The Egress Group EgressAbility™ logo is based on universal design principles. The design shows a group of people, of varying abilities, ages and sizes moving through an exit way at differing speeds.
The group includes people of larger and short stature, a person using a wheelchair, a person with an assistance dog and a pregnant lady.
The first two images are part of the Accessible Exit Sign Project, which is an international campaign promoting the need for an accessible means of egress in all buildings. The concept has been developed by Lee Wilson from Egress Group Pty Ltd. This image is referred to as the Accessible Means of Egress Icon
