In the case of an emergency, all staff need to be safely evacuated from the building. When an employer does not make provision for the safe evacuation of disabled people, this is discrimination.

The Disabled People Evacuation Programme teaches staff and carers how to safely evacuate disabled people in the event of an emergency.

It teaches the dos and the don’ts, how to use the equipment properly and how to identify a suitable and safe escape plan. The programme is completely free.
