Assembly Point / Incident Reporting

In the event of an evacuation; all staff are to gather at the nearest assembly point near to the but as not to cause an obstruction to any emergency vehicles. If the site is evacuated, a head count will be carried out at the assembly point by the lead technician or subcontractor supervisor who will also contact the OC. There are two assembly points, one at the substation at Bawnmore 1 and the other at the entrance to Bawnmore 2.

Prompt reporting of any accident, incident, injury or significant near miss is paramount. These should be reported to the site manager and OC at the safest and earliest opportunity. In the case of a serious injury, raise the alarm and call for help immediately if safe to do so. The nearest hospital for both sites is Cork University Hospital located in Wilton.

First aid provision is located in the substation and in each WTG if required. If ANY first aid equipment is used, the Operational Controller must be informed.

The water on the site is not suitable for drinking and a fresh supply of bottled drinking water should remain readily available.
