Coronavirus update

Following the recent covid-19 announcement regarding the closure of non-essential businesses, we would like to reassure our customers that as suppliers of essential emergency equipment to the healthcare sector, we are still open for business.

While our aim is to continue to provide an uninterrupted service, we will continue to monitor the ever changing situation while taking all necessary steps to ensure the wellbeing of both our staff and customers.

Emergency evacuation plans should never be reliant on the intervention of the Fire and Rescue Service to work. It is therefore of paramount importance that staff are fully trained in what to do in an emergency evacuation situation and how to use the evacuation equipment available to them.

Organisations who fail to provide emergency evacuation equipment and appropriate training, also fail to comply with their legal obligations under the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulation 2006, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.

At Hospital Aids we offer, onsite training on our range of evacuation chairs and mats/pad to ensure that staff are familiar with and know how to use their chosen evacuation equipment properly.

Our evacuation chair and product training can be conducted as follows:

  1. Basic staff training courses - which includes both theory and practical sessions for up to 10 people per session (dependent on the size of the facility).
  2. ‘Train the Trainer’ courses - a more in depth session which gives the trainee all the knowledge required, to go on to train other members of staff. These sessions are restricted to a maximum of 6 people.
  3. Refresher training - which includes both theory and practical sessions for up to 10 people per session (dependent on the size of the facility).

We are also able to arrange maintenance on purchased evacuation chairs along with advice on how to ensure your mats and pads are fit for use (no maintenance required on these products).

For more information or to discuss a particular training or maintenance requirement please contact us for details.
