1. Emergency Response Training Emery Oleochemicals LLC Cincinnati, OH
2 Training Objectives 2 The purpose of this training is to provide an overview of the Emery Emergency Response Procedure. This overview will assist employees in their response to an emergency. Topics covered during this training will include the discovery of an incident, notification process and response actions. This training will be followed by a test to verify your understanding of the emergency response procedures.
4 4 This training satisfies the requirements of OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.120, known as the HAZWOPER regulations, for the First Responder Awareness Level. First Responders at the Awareness Level are individuals who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and who have been trained to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper authorities of the release. They would take no further action beyond initial notification.
6 6 Emergencies can include a fire, an explosion, a chemical release, a medical emergency, a bomb threat, or a weather-related emergency. Every employee needs to know how to respond to emergencies to ensure their safety and the safety of their fellow employees.
8 Discovery 8 Anyone may be the first person to discover an incident. If you discover an incident, you must first assess the situation. This would be to determine the type of emergency such as a spill or fire. The person discovering the incident must call 2222, or 482-2222 if from a mobile phone, and report the incident.
10 Notification Procedures 10 What you report when you call 2222 after the discovery of an emergency is very important. This information must include your name, what is the nature of the emergency (such as fire, chemical spill, etc.), and the location of the emergency. Do not hang up until the operator hangs up in case additional information is required. If you are not in imminent danger, stay near the incident scene to direct responders.
11 Notification Procedures 11 Notification to all site employees and to the Emery Emergency Response Team will be initiated by the sounding of the plant horn. A 15-second horn blast indicates an emergency; four blasts indicate a medical emergency; and six blasts indicate a fire emergency. Regardless of the number of times the horn blows, when the horn blows everyone must immediately proceed to the nearest plectron radio to listen to the announcement that will advise the details of the emergency.
13 Vehicle Traffic 13 When the horn blows to notify personnel of an emergency, all vehicle traffic must stop immediately! The roads must be maintained free of traffic to allow for the Emery Response Team and any external responders to have free access to any part of the facility. Traffic must remain stopped until the Incident Commander has determined the incident is under control and it is okay for traffic to move about the plant.
15 Emergency Action Plans 15 Emergency Action Plans are located throughout the plant in control rooms and other strategic locations. The EAPs provide instructions on response actions to be taken by employees, contractors and visitors during an emergency. Every Emery employee must know where the EAP is located for their area and be familiar with the information provided.
16 Emergency Action Plans 16 Emergency Action Plans provide details for your response in an emergency. This include information on plectron locations, what the horn blasts represent, fire evacuations, chemical release, Phase I tornado evacuations, Phase II evacuations (if applicable). The EAP also identifes the designated fire evacuation area, designated shelter-in- place location, designated tornado shelter location, and the plant evacuation shelters. The plant emergency number 2222 is also indicated. ChemicalRelease FireEvacuation Hornblasts Phase I Tornado Phase II Tornado DesignatedLocations EmergencyNumber Plectrons
18 Safety Plot Plan 18 A Safety Plot Plan is posted near plectron radios throughout the plant. This Plot Plan includes details for specific locations of evacuation sites, shelter-in-place sites, plectron locations, and tornado shelters. Employees should be familiar with the information provided on this plan.
20 Fire Emergencies 20 Emery employees are trained to use fire extinguishers for use on small fires. If you discover a fire and are confident to extinguish the fire with a hand held fire extinguisher, proceed to do so. You must advise a second person to call 2222 for notification of the emergency and for a response by the Emery response team. If you believe the fire is too large to extinguish or you are not confident to fight the fire, immediately call 2222 for assistance.
21 Fire Alarms 21 If the fire alarm has sounded in your building, immediately proceed to the meeting location for your building as identified on the Emergency Action Plan for your work area. Do not re-enter the building until told it is safe to do so by the Incident Commander.
23 Shelter-In-Place 23 Shelter-In-Place is used to protect employees from exposure to a hazardous material when the release or exposure will be of short duration. Instructions to shelter-in-place will be given over the plectron radio. There is a SIP kit at every SIP location. This kit is sealed to ensure the required contents are available when needed. Once the kit is opened, instructions on room preparation are included in the kit. Please advise the SHE Department if you observe that an SIP kit seal has been broken. This will allow for verification of the proper contents and re-sealing of the SIP kit.
24 Shelter-In-Place 24 If instructions to SIP are given, use the contents of the SIP kit to seal around windows and doors with plastic and tape. Always seal the door last to allow for people coming to the shelter. Follow the instructions provided in the SIP kit. Remember to turn the ventilation system off. A list of those employees, visitors and contractors present in the shelter as well as those who are known to be missing from the shelter must be provided to the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) or Incident Commander (IC). Stay in the shelter until your are released by the EOC or Incident Commander.
26 Emergency Evacuation 26 The instructions to evacuate will be provided over the plectron radio system. An evacuation may be required for a release of a hazardous chemical, a major fire, a bomb threat, an earthquake or terrorism. Evacuation sites are identified on the Safety Plot Plan by a green box around a building. Evacuation locations are building 63 (cafeteria), building 65 (inside area near reclaim), building 66 (warehouse), and building 84 (basement). In the event of an evacuation, instructions will be provided as to which shelter or shelters to use.
28 Tornado Evacuation 28 The instructions to initiate a tornado evacuation will be provided over the plectron radio system. Evacuation sites are identified on the Safety Plot Plan by a blue box around a building. Emery tornado evacuation locations are building 6A storeroom, building 32 basement, building 63 locker room, and building 84 basement.
29 Tornado Evacuation 29 Tornado evacuations may be done in two phases. A Phase I evacuation is for all non- operating personnel to evacuate. This would occur when a tornado warning has been sounded in Hamilton County. A Phase II evacuation will be required for all personnel when a tornado warning has been issued by the National Weather Service and there are indications of tornado activity in the area. All personnel must evacuate to a tornado shelter for a Phase II evacuation. Emery employees are informed at orientation if they are required to evacuate for a Phase I evacuation. If you are not sure when you must evacuate for a tornado, contact your supervisor.
30 Conclusion 30 Knowing what to do should an emergency occur is extremely important for your safety and for the safety of others. A proper response will protect your safety or possibly save your life. If you have any questions concerning your response in any emergency situation, please discuss this with your supervisor or any member of the SH&E staff. Please complete the exam for this training session.
