Assembly Point / Incident Reporting
In the event of an evacuation; all staff are to gather at the site assembly point 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 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 closest hospital to Knockalough windfarm is Galway University Hospital.
