Evacuation Chairs

Why do I need an Evacuation Chair?

For a multitude of reasons. For example, the Regulatory Reform Order (RRO) 2005 highlights the responsibility of evacuation lies with the occupants of the building to be able to evacuate safely. If you have anybody on your premises with mobility impairment or have made your property accessible to those with mobility impairment, you are required to review evacuating those people safely in the event of an emergency.

It is a legal requirement for a business and its building to provide adequate evacuation procedures for both mobility impaired and abled bodied occupants/staff/visitors in an emergency.

What is an evacuation chair?

An evacuation chair helps support the safe evacuation of an individual to a point of ultimate safety. At its core an evacuation chair should help negotiate stairs in an emergency evacuation. It should require minimal personnel to operate. Our Safety Chairs are easy to use and require minimum effort.

Is it difficult to use?

Not with the right training. It is vital to have competent people capable of using an evacuation chair. Having an evacuation chair is not a tick box exercise, it can prove an essential part of any evacuation plan that needs to negotiate stairs on route to a point of ultimate safety. Depending on the number of people who require training, you may want to consider a train the trainer course so you can certify others.

Where should it be located?

An evacuation chair should be located in a pace of relative safety such as a fire protected stair well. This enables you to deploy an evacuation chair safely and enable safe transfer of the person to the evacuation chair. Space is always a premium so you should not prevent safe evacuation by blocking stair wells or causing a fire door to remain open.

What chair is right for my situation?

Identify your evacuation routes in the first instance. Do the routes have any particular features that may limit your ability evacuate using a chair in a timely manner. If you know anybody at your location that will definitely require assistance in the event of an evacuation you will need to formulate a PEEP (Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan).  This will help to ensure your plan is both robust and effective whilst taking into consideration the individual and the building surrounding you. Site assessments and demonstrations are a simple way of understanding the feasibility of the equipment you are looking to potentially use.
