New Course Added to the Evacusafe Portfolio of eLearning Courses
Article date: 09/04/2015
Evacusafe, the first evacuation equipment manufacturer to introduce the option of online training to its customers and the first to have both its online and onsite training courses externally approved by the IIRSM and RoSPA, today announced the introduction of a brand new Transit Chair eLearning course.
Transit chairs are similar to those used by Paramedics and can be used to carry persons up or down stairs making them an ideal solution for organisations requiring evacuation from a basement up to a ground level exit.
This new course offers customers a cost-effective option having purchased a chair and wishing to provide training to those required to use the equipment. It demonstrates the correct techniques for lifting and carrying a person safely as well as covering topics such as current UK legislation and some of the issues affecting a person with restricted mobility. A certificate is issued on successful course completion which can be printed or saved locally.
David Della-Savina, Sales & Marketing Manager of Evacusafe said “We understand that sometimes training can be cost prohibitive when compared to the price of the equipment. That’s why we have introduced this new online course for Transit Chair customers who realise the importance of having staff trained correctly in its use to minimise the risk of injury during an emergency evacuation.”
The course has been designed primarily for straight run staircases with or without landings. For customers with spiral stairs or tight, awkward angles, onsite training is a better option as it allows the operators to practice and build confidence in using their own equipment on their particular stairs.
