Alpha-Tech Fire are proud to be working with Globex Europe Limited supplying the GLOBEX Evacuation Chair, a cost effective method of ensuring the safe evacuation of non-ambulant persons from the upper or lower levels of buildings throughout Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset in the event of an emergency or when lifts can not be used due to maintenance.
Safe simple evacuation
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 !
It is a legal requirement for employers and service providers to ensure the safe evacuation of mobility impaired persons in the event of an emergency.
Do you think you are compliant ?
FACTS: (in many countries)
Today's law stipulates that it is no longer the duty of the Fire Service to make sure the workplace is safe. The duty now lies with ‘the responsible person’
The responsibility is clearly with the building management or service providers to ensure there are suitable procedures in place to evacuate everyone including disabled people without relying on the fire service.
