Implement and maintain an incident command system (ICS).

(1) The employer must make sure a single individual, acting as the incident commander (IC), is in charge of the site-specific incident command system (ICS) and acts within their designated role and training level.
For multiemployer worksites:
1. The IC has responsibility for controlling emergency response operations at the site for all employers.
2. Emergency response plans should be consistent in designating who assumes the IC position.
3. If the first employee arriving at the scene is not trained as an IC (see Table 5, Training Requirements for Incident Commanders and Specialist Employees, WAC 296-307-70415), they may take control of the incident within their designated role and training level.
(2) The employer must make sure all employers' emergency responders and their communications are coordinated and controlled by the IC.
The IC may delegate tasks to subordinates (within their training level).
(3) The employer must make sure each employer at the scene has designated a representative to assist the IC.
(4) The employer must establish security and control of the site as specified in your written emergency response plan.
