Implement and maintain an incident command system (ICS).

You must:
(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.
• 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, Training Requirements for Incident Commanders and Specialist Employees, WAC 296-307-70415), they may take control of the incident within their designated role and training level.
You must:
(2) Make sure all employers' emergency responders and their communications are coordinated and controlled by the IC.
The IC may delegate tasks to subordinates (within their training level).
You must:
(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.
