(1) Make sure a single individual, acting as the incident commander (IC), is in charge of the site-specific incident command system (ICS) and acts within their designated role and training level.
|Note: ||• For multiemployer worksites: |
| ||– The IC has responsibility for controlling emergency response operations at the site for all employers. |
| ||– Emergency response plans should be consistent in designating who assumes the IC position. |
| ||• If the first employee arriving at the scene is not trained as an IC (see Table 5, Competencies for Incident Commanders, WAC 296-824-30005), they may take control of the incident within their designated role and training level. |
(2) Make sure all employers' emergency responders and their communications are coordinated and controlled by the IC.
|Note: ||The IC may delegate tasks to subordinates (within their training level). |
(3) Make sure each employer at the scene has designated a representative to assist the IC.
(4) Establish security and control of the site as specified in your written emergency response plan.
