Having an evacuation chair is crucial in an emergency situation, ensuring everyone has a safe and quick means of escape, should an evacuation take place.
Why is having an evacuation chair important?
Inclusivity and Accessibility: There are currently more than 4.8m individuals with a disability in employment in workplaces, and this figure is rising. For those that face access barriers, being able to safely evacuate in an emergency is vital and evacuation chairs are indispensable for providing a means of escape for individuals with disabilities or limited mobility. They ensure that everyone, regardless of their physical capabilities, can evacuate your building safely in emergencies.
Compliance with Regulations: To comply with current regulations the presence of evacuation chairs in buildings with two storeys or more is vital, not only to avoid legal issues but to demonstrate your commitment to safety. A failure to evacuate any employees, where the employer is found to have caused a person’s death “either by act or omission”, could potentially result in a charge of Corporate Manslaughter (England, Wales, Northern Ireland) or Corporate Homicide (Scotland).
The Evac+Chair product range has been designed to provide swift evacuation in the event of a fire or other emergencies where time is of the essence. The Evac+Chair evacuation chair is designed for swift and efficient ascending or descending evacuations, ensuring a speedy exit, and reducing the risk of injury or panic.
Evacuation Chairs to suit any building or personnel requirement
Our Evac+Chairs are versatile and can be used in various scenarios beyond fires, including power outages, medical emergencies, or natural disasters. Having evacuation chairs readily available means you are prepared for a range of unforeseen circumstances.
Knowing that you have evacuation chairs in place provides peace of mind. It instils confidence that, in the event of an emergency, a reliable means of escape is readily available.
