There are a wide range of premises that fall under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. If you are a business or a workplace, this is relevant to you. Under the order, it is essential that an escape route is available at all times for all people, including those who are disabled, pregnant or injured. An evacuation chair is a key solution to this problem. However, there are times when a chair may not be appropriate; a person may need to be immobilised in the event of an injury, for example. This is where evac stretchers are suitable.
Under the order, evac stretchers (or any evacuation equipment) should not be used without the operator being appropriately trained. If an injury has occurred, it is dangerous for an untrained operator to use the evac stretcher for it could lead to further or more severe injuries. Training can be provided for the use of evacuation stretchers.
Evac stretchers are suitable for a range of different uses. From evacuating people in an emergency to being used to transport them from one location to another, the diverse use of an evac stretcher makes it an ideal piece of equipment. There is a range of evac stretchers available, from those used by the professionals such as ambulance crews to those more suited for sport injury evacuations.
