					THERAPOSTURE LTD RISER RECLINER SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT FORM The purpose of this form is to assess the risks relating to the potential dangers of crush injury in relation to the use of Riser-Recliner chairs in the clients’ house. This should not affect any other decision about the specification of the chair, including the requirement for a carer control pedal or any other normal alteration. 1. The most important question which needs to be answered is: Are there going to be children under 12 years living at, or visiting the place where the chair will be installed, who might be left unsupervised with the chair? If the answer to this question is YES, then Theraposture Ltd will NOT supply a chair without an anti-crush device fitted. 2. A chair with an anti crush device may require resetting. The next question to be asked is: whether the user, relatives or regular visitors such as carers could do this. If the answer to this question is YES, then the chair complete with anti-crush can be supplied. 3. If the answer to question 1. is YES but question 2 is NO then unfortunately Theraposture Ltd will be unable to supply a chair for safety reasons. 4. If the answer to question 1 is NO – Then, on the customers instructions, Theraposture Ltd will supply a chair without an anticrush device fitted. However the following must have been explained to the client: a) The device could stop damage to both the chair and items such as walking frames/sticks if they get stuck inside the mechanism. b) The device could stop injury or death to pets. c) A chair fitted with a safety device is safer than a chair without one.

The customer must now sign this form using the most appropriate paragraph below, deleting the other: I (…………………………………………….) 1. Have explained that I have children who live with or visit me as described in (1) above, and that I must order a chair with an anti crush device. I can also ensure that the system can be reset if necessary. Have had the benefits of anti-crush fully explained to me, and have fully understood this risk assessment. The choice as to whether to fit an anti crush is mine and I would like to order, or authorise to be ordered on my behalf, a chair WITH / WITHOUT [delete one] an anti-crush device fitted.
