For example, the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (s.20) indicates that employers must eliminate risks to health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable; and if it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate risks to health and safety, to reduce those risks so far as is reasonably practicable. The reasonably practicable definition looks at a) the likelihood of the hazard or risk concerned eventuating; the degree of harm that would result if the hazard or risk eventuated; what the person concerned knows, or ought reasonably to know; the availability and suitability of ways to eliminate or reduce the hazard or risk; the cost of eliminating or reducing the hazard or risk. What is an Evacuation chair? Evacuation Chairs are compact and foldable mobile chairs used to evacuate people with a disability down stairs. Evacuation chairs may be manual or have a battery powered motor. The chairs have wheels and rubber tracks which allow for a controlled decent down stairs. Generally evacuation chairs have speed regulation devices and braking systems that control the speed of descent and have an additional brake when stationary. The seats have adjustable safety straps to secure the person to the seat during transport. Evacuation Chairs are normally operated by one person. However, some models allow for 2 people to evacuate a person up stairs. Evacuation Chairs are particularly important for those persons who have mobility limitations. They are particularly useful for people who are wheelchair dependent, where in the event of an emergency are unable to use a lift and are unable to exit the building via the stairs. Where Should Evacuation Chairs Be Provided? - Schools and Colleges - Factories - Hospitals - Sports Stadiums - Shops - Offices - Cinemas - Libraries - Banks - Aged Care Homes - Museums and Galleries
