Evacuation Chair Operator Training

Course Introduction

This is a ½ day course which we can run at your premises. The evacuation chair operator training covers the safe deployment and handling of an evacuation chair. Importantly, we also look at safe transfer of passengers into evacuation chairs which is a topic many courses choose to ignore. A practical approach is taken to ensure that plenty of hands-on practice – all under expert supervision.

Update: we can potentially adapt this course to maintain distancing with the use of a human sized, weighted manikin to allow realistic practical exercises

Key benefits of this course:

  • Will equip your people with the competency to safely use evacuation chairs
  • Practical and interactive to maximise the effectiveness of the training session
  • Delivered by a highly experienced instructor
  • We can conduct the training on a wide range of chairs

  • Ability to understand how to safely use evacuation chairs

It should be noted that chair operators must have good mobility and at least average upper body strength
