The 2010 Equality Act states that staff or visitors with limited mobility must have an equal chance of safe escape in an emergency situation. Evacuation chairs are one such method of escape. Based in Birmingham, West Midlands, our company provides evac chair training to ensure that these life-saving apparatuses are used competently and effectively in the event of an evacuation.
From first aid to fire safety, it is essential to keep up-to-date with current or newly introduced legislation and requirements. Those who are in need of evacuation via an evac chair, either through disability or impairment, must be able to do so in a safe manner
This training course is aimed at employees throughout the workplace who could assist in helping to evacuate those who require the use of an evacuation chair. The course provides an insight into those with mobility impairment and describes how best to safely transport them in emergency situations..
This is a practical course. The hands-on experience we offer help to ensure the safe usage of the evacuation chair in real-life situations.
