Companies have a legal and moral responsibility for managing safety and loss control. This includes having an effective Emergency Control and Response Plan.

The components of an emergency management framework are:
? prevention;
? being prepared;
? response; and
? recovery.

A broken link in the chain can result in serious or catastrophic consequences. Therefore, we all need to
know how to respond in an emergency situation.

Emergency Control and Response - Safety Talk

  1. 1. Emergency Control & Response Page 1 of 12 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST083 Revision 2013 1.0 This pack contains: • 9 - Page Talk Text • 9 - OHP Presentation Slide Pack Using the talks (Extract “How to Present Safety Talks”): Plan which topic you want to discuss with your team. Read through the script before you hold the meeting to familiarise yourself with the material. Start the talk with a comment that makes the topic relevant to the team. For example, if you have seen a number of people using ladders incorrectly, use this as your opening comment. Follow the script but don’t read straight from the page. The script is only a prompt and it will sound better if you use your own words. Ask the questions as they appear in the script. It is important you do this because they are a lead in to the next section of your talk. Give the team enough time to answer the questions. Safety talks can be boring for the team if you are the only one talking. Hand out the information sheets as they appear in the script. Don’t hand out all the information sheets at the start of the talk otherwise there is a temptation for the team to read ahead and not listen to the points you are making. Collect the information sheets at the end of the talk so they can be used again.

  2. 2. Emergency Control & Response Page 4 of 12 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST083 Revision 2013 1.0 WHAT IS AN EMERGENCY Before we talk about how to prevent and respond to an emergency situation, let’s define an emergency and look at some of the types of emergency. “What is an emergency?” Hand out sheet 1 – What is an emergency We should think of an emergency as a threat. The types of incident that may impact on us are: fire; explosion; chemical spill; ground collapse; vehicle accidents; natural disasters; underground mine of tunnel or shaft collapse; underground mine winder failures; breakdown of services; and bomb threats. PREVENTION PLANNING When assessing how we work, we must consider the probability of an event happening and the degree of severity of the outcome. These details should be incorporated into our work procedures and emergency prevention plans. The objectives of an emergency plan are to: prevent injuries; reduce property loss and damage; reduce production delays; maintain good public relations; and minimise the impact on the environment. “What are some of the elements of prevention?” Hand out sheet 2 – Elements of prevention This document is a partial preview.

  3. 3. Emergency Control & Response Page 7 of 12 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST083 Revision 2013 1.0 EMERGENCY PLANNING We need to think of what to do if we are presented with an emergency situation at our work site. In the event of an emergency situation, it is critical that we know how to react to the emergency by following plans and procedures and follow directions given by the warden. A typical emergency control plan will have a policy statement and an action plan detailing: the potential threat; resources and services available to meet the identified threat; the allocation of responsibilities; and specific actions for emergency operations and response. In your work place and in any new situation, make yourself familiar with the current plans and evacuation procedures and make sure you can identify the wardens or control officers. “What do the emergency plans look like?” Hand out sheet 5 – Emergency plans The emergency plans can be in the form of: written procedures; photographs; floor plans of buildings; and charts that show the roles and responsibilities of personnel. The control plan should also include a system for reviewing the situation after the emergency. Areas addressed should include: identifying any deficiencies in the response capability; conducting necessary investigations; following up any actions that need to be taken; and recovering from the emergency. (A process by which persons who have been adversely affected by the emergency can be helped to manage the trauma.) RESPONSE As part of the planning process, various people will be given specific roles to perform in the event of an emergency.

  4. 4. Emergency Control & Response Page 10 of 12 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST083 Revision 2013 1.0 “If you are trapped and cannot move via the normal access ways, what should you do?” Hand out sheet 9 – If you are trapped inside a building Some procedures to follow in this situation are: move to a place or room that has a telephone or radio and try to contact others, e.g. wardens; seal the room against smoke by closing the doors. If possible, wet the walls and fill any cracks in room with wet cloths or towels; only escape through a window if all other exits are cut off; if you must use a window, do not jump. Lower yourself as far as possible; try to jump into something that will soften your fall; and when falling is unavoidable, protect your head with your arms. This document is a partial preview.
