IRSM Approve Evacusafe’s Evacuation Chair Training

23 September 2013

Evacusafe’s training courses have today received further professional approval, this time from The International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

The IIRSM is based in UK and was established in 1975 as a professional body for health and safety practitioners. In addition to the training Evacusafe have also been awarded training centre and individual trainer accreditation.

If you look at their website it is clear that the IIRSM’s main objective is “to advance public education in accident prevention and occupational health in industry”.  Therefore when they thoroughly assess the quality of health & safety training, the IIRSM looks carefully at the standard of each area of a course to ensure that it meets strict standards, in order to provide the best possible training materials for the trainee.

Earlier this year we saw Evacusafe’s courses gain the approval of The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).  With such recognition from two of the main professional bodies in the Health & Safety field, it’s easy to see that Evacusafe’s evacuation equipment training courses can be taken with confidence and peace of mind that you will be receiving the best training on the market, direct from the manufacturer.

Paul Mitchell, Director of Evacusafe says “We’re thrilled to receive this further accreditation.  To have the official stamp of approval of both RoSPA and the IIRSM for our courses is superb, but to have our individual instructors and training centre approved is a massive plus for us.

Our courses have become increasingly popular in recent months, in particular the online training which offers such great value for money.  It’s easy for our customers to see that we offer some of the best training in the evacuation chair industry which now has the approval of two of the top professional bodies ”.

Evacusafe’s Evacuation Chair Training Courses consist of a short theory session covering key areas such as risk assessment and legislation along with practical use of the chair.  Each
trainee will benefit from having:
A basic understanding of fire regulations affecting mobility-impaired people
A better understanding of access and egress issues affecting those with a mobility impairment
An understanding of who may need the equipment and reasons to evacuate a building
An understanding of the manual handling and correct use of an evacuation chair

When a course is taken online the trainee is provided with video and training materials to cover the same areas as the practical onsite course, but they are able to take the training at a place and time that is most convenient to them.  All successful candidates receive a certificate fully endorsed by IIRSM.

In addition to Evacuation Chair Training, Evacusafe also offer training courses on other types of evacuation equipment such as Evacuslider Rescue-sheets and  Patient Transport / Ambulance Chairs.
