Conformance: Under the Disabled Discrimination Act 2005 and Equality Act 2010, it is unlawful to discriminate against any person with regard to any disability they may have. This includes the evacuation of premises in the event of a fire. Being left behind in a building while other colleagues are leaving, is not only unsafe but is a clear breach of legislation. Correct procedures must be in place in the event of an incident. These procedures need to be learnt and practiced by anybody responsible for evacuating a building using evacuation equipment.
