Making Emergency Details more Accessible

Arrangements should be in place to effectively deal with emergencies.

Information should be gathered into an easily accessible place. This will ensure that your site is fully prepared for any incidents or accidents that could potentially occur.

Examples of how sites have made emergency details easily accessible include:

  • Details of the site’s emergency procedures plan were kept prominently in a ‘black box’ in the site office and evacuation drills regularly practised;
  • Basic information for the emergency services were kept in a grab box, mounted adjacent to the site gate. The fire service was notified and given duplicate keys;
  • The team designed, and had manufactured, mobile phone stickers using the IFE logo (Injury Free Environment) to be given to everyone on site, to record their ICE Number (In Case Of Emergency);
  • This was designed to make details available quickly, in case of an emergency.
