Service providers have a duty of care to provide safe evacuation procedures for customers or service users who need assistance to safely evacuate a building in the event of an emergency. In the case of hospitals and care homes, large numbers of patients may require assistance. Have the right equipment and procedures in place is essential.

 

Your Legal Obligation:

“Where an employer or a service provider does not make provision for the safe evacuation of disabled people from its premises, this may be viewed as discrimination. It may also constitute a failure to comply with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.”Fire safety risk assessment- Supplementary guide: Means of Escape for Disabled People.

It’s important to ensure the safety and well-being of both the service user and those assisting in the evacuation. To assist in the procedure, there are a variety of products available that are specifically designed to make the process as easy as possible.
