To become certified in Evacuation Chair training, get in touch today, and gain the knowledge and skill set on how to swiftly use an evacuation chair whilst keeping the operator and evacuee as safe as possible.

What is evacuation chair training?

Evacuation chair training teaches your staff how to confidently use an evacuation chair and how to safely evacuate people with mobility impairments in an emergency.

You may think using an evac chair is quite simple but to use it correctly, it requires technique, which requires full training. If it isn’t used correctly, it can cause injury to both the operator and the evacuee. The responsible persons to use an evacuation chair must be confident to use the device when needed.

Enquire today by sending us a message here or giving us a call and enrol your staff on our emergency Evacuation Chair training.

How frequently do you need to take evacuation chair training? There is no legal rule for evacuation chair training frequency, but it is recommended to be completed yearly to ensure your staff are up-to-date on new evacuation chair legislation and techniques on how to operate the chair safely.
Can anyone use an evacuation chair? Yes, anyone can use an evacuation chair, as long as they have received the correct, professional training. Using the evac chair incorrectly could cause injury to both the person using the chair (evacuee) and the person using the evacuation chair (the operator).
Is evac chair training mandatory?

Evac chair training isn’t mandatory/a legal requirement (yet) but as a business, ensuring safe evacuations from your premises is a legal requirement under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

So, if you do choose to have evacuation chairs, then you must ensure you provide adequate training to any employee who would be the responsible person for using an evacu chair in an emergency.
