Legislation Requirements

Under current legislation it is the responsibility of the employer and other building operators to provide an adequate means of escape for all occupants of the premises. The Evac+Chair 500 is the ideal solution for the evacuation of people with mobility difficulties who may not be able to use stairs. Current legislation includes:

  • Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 - Means of escape
  • Building Regulations Parts B and M - Building use and access
  • BS5588-8:1999 - Providing disabled people with measures to be assisted in an emergency
  • Equality Act 2009 - Ensuring that disabled people are not at a disadvantage compared to those that are not disabled
  • DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) - Providing adequate access and facilities for any disabled person who may enter a building

Evac+Chairs are Class I Medical Devices with their installation and use regulated under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER). Employers, self-employed people, and those employed to supervise or manage equipment are responsible for ensuring that a reasonable amount of staff are adequately trained to use Evac+Chairs safely, that the chairs are annually serviced by a qualified engineer, and that they are regularly inspected by a competent worker.

FAQs (1)
Q. Is there a minimum age or weight for the Evac+Chairs?
A.

No, the Evac+Chairs are suitable for children (not babies or small toddlers that can be carried) as they come with patient restraints to keep the user secure in the chair while in motion, especially, when descending stairs. It is a recommendation from the manufacturer that when you purchase an Evac+Chair for a specific child user that adding a comfy Seat (ECCHAIRSEA) would be beneficial as the hammock style seat can be quite uncomfortable for younger users.
