Control measure Task rotation
Control measure knowledge
Personnel attending an incident may need to be deployed as teams. These teams should be of an appropriate size to carry out the task and sufficient to allow task rotation. The use of task rotation may help to minimise the exposure of personnel to the hazards present.
If possible, personnel should share tasks, roles and functions and should manage team and task rotation if appropriate.
Develop tactical guidance and support arrangements for the hazards and actions to be taken when managing the appropriate deployment of resources
Keep the number of people exposed to the hazard at a minimum and reduce time of exposure through task rotation
