§ 60 Emergency sickbay

Permanently manned facilities shall have an emergency sickbay in addition to a health department.
The treatment capacity shall be in accordance with the defined hazard and accident situations as mentioned in Section 17 of the Management Regulations.
The emergency sickbay shall be equipped such that it can provide prudent first aid and medical treatment.
Section last changed: 01 January 2011

The emergency unit will normally be a room that has another primary function, but that can quickly be converted into an emergency sickbay if necessary.
In order to fulfil the requirements relating to the emergency sickbay, the NORSOK standard C-001 Chapter 7.21 should be used.
