RTC3701A Respond to emergencies

(viewed 728 times)
The following questions directly relate to RTC3701A Respond to emergencies, elements 3. Evaluate the emergency and 4. Act in an emergency

If you have enrolled in this units answer the following questions and post them onto your blog site. I will make comments on whether I need you details or clarification

Scenario
Working back in the office you hear a noise that sounds kind of
close. On investigation you see this coming from the chemical shed
100 metres away, which has herbicides, fungicides, and several drums
of fuel, some empty some not. There appears to be nobody else on
site, but residential houses are only 500 metres away. What would you in the next 30 minutes.

Please refer directly to your company policy, if available for this type of situation

The picture was taken at Parnngurr Community. You have noticed that the vegetable garden needs weeding and your supervisor has asked you to keep it weed free.

1. What equipment would you use to weed this paddock?
2. What type of PPE should be worn (if any) while undertaking this
task?
3. How would you dispose of the weeds that you have removed/killed?
4. When putting the tools back in the shed, you have noticed a shovel
with a cracked handle. What would you do next?

Could you also post pictures onto you moblog site of the garden shed
where your tools are kept. I will be looking at the photo to see if
it is kept tidy and also for hazards, therefore make comments on what
changes to layout you would make, if money was not a limiting factor.
