Why train on an evacuation chair?
Evacuation Chair Training: If you have any type of evacuation equipment, it’s imperative that those responsible to use it whilst under the added pressure of an emergency situation, know exactly what to do.
Human nature can make a person panic during an emergency, such as a building fire. Knowing precisely what to do will keep someone focused on the task at hand.
To be straight to the point
There’s not really any use in owning these specialist tools if you do not have any staff who know how to use them. You might be covered legally, but you certainly won’t be covered morally if someone is left inside a burning building purely because of a lack of training.
Professional, fully-certified, evacuation chair training really is a godsend.
Who would need an evacuation chair?
Anyone who is unable to evacuate a building under their own steam, due to a disability, will be reliant on the help of others. Making sure you have staff on duty, who have been professionally trained to use specialist evacuation equipment, may save the lives of anyone who suffers from mobility impairment.
If a person is unable to exit a building by themselves, it may not be immediately obvious. Not all disabilities are visible. Mental health conditions may render a person incapable of using stairs just as much as a more apparently visible condition.
What courses do we run?
Evacuation Chair Training London is able to provide a range of training options across the capital. These include Basic Operator courses as well as Key Trainer courses (also known as Train the Trainer).
Being a qualified key trainer enables you to further train your own staff in-house and is a fantastic option for companies with large amounts of staff, shift workers, or a high staff turnover.
Furthermore, we can construct a bespoke course tailored exactly to your organization’s requirements and for the exact brand of equipment, you may already have installed.
Which equipment do we train on?
Whether you have tracked evacuation chairs, patient-transport chairs (ambulance chairs), powered stairclimbers for wheelchairs, or rescue mattresses: our team can train you exactly how to use them.
With many years of experience, in both manufacturing evacuation chairs and training people how to use them, we feel our staff provide an invaluable service.
We have, therefore, gained a high reputation for the quality of our training, and have become one of London’s premier evacuation chair training course providers.
When are we available?
Operating in all areas inside the M25 we provide a professional, cost-effective service to our clients. We also understand that working life in the capital is not 9 to 5, so we are available to our clients at a time that suits them best, including early morning, late at night, or weekends if required.
Where do we carry out Evacuation Chair Training?
The evacuation chair training will take place at your location on-site, this ensures that your staff understands the best use within their building. All successful candidates will receive a certificate and those who have completed the Key Trainers course will also get a comprehensive trainer’s pack.
Which UK laws apply to Evacuation Chairs?
The UK has legislation in place which may apply to your business. The following government documents explain the laws in detail. In essence, they are designed to avoid any disabled person being discriminated against. This includes the provision of a safe escape in emergency situations.
