Own safety first

Concern for safety in Incident Management appears to be in stark contrast to clearing the road for traffic as quickly as possible after an incident has occurred. However, emergency service workers are increasingly becoming involved in serious subsequent incidents on the road, forgetting the potential hazards to their own safety in their urge to process things directly. There are cases of emergency service workers being victims themselves.

In the training of emergency service workers attention therefore also focuses on working alongside the road, the danger of passing or approaching road traffic, possible exposure to hazardous substances or explosion and the unpredictable and/or aggressive behaviour of road users.
