Why Train Staff To Use Accessibility Equipment?

Posted on Posted in Aspire GB News

Taking measures to ensure your business premises are accessible for all is vital if you want your organisation to be an inclusive institution with equal rights for employees, visitors and customers. However, having the right equipment such as ramps, stairclimbers, wheelchair lifts and evacuation chairs is no good if your team isn’t trained to use them correctly.

There are three key reasons not to overlook training:

 

1) Safety

Training ensures staff members can use accessibility equipment in a safe manner. The correct procedures safeguard those using the equipment, those assisting and other team members in the vicinity.

 

2) Dignity

If incorrectly assisted, those using access equipment can feel uncomfortable. Good training equips assistants with the knowledge and skills to aid team mates without compromising their dignify or comfort.

 

3) Efficiency

Using access equipment efficiently is useful to maintain the smooth running of your premises day-to-day. What’s more, in the event of an emergency, efficiency is crucial. Training programs teach staff how to use equipment in a competent manner and gives¬†them the confidence to do so under pressure.
