The purpose of a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (also known as a PEEP) is to provide people who cannot get themselves out of a building unaided with any necessary information and assistance needed to be able to manage their escape to a place of safety.
It is your duty as an employer to ensure you have taken into account the needs of all people who may be in the building. You may identify a plan is needed for someone with:
- Mobility impairment
- Sight impairment
- Hearing impairment
- Cognitive impairment
- A medical condition or injury which might cause them to need assistance to evacuate safely
