ARE YOU PREPARED FOR AN EMERGENCY?
There is a common misunderstanding that it is the responsibility of the emergency services to ensure that everyone evacuates a building safely. It is not.
There is a legal requirement for employers, service providers and building owners to ensure the safe evacuation of mobility impaired persons in the event of an emergency.
GLOBEX Evacuation Products are the only evacuation products approved by London Fire Brigade Enterprises (LFBE). LFBE is the trading arm of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA). The LFEPA operate the London Fire Brigade who have 150 years of experience in the fire and rescue sector. They aim to be the provider of choice for clients who require a world-class solution to fire, resilience and community safety-related applications, through consultancy, training or direct service delivery.
EVACUATION CHAIRS AND EVACUATION CHAIR TRAINING
WHY DO I NEED A GLOBEX EVACUATION CHAIR?
Increased awareness of legislation has led to the use of a range of evacuation equipment, including evacuation chairs. GLOBEX Evacuation Chairs offer a cost-effective, safe and simple solution that ensures the safe evacuation of those that are mobility impaired. Our entire range of chairs can also be used as transfer/ambulance chairs and greatly assist with compliance.
TRAINING AND MAINTENANCE
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) apply to those who own, operate or have control over work equipment. Equipment must be suitable for its intended use, safe for use, and properly maintained. In addition to this, PUWER demands that those who are operating the equipment have received enough information, instruction and training. This responsibility extends to businesses and organisations whose employees use work equipment, whether owned by them or not. We offer a number of services in the form of certificated evacuation chair training, trainer training and annual maintenance. Our five-year compliance plan tackles all of this and ensures that your business/organisation is PUWER compliant.
