Evacuation Chair Training

Implementing an evacuation chair (or ‘evac chair’) is becoming an increasingly wide-spread method by which business can ensure the highest levels of safety in their establishments. An evacuation chair means that all patrons and staff can be moved to a place of safety in an emergency whatever their mobility levels.

If your business has an evacuation chair, adequate training is vital to ensure that your staff can use this piece of equipment safely, appropriately, and confidently.

Our evacuation chair course is designed to ensure that candidates know what is expected of them and how to practically use the chair in a real-life situation.

We ask that you send your evacuation chair’s make and model to our office seven working days before the course start date. That way we can ensure that we are delivering training relevant to the operation of your evacuation chair.
