which contact Security directly. Inform Security of your location and that you require assistance. Security will communicate information to you in relation to what is happening and reassure you. You should remain in the refuge area until advised otherwise or someone comes to your assistance. Refuge points are located as such to provide a safe area for at least 30 minutes in the event of a real fire.
Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the exits and exit routes. There are building floor plans on the right hand side of the John Percival Building page.
If you think you might require assistance in the event of an emergency evacuation, you must arrange a Personalised Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) as soon as possible. Students must contact their School Disability Contact to arrange a PEEP. Staff will need to contact their School / Division Disability Contact or their manager to arrange a PEEP. Please remember that it is your responsibility to inform the relevant person that you require a PEEP to be set up.
