Collective measures have several advantages. They are easier to use, protect everyone at risk in the work area and need less effort in terms of maintenance and helmets, bump caps, hairnets and fire fighters’ helmets user training. Personal measures have disadvantages – they require a high level of training and maintenance and they only protect the user.

If there is a accident that is much more serious then the emergency services
my need to be called upon. In this case work within the area of the accident would have to cease and the Health and Safety Executive informed. They may then have to conduct an investigation and take statements and could even halt work on the site.

Should there be a fire within the vicinity of your work, then you will need to raise the alarm immediately and evacuate the site in an orderly fashion to their fire assembly point, where a resister of all personnel whom have checked in onsite will need to be accounted for.
