Session 1: Welcome

Session 2: Onshore Emergency Response
Session Partner: SafetyOn
Although the onshore renewable industry shares a number of characteristics with other industries, the remoteness of location and the demands of an elevated and constrained work place creates a unique environment and requires specific emergency procedures. This session will discuss processes that if followed should allow duty holders 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.
