DON’T JUST THINK FIRE ‐ THINK ALSO ABOUT ACCESS, EGRESS AND LIFT BREAKDOWN


If you choose in isolation you could be selecting equipment that isn’t suitable for all of the above and fire is probably the least likely to happen. You will then be buying additional equipment to cover Access, Egress and Lift Breakdowns. So choose wisely to cover more of the above.


There are various ways to get in and out of buildings – steps, ramps or lifts but what happens if a wheelchair user attends and you don’t have a ramp or lift or can’t alter as a listed building?


Our range includes models for straight, spiral and flared stairs that go up and down stairs so all options are covered. The models are portable so can be moved as required.


We have options that allow wheelchair users to remain in the chairs or for people to transfer, if it is the most suitable option. Do ask the person concerned as they know what is best for them!


A basic evacuation chair may not be the most suitable option for people in wheelchairs as they should remain in their chairs. Basic chairs go down and shouldn’t be carried up with people in them. Why would you expect people to move people in equipment that requires their physical strength to control the chair? You need to think about the safety of the person operating the evacuation chair as well as the needs of the occupant.


THINK MANUAL HANDLING


AND RISK ASSESMENTS Often emergency signage is high, so not always seen as people look at eye level and as we know smoke rises.


We now offer the Evacuation App that pictorially shows the evacuation route and will direct people to their appropriate escape route.


Recently at a conference at a well‐known hotel not one of the many disabled people were asked to complete a PEEPS. This is a big issue as it is people’s safety that is being ignored. People complete their PEEPS on the phone so information is always there. The business just needs to upload their escape routes. If an emergency the phones goes and you follow the route.
