SafetyOn has released its first good practice guideline for developing emergency response procedures for the onshore wind industry. The document has been developed through industry collaboration and adopts a risk based approach to managing emergency situations. The aim is to provide a process that if followed should allow the duty holder to develop plans and procedures to mitigate the consequence of incidents and help protect casualties until they can be delivered to an ultimate place of safety.
The guidance is built upon the RenewableUK (RUK) Integrated Offshore Emergency Response (IOER) document, further developed and tailored to the onshore wind industry by a dedicated work group and approved by the SafetyOn Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). The document was published in September 2020 and jointly badged by SafetyOn and RUK.
