Muster Station and Embarkation Station Signs

The objective of the escape route signing system is to ensure that a sign or a series of signs is provided and placed so that a person is directed along the escape route from any space within a ship or a marine installation towards towards an assembly station or embarkation station. The signage system should be designed based on the means of escape plan, assembly station plan, and lifesaving plan. It should provide simple information that will make it easy to identify the means of escape provisions, allow people to escape with minimum assistance and avoid possible points of confusion.


On passenger vessels, if the assembly stations and the embarkation stations are not at the same place then the evacuation route between the assembly station and the embarkation station should be marked with the respective survival craft sign and directional arrow.
