Evacuation chair training

Evacuation chair training is vital in preparing for an emergency

The Fire & Rescue Service is not responsible for evacuating people from a building, so it is up to your fellow colleagues to ensure the safe evacuation of the property. Therefore staff members need to be trained to use evacuation chairs properly, and to be completely confident they can assist a vulnerable individual in the event of an emergency evacuation.

Escape Mobility’s evacuation chair training is site-specific, so staff are trained to use evac chairs in their own building. We are proud to be able to communicate with all our our Clients that we are the only supplier of this type of training that includes people handling techniques. So the training really does help you to evacuate people safely if you need to .We create real scenario's with real people!

Prior to evacuation chair training, we will conduct a building assessment and its usage, while identifying any issues that may affect the evacuation process.

More evacuation chair training information

The evacuation mattress and evacuation chair training and certification applies to different types of evacuation chairs and mattresses, and the training can also be applied when using evacuation chairs and mattresses from other manufacturers.

*In order to renew your certificate, we recommend a refresher training session, so that you can keep up-to-date with any changes in training and techniques when using the evacuation equipment. It should also be noted that it is a legal requirement to complete a fire drill once a year. As such, it is ideal to undergo refresher evacuation equipment training to ensure ongoing competency with evacuation measures and familiarity with using evacuation equipment.

Additional to training, it is highly recommended to ensure that your evacuation equipment is in full working order, and as such, Escape Mobility offers our evacuation product servicing - where our team can manage the servicing and maintenance of your evacuation chairs and evacuation mattresses.
