Accidents / Incidents: Guidelines


• Stay calm but act swiftly and observe the situation. Is there danger of further injuries?

• Listen to what the injured person is saying.

• Alert the first aider who should take appropriate action for minor injuries.

• In the event of an injury requiring specialist treatment, call the emergency services.

• Deal with the rest of the group and ensure that they are adequately supervised.

• Do not move someone with major injuries. Wait for the emergency medics.

• Contact the injured person’s parent/guardian.

• Complete an incident/accident report form.
