Our ‘Train the Operator’ course is ideal if you have a smaller number of staff in a building requiring training and need them to be able to safely and correctly use evacuation equipment. 

Our ‘Evacuation Chair – Train the Operator’ Course is a comprehensive training course that trains participants on the theory of the specific make and model of your equipment and how to correctly use an evacuation chair in emergency scenarios.

Evacuation chairs are vehicles used to transport any person who is unable to move under their own power from upper floors in an emergency situation, such as when lifts are either not working or they are unsafe to use. They can also be used to transport incapacitated/injured people in large buildings along ground floors to a place of safety. 

On successful completion of the course, delegates will be able to safely and confidently operate evacuation equipment in an emergency situation. This course is a legal requirement for your business and helps you comply with your legal duty under The Fire Safety Order (2005).
