There is a common misunderstanding that it is the responsibility of the emergency services to ensure everyone evacuates from a building safely, it is not!

Did you know there is a legal requirement in this country, the United Kingdom, for employers of care establishments and service providers to ensure the safe evacuation of mobility impaired persons in the event of an emergency.  

The products in this section enabling safe evacuation will ensure you maintain compliance with statutory obligations for your residents and staff.

In addition to the supply of evacuation equipment, we can deliver training on the equipment, as under HSE Regulation PUWER 98, organisations must have their evacuation equipment serviced annually and their teams must have refresher training.

See http://www.hse.gov.uk/work-equipment-machinery/puwer.htm

We currently charge standard operator training out at £450 + vat for the first 6 delegates and £150 for every additional 6 on the same day.

The question that you might be asking is, do I need this equipment? If a building has a lift then you are inviting guests in to all areas of the premises meaning you have to provide a means of escape from, which includes guests with limited mobility.

The following document is the government legislation: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/422202/9446_Means_of_Escape_v2_.pdf
