ALTRAD Life-Saving Actions
The ALTRAD Life-Saving Actions are key activities which describe the necessary actions and behaviours that individuals must perform to protect themselves and others from significant unwanted events during identified, higher-risk activities. Considering the focus on desired behaviours and actions, the ALTRAD Life-Saving Actions incorporate human factors and influences, by considering:
- Task (what are people being asked to do)
- People (who is doing the task)
- Environment (where are they working).
In addition to these common activities, we also acknowledge two essential processes, risk planning and verification, which are key to supporting these actions. Risk planning is vital to setting up any task for successful execution, and verification through the validation of activities, ensuring continuous assessment and demonstration of effective risk management.
