Emergency procedure preparation: emergency kits and information

Arrangements should be in place to effectively deal with potential emergencies.

Careful planning on site could help to save lives.

The construction industry can pose a number of risks to operatives, therefore it is vital that emergency procedures are not only well implemented but also communicated effectively to the workforce.

Below is an example of how sites can effectively safeguard their workforce:

  • An emergency kit containing food, energy bars, drinks and blankets were made for crane drivers in the event of an emergency;
  • A ‘Fire Information’ cupboard was placed at the entrance of the site, providing relevant COSHH and risk information to fire fighters should they need to attend in the event of an emergency.
