Toolbox Talk Emergency Response #1

Emergency Preparedness Reminders: If you’ve ever been the first one on the scene at a car accident or working next to someone who had a traumatic injury, then you know how important it is to react quickly and correctly during an emergency situation. So, what would you do if there was an emergency at work? The stress of the situation can cause us to forget some of the basics. To ensure a smooth process, please familiarize yourself with your company’s emergency response plan. What number do you call for emergency services? Where is the nearest fire extinguisher? Do you know where to meet if you’re required to evacuate? These are just a few things that each of us should know while at work. We may not be emergency personnel, but when an accident is upon us, every second counts so make sure you know what to do!
