This standard applies to employers, entrepreneurs or owner/operators who are responsible for pro-tecting the lives and health of employees and also other individuals, e.g. visitors, participants, cus-tomers, and contractors. It is to be applied to all operational situations, in other words, not only to normal operation but also to special events, such as open day, general meetings, extensive maintenance work on the premises, as well as events of all kinds. The standard makes statements as to how this evacuation can be organized and implemented as self-rescue and describes the interfaces for rescu-ing other people, in particular individuals with disabilities. It provides the individual responsible for evacua-tion with an aid for preparing and carrying out the evacuation by means of problem-solving methods not restricted to a particular industry as well as by describing means (constructional and technical) and methods (organisational and individual-related).
