The above mentioned section of Approved Document M includes design considerations and provisions to address the issues mentioned in the introduction. Specifically: “5.4 e. WC compartment doors, and doors to wheelchair-accessible unisex toilets, changing rooms or shower rooms have an emergency release mechanism so that they are capable of being opened outwards, from the outside, in case of emergency.”
All privacy function locksets and most toilet compartment ‘indicator’ bolts offer a means of retracting the latch bolt from the outside – usually via a straightforward tool such as a slotted screw driver. This is a sufficient safeguard in most situations. However, in those instances where there is potential for patients to fall against the inside of doors or for residents of secure units to barricade themselves inside bedrooms then a little more sophistication is called for - i.e. Stanley's Emergency Rescue Hardware Set.
