Evacuation Chair Training - West Midlands

Are you equipped to evacuate your site in an emergency?

Emergency evacuations can be very chaotic, presenting a serious threat to the safety of people. Whatever the situation, an Evacuation Chair will provide safe and easy transportation for the less mobile. It is the best choice you can make for evacuating people who aren't able to exit by themselves.

Your legal requirements

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, requires that all people using the building be provided with adequate means of escape in case of fire. This includes a suitable escape plan for mobility impaired persons. (Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan) 

Anyone permitted into a building must be safely evacuated in the event of an emergency without the dependence of the emergency services. There is a legal requirement for employers and service providers to ensure the safe evacuation of mobility impaired persons and Disability Discrimination legislation places stringent demands on every organisation to meet its Duty of Care.

It is essential that when an Evac Chair is purchased a suitable training system is also implemented. For complete safety we advise two people are present at all times to assist and open doors on the exit routes.

Our training course

Our course is designed to train key members of staff who have been given responsibility by their employer to assist in the evacuation of the mobility impaired within their premises.

  • Train your staff on how to use an Evacuation Chair safely in an emergency in line with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
