As part of the Disability Discrimination Act, it’s a legal requirement for schools to make the proper arrangements to ensure those who suffer from a physical or mental disability receive a fair education and that they are safe within the premises. Within the classroom setting, this can be easily achieved with work being planned to suit certain needs and extra help being given. In an emergency situation however, without the proper equipment, such as evacuations chairs , the safety of the pupils can be hampered.
To ensure that your school provides a safe environment within all aspects it’s highly recommended that specialist evacuation equipment is installed and provided. Fortunately, here at K5 we supply a range of evacuation chairs from a number of the leading suppliers to help with this.
As we’re not limited to just selling one manufacturers products, we promise that we’ll be able to provide you with an evacuation chair that will suit the needs of your school perfectly.
Our stock involves specially adapted chairs including those with sides, which are suitable for the quick and safe evacuation for people of all sizes and any requirements.
We believe that it’s important that those who will be entrusted to use the evacuation chairs in an emergency should be properly trained on not only how to use the product, but also the responsibility that comes with it.
For this reason, here at K5 we provide a hands-on training course which highlights the correct manner in which to use an evac chair, to make sure that it’s used safely and efficiently.
Along with providing hands on training, which gives everyone involved the chance to understand what it is like to be evacuated via a chair and to use the chair; here at K5 we also offer a cascade training course, which offers the opportunity for those that have been trained to turn to trainers and educate others within their school/business to use evacuation chairs safely.
