1 PURPOSE & SCOPE
The purpose of this procedure is to outline GE Energy Services’ (GEES) policies for Incident

incidents, injuries, illnesses, spills, releases, property damage and other such events that occur
while working at GEES sites or customersites are identified, reported, investigated and
communicated.

Refer to EHS Manual Glossary.
3 PROCEDURE
3.1. Identifying Reportable Events
3.1.1. All GEES employees and contractors are responsible for identifying and
implementing the local Emergency Response Plan for any work-related event
meeting the following definitions:
• Near Accident (also called Near Miss)
• FirstAid or Minor Injury or Illness
• Property Damage
• Serious Injury or Illness
• Catastrophic Event, including Fatality
• Spill or Release
• Fire
• Explosion
• Threat (mail, telephone, package delivery, workplace violence)
Immediately, in this context means as soon as a person has identified such an
event has occurred or is occurring. Serious, in this context means one (1) or
more personshospitalized for more than observation, all fatalities, as well as any
reportable spill, release, or catastrophic event.
3.2. Reporting an Event
3.2.1. All employees or contractors working for GEES companies shall immediately
report all events (as listed above) to their supervisor or GEES contact. See
Appendix D for Process flow.
3.2.2. Supervisors or contractor contacts shall immediatelyreport the incident to
their EHS Representative or Site Manager.
3.2.3. EHS HQ shall be contacted immediately (including weekends, holidays and at
night) for any serious event including serious injury, fatality, fire, explosion,
spill, release or threat.
3.2.4. All reported events shall be summarized and entered into an on-line EHS
tracking database (Measurements Reporting) within 1 businessday.
3.2.5. For U.S. operations, any incident that is fatal to one or more employees, or
any incident requiring one or more employees to be admitted to a hospital for
other than observation, requires immediate notification of the EHS HQ and the

notification of the government labor agency (OSHA) within 8 hours of theoccurrence. EHS HQ shall be consulted prior to government notification. The

differ from Federalrules on reporting a serious, work related injury. Consult
