Available As:

Our ‘Train the Operator’ course is ideal if you have a large number or a high turnover of staff and wish to be able to train your staff in-house on the safe and correct use of evacuation equipment.

 Our ‘Evacuation Pad / Slide – Train the Operator’ course is a comprehensive training course and trains participants on how to correctly use an evacuation pad/slide (simple, effective methods of evacuation commonly used in the NHS for ease, effectiveness and compliance). 

Evacuation pads are designed to slide easily over virtually all internal floors and are robust enough to move over the external ground to a safe distance. The construction of the pads/slides are designed to allow for vertical evacuation both up and down stairs when lifts cannot be safely used or accessed. 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 use evacuation equipment in the event of an emergency, allowing your business to comply with its legal duty under The Fire Safety Order (2005).
