Seismic Safety (adapted from Employee-Safety Handbook)
Earthquakes are frequent occurrences in California. Education and advance preparation are essential to earthquake preparedness and safety. Every employee can play a part in seismic safety by following some basic guidelines:
· Secure heavy equipment and properly store hazardous materials. Never store heavy items on top of cabinets or shelves or place them around exits. Facilities Management can anchor equipment and furniture to walls and install appropriate restraints for other items.
· Practice “Drop, Cover, and Hold” drills every month in every classroom. Practice taking cover so that it becomes second nature to you in the event of an earthquake. Always take cover quickly during an earthquake, because you face the greatest risk of injury from falling materials and flying items.
· Drop, cover and hold on. Get under a strong desk or table. If there is not adequate cover, move to a corridor, sit on the floor and brace yourself against a wall while covering your head.
· Avoid windows and objects that can fall.
· Be prepared for aftershocks.
· Check the people around you for injuries and provide first aid.
· Remain in the building if the quake was minor.
· Evacuate the building if the quake was severe and proceed to your designated emergency evacuation point.
· If you are outdoors: Move to a clear area, avoiding buildings and trees.
· If you are trapped in debris:
o Move as little as possible so that you don’t kick up dust. Cover your nose and mouth with a handkerchief or clothing.
o Tap on a pipe or wall so that rescuers can hear you. Use a whistle if one is available.
· Never use elevators during an earthquake, even if they appear safe.
· After a major earthquake, don’t use elevators until they have been evaluated by the proper authorities.
· Don’t run outdoors. You can be killed or injured by falling debris. It is safer to remain indoors, unless there is a fire or gas leak.
· Don’t move seriously injured persons unless they are in immediate danger of a gas leak, hazardous material spill, fire or falling debris.
