Record personal exposure

Control Measure Knowledge

Exposure to a hazardous material may have acute or chronic effects. In every case, the exposure needs to be recorded by the fire and rescue service (FRS) in a manner that allows the information to be readily accessed in the days following the exposure. It also needs to form part of the individual’s employment health record, as in some cases this is required by law.

Where information is stored for access in the days following exposure, it is advised that this information is stored so that it can be accessed 24 hours a day by a person with the authority to pass personal details to a medical professional, once all necessary confirmation of identity has been carried out.
