FEP process team completes fire safety training
Colleagues from the process team at Fife Ethylene Plant recently completed their practical fire safety training run by the Fire and Rescue Service at Edinburgh Airport.
The shift team emergency response training is undertaken every three years and was run by the fire service at Edinburgh Airport for the first time. As experts on how to prevent and control fire hazards they shared their knowledge and led hands-on firefighting activities in which colleagues had to work as a team to extinguish fires in a controlled test environment.
Incident Controller Training has also recently taken place at the plant, teaching frontline colleagues to lead and manage a safe response to a site incident.
This training is part of our commitment to creating a workplace free of injuries and incidents and forms part of a wider ongoing programme of induction training, emergency training and monthly role-play exercises where hypothetical incident scenarios include things like protest activity, gas leaks and injuries to on-site personnel.
