Frequently Asked Questions

An evacuation chair is a specially designed device that assists in the safe and efficient evacuation of individuals with mobility limitations during emergencies. It is equipped with features such as handles, straps, and wheels to facilitate the transportation of individuals down staircases or across uneven surfaces.

While there is no specific legal requirement in the UK that mandates the use of evacuation chairs in all premises, there are regulations in place to ensure the safe evacuation of individuals, including those with mobility impairments. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 emphasizes the responsibility of employers and building owners to have appropriate evacuation plans in place, considering the needs of all individuals. Depending on the specific circumstances and risk assessments, having evacuation chairs as part of the evacuation strategy may be advisable or necessary.

Evacuation chairs are primarily designed for descending stairs during emergency evacuations. They are engineered with features to provide stability and control while moving individuals downwards. Using an evacuation chair to go upstairs is not recommended as it may compromise safety and put both the user and the operator at risk. For evacuations involving upper floors, it is recommended to have alternative evacuation procedures or devices in place, such as evacuation lifts or appropriate refuge areas, depending on the building's design and evacuation plan. It is crucial to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment and consult with evacuation experts to determine the most suitable strategies for evacuating individuals in your specific building or premises.
