Evac+Chair prides itself on going above and beyond for its customers. Not just from providing the best means of escape, but to educate and raise awareness of the changing nature of risks around evacuation. Therefore, Evac+Chair conducts regular market research and insight on how the industry and trends are changing within evacuation.
Last year, Evac+Chair conducted a survey, questioning visitors to the Health & Safety Event at the NEC. This raised some astonishing results including 40% of visitors thought their main risk for evacuation was fire.
This lead Evac+Chair to invite industry experts to attend a roundtable event to discuss these results in depth. The findings from this discussion highlighted that there are seven changing factors towards risk and evacuation. These include:
- Workforce demographic
- Work Patterns
- Built Environment
These findings were then presented into a formal whitepaper for all customers to download for free. Evac+Chair has also presented its findings at Health & Safety events across the country to try and educate customers of the changing nature of risk.
