Assembly Point / Incident Reporting
In the event of an evacuation; all staff are to gather at the site assembly point which is at the access gate near to the substation building 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.
Prompt reporting of any accident, incident, injury or significant near miss is paramount and these should be reported to the WFO Operational Controller(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 to Boggeragh Windfarm 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 WFO Operational Controller must be informed.
There are welfare facilities at the substation comprising of a toilet and office/rest room. The water on the site is not suitable for drinking and a fresh supply of bottled drinking water should remain readily available.
