This unit focuses on the skills needed for handling gas infrastructure emergencies. It covers responding to incidents involving gas distribution or transmission pipelines, ensuring safety, and documenting the response.
These incidents include gas leaks, outages, security breaches, fires, injuries, and damage.
The process involves assessing the situation, securing the area, and informing the response center. It also means coordinating with authorities, staying on-site safely until more help arrives, and reporting to the control center.
On-site staff identify gas leak sources, report to the response center, manage ignition sources, ensure ventilation and evacuation, and collaborate with authorities and emergency services.
This applies to gas distribution and transmission, following workplace safety rules.
No special licenses or certifications are needed for this section.
