It’s crucial that all evacuation gear is checked regularly for defects to guarantee it’s in optimum working condition. In an ideal world, this should be done at least once every year. In fact, it’s a legal obligation for all businesses to do so under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations act (PUWER) which states that businesses have a duty to preserve any equipment that is used by its workers within the office. However, some businesses do not have the time or resources to carry out this vital role. Once it has been bought, stowed away, or fastened securely to the wall, the only time it may come to mind again would be in a real emergency situation, which, fortunately, does not happen regularly. For the remainder of the time, it’s in danger of becoming part of the corridor furniture and left. Other motives to use the Evac Chairs and other equipment could include if a mobility-impaired person cannot make it to the lower levels of a building due to a power outage or equipment failure.
If you’re a business owner you’re lawfully in charge of ensuring that your emergency evacuation gear is in good working order.
