What is an Evacuation Chair?

An evacuation chair is designed to help people with mobility impairments safely go up or down stairs when other routes are unavailable. Mobility impairments can include physical disabilities, asthma, pregnancy, or heart conditions.

These chairs are commonly found in places like offices, retail stores, schools, and care homes. They are compact, foldable, lightweight, and easy to maneuver. Our range includes both premium chairs with armrests and padding and cost-effective portable options.

Are Businesses Required to Have Evacuation Chairs?

While business owners have a general duty of care and must implement health and safety measures for their employees, there are no specific laws mandating evacuation chairs on site. However, the Regulatory Reform Order (2005) states that organisations must consider individuals who may be at particular risk, such as those with physical disabilities. Therefore, providing evacuation chairs is advisable when there is no safe and quick evacuation route for those who might need them.

How Do I Use an Evacuation Chair?

When you install an evacuation chair, designate staff members to operate them. While operation methods vary by chair, it's essential that these staff members know how to use them safely and efficiently.

The product manual will provide detailed instructions. Many companies also offer evacuation chair training, which is recommended. Designated operators should practice using the chair at least four times a year.

Some chairs are installed in positions where users can lower themselves onto the seat, though assistance might be needed. Once seated, users should be securely strapped in, and the chair can then be used to safely transport them to their destination.
