Assisted Evacuation Training
About this Course
All employers must have a suitable and sufficient strategy for the safe evacuation of all staff, clients and visitors to their premises including those who may require assistance.
The purpose of this practical workshop style session is to review, discuss and practice different requirements for managing evacuation strategies for persons who require assistance, and different equipment that can be used including:
- Vision Impairment
- Hearing Impairment
- Cognitive Issues
- Mobility Impairment
- Age, Pregnancy Issues
- Fire evacuation incidents and drills
Who is this for?
During an incident or following an injury, it is anticipated that most people, including those with restricted mobility, will be able to exit ground floor areas by means of existing accessible entrances and exits. Where this is not the case, or where excessive travel is required at ground level to reach a usable exit employers will need to examine the feasibility of providing additional means of exit.
All staff should complete this short course in order to provide assistance.
On completion, all Learners completing the training will receive a course certificate.
£550 + VAT for up to 10 persons.
Additional Learners £55 + VAT.
Maximum attendance 12 per training session.
We can run 1 to 4 sessions in a single day.
*We will ask you to confirm the type of chair being used at your location prior to the start of the course so that we can ensure your staff are trained appropriate to the equipment you will be using in an incident.
**The term Evac Chair is not used during this course as this is a brand/manufacturer name.
What our customers say?
"We’ve just finished a week of Mental Health training with BV Associates Ltd who trained 80 of our staff over 4 sessions. They never fail to deliver exceptional training regardless of the subject. I will admit I was nervous putting myself on the course with 79 of my own staff but BVA gave me an overview when we booked the training and sent their trainer to explain what the course involved (at no extra cost I should add).
Feedback from those who attended and on returning to work states that they felt that there was an immediate culture change. My managers reported that they felt armed with the information to, above anything else, listen - they understand that we are merely supporting and signposting - not asking them to be qualified counsellors.
We had jumped on board after speaking to other companies who had spearheaded the qualification who can all show a demonstrable increase in productivity, a happier workforce and a desire to want to go to work (even the management team!). We look forward to our own results as we continue to grow as a business, together.
Sceptical at first, I now realise it’s not soft skills - it is merely putting the needs of your most important asset first whilst understanding that everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses working towards the same collective outcome."
"2 courses completed with BV Associates, very professional company that delivers a great standard of training. I have had the joy of Nik Taylor as an instructor on both courses and his training style and delivery of the subject matter is second to non. Thank you all at BV Associates for everything you have done to help me gain these qualifications and I am happy to recommend you to anyone."
