3.3.35 Point of Safety. A point of safety is one of the following:
(1) an enclosed fire exit that leads to a public way or safe location outside the station, trainway, or vehicle;

(2) an at grade point beyond the vehicle, enclosing station, or trainway;
(3) any other approved location.

Dot point (1) and (2) is clear, for dot point (3) Is there a clear definition for the "Point of Safety"? 

I guess it should be similar to the refuge area, which is fire separated, sprinklered or smoke extraction, and with a means of communication. Is my understanding correct?
