    Very enjoyable. Apprehensive about using the chair but the training eased the concerns and have since provided some training.

      Hi Mark, Thank you for your review. Look forward to seeing you on a course again soon. Best regards. Chris.

  2. Anonymous

    The course was interesting and informative. We were given good information regarding the different types of chair available and tried out three different designs during the practical which did highlight that all have their limitations, especially on narrow stairwells, and that all types require a team of two people to use them safely and facilitate the safe evacuation of the disabled person. The fact that the evac chair should be used as a ‘one person one way’ rescue device was also highlighted, so in many situations multiple chairs and two person operator teams will be required. A section on the requirement for maintenance and testing under PUWER was included.
    The end of course assessment was a short but to the point, very similar in format to the asbestos awareness assessment. All in all a valuable course and quite enjoyable.
