General safety

As you gain access to different spaces within M2 and Zetta, you should ensure you are familiar with each room, especially:

  • Exits and emergency exit paths
  • Locations of:
    • Assembly points
    • First aid kits
    • Fire extinguisher 
    • Nearest fire alarm pull
    • Nearest AED

Evacuation procedure

In the event of an evacuation, stay calm, make your workplace safe (de-energize equipment), take your personal belongings (coat, keys, ID) if easily available, and leave immediately. Close all doors along your exit route and proceed to the appropriate assembly point.
