Evacuation Chair Servicing
Regular servicing of your safety equipment is imperative to the assurance of anyone who is trained to use it in the case of an emergency situation. Operatives need to know 100% that the equipment will function perfectly.
How Often Should the Chairs be Serviced?
Although all of our full range of equipment is made from the most durable materials and every chair is inspected by a professional Evacusafe engineer before it leaves the warehouse, we still recommend all equipment be inspected and serviced annually.
Where Should the Chairs be Serviced?
Evacusafe recommends your emergency equipment be serviced by experts. Our fully qualified engineers can visit your site and carry out the servicing for you there. Why would you not want a company, with vast experience in the design and manufacture of emergency equipment to assist you in carrying out your safety checks?

Why do the Chairs Need Servicing?
Servicing ensures that your chair/s will be in pristine working order if the time comes when they are required. It is paramount that an annual service takes place and there are now government guidelines available in the form of PUWER Regulations (Provision and Use of Works Equipment Regulations 1998).
PUWER Regulations are designed to cover general workplaces such as offices, shops, hospitals, care homes, building sites, farms, factories and anywhere that work equipment and machinery are used.
It is intended to be used as guidance for professional health and safety inspections by safety professionals who provide health and safety services for medium to large companies (eg trainers and officers).
The document is also intended to be used by law enforcement officers and on occasion by HSE inspectors and other legal professionals.
The structure of the chair will be checked to ensure it is intact. The battery cells should be replaced every two years to ensure the reliability of the equipment. We can arrange professional expert servicing for your equipment to assist you in meeting your requirements with the PUWER Regulations (Provision and Use of Works Equipment Regulations 1998).
