The activities included in Annex I, while they are in operation, must be provided with sufficient personnel or adequate and sufficient technological systems to identify emergencies and guarantee notification to public services for their management.

The activities in section A of annex I with a high influx of public (over 2.000 people) must have the appropriate personnel for the purposes of preventing and identifying emergencies due to crowds and to guarantee an orderly evacuation or confinement if was necessary.

In this sense, the troops –in its case security guards– that are required by sectoral regulations must be ensured; in the event that nothing is established in this sense, they will be those necessary to achieve these objectives.

In any case, the competent directorate general for civil protection may propose criteria and recommendations, in accordance with the competent administrations and with the favorable report of the Civil Protection Commission of Catalonia.

In the activities affected by section A of Annex I, section a).2, whose area of ​​intervention is equal to or greater than 500 m, and nuclear power plants, considering the potential for external risk, the potential risk of the activity of suffering an intentional attack, the materials associated with the activity and its vulnerability, the identification of emergencies must be ensured in person on a continuous basis and they must have duly trained personnel in the protection and security plans of the center or activity to start the emergency call protocol established in the self-protection plan; they also have to have the automatic video surveillance systems or other corresponding technological systems. Among those affected by epigraph A of the annex, section a). 2, which may cause far-reaching toxic clouds with intervention zones greater than 500 m or with affectation in densely populated areas, agreements will be established with the competent department for civil protection to assess the feasibility of connecting the automatic detection sensor networks to CECAT.

The rest of the activities in section IAa)2 and IAa)3 and the hydraulic infrastructures in section IAd)2 and the facilities included in sections IAd)3 and IAd)4 must ensure this identification permanently, at least through technological systems.

The activities affected by sections IAc)3, IAc)4, IAc)7, IAc)8, IAe) and IAg)1 must have security guards or automatic video surveillance systems that ensure the objectives of identifying emergencies and notice to public services during periods of operation, as a minimum.

In activities in which the health service provider is specifically the public emergency service (Medical Emergency System SEM), it is this service that has to establish the minimum dimensioning of the health facilities.

 

  1. Means of intervention

The activities or centers included in annex I must be equipped with the material means and human equipment of their own or others for self-protection sufficient to propose an adequate response to emergency situations; In any case, it is mandatory to have the material and personal means that are established in the specific sectoral regulations that are applicable.

Regarding the material means of prevention and safety, they are determined in a concrete and specific way by the building regulations on prevention and safety in the event of fire applicable and by the sectoral regulations applicable to specific risk facilities, materials or equipment. .

In the case of the material means of self-protection necessary for the third intervention teams, in addition to those established by the applicable sectoral or specific regulations, they are those regulated by Decree 374/1996, of December 2, for company firefighters or the regulations that replace it.

Regarding the human means of self-protection, which can be the company's own personnel who carry out other functions or specific personnel, or outside personnel who are within the activity or another activity with which it is jointly carried out, establish three levels of intervention teams with three levels of specialization:

First intervention team (EPI): it is a basic level intervention team. Its composition is the responsibility of the owner of the establishment, activity, infrastructure or building, taking into account the risks and dimensioning of the center or activity, and the total available will be determined based on the size and activity of the company, building, establishment or infrastructure. The PPE must have a minimum generic training related to the identification of risk situations and emergency warnings, first intervention in the event of an outbreak of fire, evacuation of the occupants and application of first aid.

The provision of this training to the people who make up the PPE, both initial and periodic, is the responsibility of the owner of the establishment, activity, infrastructure or building.

Second intervention team (ESI): it is an advanced level intervention team. Its composition is the responsibility of the owner of the establishment, activity, infrastructure or building, taking into account the risks and dimensioning of the center or activity, and the total available will be determined based on the size and activity of the company, building, establishment or infrastructure. The ESI must have training regarding the identification of the specific risks inherent to the activity, building, installation or infrastructure considered, the identification and instructions for use of the specific means of protection against these risks and the procedures for action in case of emergency, complementing that of the PPE. The provision of this training to the people who make up the ESI, both initial and periodic, is the responsibility of the owner of the establishment, activity, infrastructure or building.

Third intervention team (ETI): it is an intervention team with a high level of specialization. The general conditions of organization, operation and qualification and training of the ETI are those regulated by Decree 374/1996, of December 2, for company firefighters, or the regulations that replace it. The provision of this training to the people who make up the ETI, both initial and periodic, as well as the issuance of the corresponding accreditation, must be carried out by the Public Safety Institute of Catalonia or a competent center.

The competent directorate general for prevention, firefighting and rescue and the Public Safety Institute of Catalonia have the powers to determine, where appropriate, the general conditions for sizing, organization, operation and authorization and training of the ETIs currently regulated by Decree 374/1996, of December 2. Likewise, the responsibility for correct sizing lies with the person who owns the facility or activity, insofar as they have to guarantee the appropriate and proportionate response to the risk inherent to it, in the event of possible accidental situations that may arise.

According to the three levels of intervention teams:

It is the responsibility of the owner of the facility or activity to adequately provide PPE and ESI for all the activities listed in Annex I of this Decree based on the size of the work center or activity, the activity carried out, its inherent risks and of the specificity of the protection measures available.

The activities that the sectoral or specific regulations establish and, in any case, the centers or activities of the following sections must be provided with ETI:

  1. – High level establishments of Aa)2 whose intervention area is greater than 500 m.
  2. – The ports of general interest in section Ac)7.
  3. – The airports in section Ac)8 considering the specific requirements of the specific applicable regulations.
  4. – The nuclear power plants of section Ad)1.

In the case of high-level establishments in section Aa)2 whose intervention zone is greater than 500 m and nuclear power plants, they must have TSI whenever they remain in operation or generate risky activity.

It must be borne in mind that activities that are carried out in a linear, dispersed manner or with periods without personnel (railway lines, highways, tunnels, electrical transformation substations, hydroelectric power plants, etc.) must have the corresponding equipment so that They can move quickly to the place of incidence.

Activities with significant risk: activities not included in section B of annex I that are vulnerable or very vulnerable elements according to municipal civil protection planning, or those that, given their internal or external security conditions, present a significant degree of risk to the internal or external population. These activities may be included within the scope of this Decree, in accordance with the provisions of article 17.c).

Activity of a temporary nature: activity classified in the annexes of this Decree and that is carried out in a space or installed in a specific location in an autonomous and independent manner, for a specific period of time and not exceeding one month. Activities of a temporary nature can be punctual or discontinuous (periodic). When a specific temporary activity ceases, it can no longer be carried out again. Discontinuous (periodic) temporary activities, when the activity ceases, are carried out again the same year or also in successive years. Also included in temporary activities are extraordinary ones in accordance with the corresponding sectoral regulations.

Updating of the self-protection plan: action that consists of systematically modifying the data of the self-protection plan that have had some variation, so that the data that appears in the plan is current. The update does not imply a revision of the plan.

Capacity: maximum number of authorized public in accordance with the corresponding license or authorization (basically in public shows and recreational activities) or total public capacity in an enclosure or building.

Evacuation height: the difference in topographic height between the level of an evacuation source and that of the safe outdoor space, in accordance with the Technical Building Code, approved by Royal Decree 314/2006, of March 17.

Basic life support (BAV): ordered sequence of actions that must be carried out in an imminent or effective situation of cardiac arrest, in order to prevent it, if it has not yet occurred, or to treat it, if it has already occurred. This sequence is graphically reflected in the first three rings of the Chain of Survival.

Attendees: number of people who attend an activity carried out in a venue or non-limited space as the public.

Immediate health care (ASI): set of measures intended to treat life-threatening emergencies, including AVB and CPR. It is included in Decree 225/1996, of June 12, which regulates rescue training and chest compressions.

Capacity: maximum number of people provided by law for an activity. In the case of uses foreseen in the Technical Building Code, it is comparable to occupation.

Center, establishment, facility or dependency: the entire area, under the control of an incumbent person, covered or outdoors, where an activity takes place.

Center, establishment, facility or unit of great intrinsic vulnerability: one that, given its own characteristics, is predisposed to suffer damage in an emergency situation. This high vulnerability can be caused, among other things, by a high capacity or occupancy, by the difficulty in the conditions of accessibility of the rescue and rescue services or by the complication of adopting protection measures regarding confinement or evacuation.

Health center: organized set of facilities and technical means in which professionals with training, by their official qualification or professional qualification, and under the direction of a health officer, carry out health activities in order to take care of people's health.

Complex evacuation centre, establishment, installation or unit: those which, due to being prior to the entry into force of Royal Decree 314/2006, of March 17, which approves the Technical Building Code, do not meet the criteria included in this standard to ensure safe evacuation and, in addition, exceed an occupancy of 1.000 people in the case of covered centers, establishments or facilities, and 10.000 people in the case of outdoor activities. Also tunnels and high-rise buildings.

Complex: set of centers, establishments, facilities or dependencies where an activity or set of activities is carried out.

Self-protection conditions: applied to the intrinsic viability of the building or center through the safe application of a self-protection strategy, be it evacuation or confinement to a safe space due to both external and internal risks. Regarding the potential affectation due to the risk of serious accidents (intervention area), it is based on demonstrating that adequate buildings are available for confinement, and in the case of outdoor activities or in fragile infrastructures that are insufficient for confinement , guarantee that the population can access buildings suitable for confinement in less time than that corresponding to irreversible damage. Regarding the risk of flooding, in the case of outdoor activities or with fragile infrastructures insufficient for confinement located in flood-prone areas, for self-protection conditions it must be demonstrated that it is guaranteed that the population can evacuate to safe areas or access buildings suitable for confinement in a time suitably less than the time of affectation and that the necessary forecasting and detection systems exist to ensure it at the time of the emergency.

The Civil Protection Commission of Catalonia may approve criteria to specify this concept.

Confinement: protection measure for people in the event of an accident or emergency, which consists of closing themselves in a protected location sufficiently isolated from the outside and remaining there until conditions outside are safe. In the confinement action, the openings must be carefully sealed, including the air inlets, after having stopped the air conditioning and ventilation installations.

Automated external defibrillator (AED): technical equipment approved for use in accordance with current legislation, capable of analyzing heart rhythm, identifying defibrillation arrhythmias and administering an electric shock to restore a viable heart rhythm, with high levels of safety.

Vulnerable element: element (such as population, building, civil engineering work, infrastructure, economic activity or public service) exposed to suffering damage in the event of a hazard.

Very vulnerable element: element that brings together a particularly sensitive population (sick people, children, the elderly, pregnant women and others that the health group may define) exposed to suffering damage of an intensity greater than the damage that a vulnerable element would suffer in the face of the same danger.

Delimited space or enclosure: space delimited by enclosures, partitions or other perimeter elements specifically installed to create this space. The enclosures have steps or doors to access or exit.

Unbounded Space: Outdoor space that is not bounded by fences, partitions, or other perimeter features specifically installed to create this space. Outdoor venues with a ratio between their surface area in m2 and the number of people occupying it (person ratio RP) greater than 2,5 can be considered undefined spaces for the purposes of this Decree.

Unlimited space of special risk: unlimited spaces that, due to their configuration, have a relationship between the number of people occupying an unlimited space and the width in meters of the steps to access or exit (exit ratio RS) equal or greater to 175 and this may represent a greater risk for people, enclosures must be considered for the purposes of this Decree.

Health establishment: public space equipped with an organized set of technical means and facilities in which trained professionals, by their official qualification or professional qualification, basically carry out health activities of dispensing medicines or individual adaptation of health products. Examples are pharmacies, optical centers and hearing aid centers.

Evacuation or removal: measure of protection of people in the event of an accident or emergency, which consists of leaving an orderly premises, center, establishment, facility or dependency within which the conditions are not safe, and remaining outside it, in a place not affected by the emergency, until the emergency is controlled and the conditions inside guarantee the safety of the occupants.

Approval of self-protection plans: a self-protection plan is approved when it meets all the requirements set out in this Decree and that are applicable to it, and consequently it is:

Complete, with sufficient content in all the sections that are applicable to it.

Concrete, that is, specific to that facility or activity and its current environment.

Non-substantial modification: modification of the characteristics or the operation of an activity, center, establishment, installation or dependency that does not imply foreseeable consequences for people, goods and the environment, from the point of view of civil protection. Modifications that may have consequences on the population in terms of civil protection and that are not of significant magnitude also constitute non-substantial modifications.

Occupancy: maximum number of people that a building, space, establishment, enclosure, facility or dependency can contain, depending on the activity or use that is made and the evacuation elements available. The calculation of the occupancy is made according to the occupancy densities indicated in the current regulations. However, the resulting occupation can be assessed according to the criteria established by the Civil Protection Commission of Catalonia.

Self-protection plans must be based on a risk analysis and must include it. In addition, they have to establish, together with the risks generated by the same activity, the coordination relationship with the territorial, special and specific plans that affect them.

Risk prevention and control: study and implementation of the necessary measures to keep under observation, avoid or reduce potential risk situations and the damage that may arise. Preventive actions can be established before the incident or emergency occurs, as a result of risk analysis and assessment, or after the emergency, based on the experience acquired.
