Evacuation Chair for Corporate Events
Article date: 05/10/2015
With the Rugby World Cup in mid flow, now seems like the perfect time to let you know about evacuation chair hire from Evacusafe for corporate events across the UK. As you may or may not already know, a number of Evacusafe’s evacuation chairs are currently in place at Twickenham having been selected by Facilities Management Company, Detail Limited, for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. In a nutshell, the purpose of a tracked evacuation chair is to assist any person who suffers from limited mobility, who needs to be transported across a venue, including travelling up and down stairs. The chairs particularly come into play during an emergency evacuation.
Anyone responsible for facilities management should already be aware of the importance of safety, as well as their duty of care and legal obligations, when it comes to providing an equal chance of a safe escape for anyone whose mobility is impaired or restricted. With so many events using temporary buildings you should also be aware that the same legislation applies; Fire Safety Order & Equality Act 2010 (Disability).
Evacusafe has a portfolio to be proud of with some highly esteemed clients and events to boot. The Company has provided evacuation equipment to many sports events over the years, including the 2012 Olympics, the Ryder Cup, PGA Tour events, this year’s European Wheelchair Basketball Championships, the 2015 Rugby World Cup and the TUC Congress Centre to name but a few.
