This is a municipal administration of a larger municipality.
The man has a muscle disease and is therefore dependent on the use of a wheelchair. His reach and mobility are restricted due to his disability. The man's GdB
(degree of disability) is 100.
The man works as an administrative assistant at the municipal administration.
The employee's workplace is located on the fifth floor of the office building. He can reach and leave the fifth floor without barriers using the existing lifts. In an emergency (fire, etc.
), the use of the lifts is prohibited for reasons of assurance (e.g. power failure for the lift, smoke interferes with the light barriers and these no longer release the doors - people are thus trapped in the lift / building). Employees must therefore use the stairwell in accordance with the escape plan or escape route. This is not possible for the employee who is dependent on a wheelchair due to his disability. To solve the problem, a special evacuation chair (see picture) was purchased for people with limited mobility, which was positioned or provided on the fifth floor and near the stairwell. The foldable evacuation chair with sliding straps enables a colleague to quickly evacuate an employee with a disability via the stairwell in an emergency as part of a pre-defined rescue plan - this is also used in fire drills.
