What we did
Cairn required a method of evacuation for successfully getting disabled staff or visitors out of the building in the event of an emergency. We provided Cairn with evacuation chairs for multiple sites and delivered face-to-face training to help employees successfully and safely operate the equipment.
EvacuRite is designed to fold up into an easy to store and access size and shape - making it ideal for all sized offices. It’s the lightest chair in its class and has a simple rapiddeploy system to avoid hold-ups in the event of an emergency. As with all our products, the EvacuRite is designed for ease-of-use with ergonomic handles for better grip, and a lightweight frame to reduce risks associated with heavy lifting.
- Provide easy-to-use evacuation chairs
- Deliver EvacuRite promptly to multiple sites
- Ensure correct installation and inspection
- Train staff to use equipment safely and successfully
As a safety-conscious employer, we enlisted the help of Posturite to determine a solution for evacuating anyone within our offices at Edinburgh and Glasgow who would be vulnerable should the alarm sound. As a result we obtained EvacuRite chairs for both offices and trained personnel in their safe usage. We can now safely evacuate anyone from both of our offices should an emergency occur.
