Operational Assurance quality assure DSFRSs approach and compliance with national guidance on Incident Command System and our own internal policies. This will ensure continuing improvement and that personnel are adequately supported in order to meet the guiding principles of the Health, Safety and Welfare Framework 2013.
The guiding principles are:
- Recognition that the ICs are accountable and accept responsibility for the information recorded on all Incident Command Documentation.
- Engagement with the workforce, encouraging and establishing and upward trend of form completion so promoting an improving the health and safety culture.
- The personal responsibilities of the IC are clear so that Health, Safety and Welfare is embedded in all activities.
- Provision of quality training and ongoing performance feedback to ensure all personnel are competent .
The feedback report is designed to highlight learning opportunities and best practice which will inform other Support Departments. With the post Incident nature of the quality assurance process, a certain degree of interpretation will have to be used. The intention is for feedback to be based on the paperwork submitted and incident log.
This will involve the routine systematic check of all, Incident Handover Forms, Event & Decision Logs and Analytical Risk Assessments that have been submitted.
Please state clearly the learning outcomes identified?
