As it is important to understand the regulations governing safety in the workplace, a wallchart may be displayed, for instance, at a common meeting point. This is a great way to broach the need for methodologies, and employees will be prompted to keep in line with protocols such as regular testing of Residual Current Devices (RCDs) and knowing where underground cables run.

When phoning emergency services, DO NOT hang up at any stage of the conversation. The operator will terminate the call when appropriate. You should determine responsiveness and whether the casualty is breathing before speaking to the emergency services because this enables them to assign the appropriate priority to your situation. Cool the burn with wet dressings (or special burn dressings) after placing them in the recovery position. Remove your mouth to the side and let the chest fall. Inhale some fresh air and repeat these steps so you have given 2 effective rescue breaths in total.Ask a helper to call 999 for an ambulance and then to bring an AED if available. If you are alone, make the call yourself. If standing, the casualty will almost definitely collapse during a major seizure. Try to control the fall.
