Emergency Evacuation

The emergency exit routes are clearly labelled (the green running man). Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the exits and exit routes.


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 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.


In an emergency evacuation the lifts must not be used.  For anyone unable to safely evacuate using the stairs, there are safe refuge points located in every stair well on each upper floor.  Refuge points are sign posted.  When at the refuge point, you must use the phones, which go directly to Security when picked up.  You must 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 must remain in the refuge area until advised otherwise or someone comes to your assistance.  Refuge points are located such as to provide a safe area for at least 30 minutes in the event of a real fire.
