A1. Erecting Containment: Site Supervisor

A2. Assuring Ventilation rates and Containment sufficiency: IH Contractor

B. DOT( Owner)

3. Blast and Clean Structure:
The structural steel elements will be blasted to near-white metal using steel shot abrasive.  Abrasive will be vacuumed from the bottom of the containment area, classified, and re-used.  An air filtration system will be used for dust control in the enclosure.  Tarps will be white allowing natural light to penetrate into the
enclosure.

SITE EMERGENCY/RESCUE PROVISIONS:

Evacuation: An evacuation signal of three short blasts followed by three long blasts of the company equipment truck will alert employees outside of containment of the need to evacuate the area.  Because they cannot hear external audible alarms, employees inside the containment area will be alerted to the need to evacuate by signaling through the blast nozzle,  closing the nozzle supply valve at the pot according to the same signal above.  Evacuating employees will meet at the hygiene trailer for further instructions.

Fall Protection Rescue: Employees who are suspended by lanyards after a fall will be winched to safety using a portable winch if they are conscious.  The aerial lift or outside rescue services may also be used to effect a rescue.

Fire: Employees are expected to fight small, incipient stage fires according to training provided.   ABC Fire extinguishers will be located in the hygiene trailer and in company vehicles.

First Aid and Emergency Care: A first aid kit will be maintained by the Site Supervisor.  At least one employee who has received basic first-aid training will be on site at all times.  Minor care can be obtained by taking employees to the Fix-em Minor Emergency Care Center located three blocks from the site on 62nd Avenue.  EMT services should be accessed by cellular phone by calling 911.  EMTs should be directed to take employees to the Good Samaritan Hospital nearest the worksite.
