What is covered in the guide?

Fire Safety Risk Assessment Supplementary Guide Means of Escape for Disabled People covers:
  • Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEPS) for employees and regular visitors
  • Standard plans for occasional visitors and unknown or uncontrolled visitors
It deals with consultation and the communication process, as well as recruitment and training. It also covers peoples preferred options for escape, including:
  • Mobility impaired people
  • Wheelchair users (including electrically powered wheelchairs)
  • Carry down procedures
  • Hearing impaired and deaf people
  • Visually impaired and blind people
  • People with cognitive disabilities
Legal Overview:

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) underpins the current fire safety legislation in England and Wales - the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 - by requiring that employers or organisations providing services to the public take responsibility for ensuring that all people, including disabled people, can leave the building they control safely in the event of a fire.

Where an employer or a service provider does not make provision for the safe evacuation of disabled people from its premises, this may be viewed as discrimination. It may also constitute a failure to comply with the requirements of the fire safety legislation mentioned above.

Public bodies have an additional duty, called the Disability Equality Duty (DED) which from December 2006 requires them to proactively promote the equality of disabled people. This will require them to do even more to ensure that disabled people do not face discrimination by not being provided with a safe evacuation plan from a building.
