About the Course
This half-day evacuation chair training course teaches your colleagues how to swiftly use an evacuation chair whilst keeping the operator and evacuee as safe as possible.

During a serious incident such as a fire, every second counts. Any unnecessary extra time spent trying to figure out the correct procedure for the evacuation chair increases the risk of injuries or worse

Theoretical learning and a practical session will teach learners how to quickly open the chair, adjust it, secure the evacuee inside and then transport them to safety. Manual handling will also be taught to ensure that the chair operator uses the correct lifting techniques to minimise the risk of injuring themselves whilst operating the chair.
