Members of staff with a disability which prevents them vacating their place of work in the event of an emergency, must have a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP). The PEEP will be arranged by the Equal Opportunities Manager in consultation with the Fire Safety Officer. It should be noted that such a disability may arise temporarily, e.g. as the result of a sports injury. Managers with responsibility for staff with disabilities should liaise with Mr Paul Browne, Equal Opportunities Manager.
Students who would have similiar problems evacuating a building must also have a PEEP. Staff in schools with responsibility for students with a disability should contact Disability Services to make arrangements for a review of the individual needs of the student in question.
