When carrying out your annual inspection and reviewing your safety procedures at work, you may stumble across information surrounding safety chairs and their importance within commercial properties. Unfortunately, many business owners still opt not to have at least one within their property, despite the many benefits they offer. Here at K5, we believe that a safety chair, also known as an evacuation chair, is a must; which is why we’ve compiled this guide on their uses.
The principal use of a safety chair, whether it’s being used within a warehouse, office environment or sports stadium is to safely, efficiently and securely transport those less abled out of the premises in an emergency situation.
Whilst this is the main function of a safety chair, there are various models which offer different benefits, and choosing the best for your needs and requirements will depend solely on the property your business is situated in.
Properties with Various Floors:
In an emergency situation properties with various flights of stairs can prove extremely difficult to vacate. Fortunately, here at K5 we have a range of stairmate safety chairs which can easily tackle stairs, whilst ensuring the occupant of the chair remains safe and comfortable.
Smaller Premises / Offices:
For those who work within a small ground floor property or a single floor office block, the evacuation won’t need to take stairs into consideration. However this doesn’t mean that the evacuation won’t pose an issue for some occupants. Fortunately, we have a range of safety chairs such as the EC1 which will be able to assist.
Here at K5 our team have the skills and experience required to be able to advise you on the various safety chairs available and their uses, so if you want to ensure that you purchase one which is perfect for your property, contact us today on 01234 354 539.
