Evacuation procedures

Learning from accidents and incidents is an important way to continually improve safety on site.

By regularly practising fire drills and evacuation processes, the workforce are able to understand safety procedures which will be beneficial if a real-life incident was to occur.

Beneath is an example of how sites have stayed on top of evacuation procedures:

  • The site formed an association with Professor Edwin R Galea of the University of Greenwich, to carry out investigative procedures to understand behaviour and attitudes during an evacuation on a live construction project;
  • Professor Galea has been involved in formulating emergency and evacuation procedures from ships and cruise liners and was involved in the investigation works following 9/11.
