R717 - EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
We practice incident mitigation every single day at work, putting on safety boots and Hi-Viz, completing permits to work, and JSA’s have all become a subconscious ritual and quite rightly so. However, emergency response and business recovery are not practised or tested anywhere enough in comparison -opening an emergency response plan during an actual incident should not be the first time it is put to use.
When the loss of containment of Anhydrous Ammonia occurs, making the right calls can heavily impact the outcome of the situation – this can often mean the difference between financial losses, environmental damage, serious injury or life and death.
Trigger Action Response Planning (TARP™) is an Emergency management solution developed in collaboration with New Zealand Mines Rescue that allows businesses to manage hazardous substance emergencies. TARP™ employs; risk-based, legislatively compliant triggers for activation, standardised process maps and scalable duty cards to maintain optimum situational awareness and a clear interface between all stakeholders during an emergency.
This course’s key objective is to develop a level of confidence and competency for leadership roles to manage the loss of Anhydrous Ammonia’s containment.
The content includes key emergency response elements, focusing on the Coordinated Incident Management System (CIMS) and Incident Management Team (IMT) duties when applied to an Ammonia incident.
