If some is suffering from an epileptic seizure, you must: Protect the injured person when unconscious and get medical help (if necessary). 1.3 Identify the location and use of emergency equiptment, for example, fire/emergency alarm, first aid box. Fire alarms are always located by the entrance/exit door in workplaces, schools and colleges. Fires are not common in schools, but the fire alarm is there just in case of an emergency. First aid boxes are also located somewhere in the workplace, school or college, just in case somebody in injured and in need of medical attention. 2.1 Select and use relevent safety equiptment or clothing for particular tasks. If you were working as a builder, you'd be expected to wear a hard hat, rubber gloves, ladder safety device belts, and other PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). 2.2 Behave in a safe and acceptable manner, for example, maintaining a clean and tidy work area. Most, if not all builders these days, wear things called "visibility jackets". They were designed to be visible on any background no matter what time of day it was, meaning it could been seen during both night and day. 2.3 Use safe manual handling techniques, as appropriate. o You will need proper training.

o Pushing heavy loads is easier on the back than pulling.

o You must bend your knees. Keep your back straight. o Feet/shoulder width apart
