People often underestimate the danger of a fire and are unsure of what to do if they have to use a fire extinguisher. This is why the ITER Safety and Security Department is offering regular training to members of the ITER First Aid Team. The purpose of this training is to provide instructions on how to fight a fire and understand the limitations associated with a portable fire extinguisher. For more information on the use of these extinguishers please click here.
A first training session took place on 30 April, followed by another one on 5 May, attended by 17 participants in total. All of the participants are or will be part of the ITER First Aid Team. Safety Notice Boards with the names of First Aid Team members to contact in case of emergency are now available in every building. In case of an accident or sudden illness of an employee, please warn the person on this list nearest to the incident. return to Newsline #81
