evacuation chairs

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that your emergency plan should be appropriate to your premises, and arrangements should be in place for the safe evacuation of people identified as being especially at risk, such as "those with disabilities, children and lone workers".

 

As most people are aware, lifts or other aids reliant on electricity should not normally be used in case of fire, which poses a problem if people with mobility impairment such as wheelchair users, bed bound residents and people with walking aids need to be evacuated from a building quickly. This must be taken into account when preparing your emergency plan, which must include provision for the evacuation of disabled persons from any part of your building to a place of ultimate safety. "The plan should not rely on fire and rescue service involvement for it to be effective".

 

In other words, you must be able to fully evacuate your premises regardless of anyone's disability. To achieve this you may need an evacuation aid such as an evacuation chair similar to the ones below. Unfortunately this type of equipment tends to be expensive, not only to purchase in the first instance, but on an ongoing basis in relation to maintenance and staff training. Furthermore, some types of evacuation chair are difficult and complicated to use, especially the ones that incorporate kickstands. The Exit Master Versa and Versa Elite below are relatively simple to operate but training is essential if staff are to successfully use them without frightening the occupant to death. Confidence is essential and as well as initial training regular practice is necessary.

 

We can usually provide on-site training.

 

We also have an alternative to evacuation chairs that is cheaper, easy to use, requires little training but is still very effective, please ring for advice on 01282 691616 or 0845 644 6515.
