 +  - **DANGER:​** ​ Ensure that yourself, others and the patient are not in further danger
 +  - **RESPONSE:​** – Check for response from patient. ​ If no response - call for help.  If response, make patient comfortable,​ check for injuries and monitor response
 +  - **SEND:** for help – call 000 or ask another person to make the call
 +  - **ADMINISTER:​** appropriate first aid, including CPR if you are trained to do so
 +  - **STAY:** with patient until help arrives
 +**Do not attempt to remove foreign objects from the eye or body.**
 +**If chemicals get in the eye(s), wash eye(s) for 15 minutes in an open flow of water before proceeding for medical treatment.**
 +===== Report all injuries. =====
 +Any incident where the safety of any person is compromised - either when an injury has occurred, or there was a significant risk of injury - should be recorded on an Incident Report Form and referred to the committee.

 +  * Think through the entire job before starting. Prepare prints or drawings with all dimensions and specifications prior to using machines.

 +  * Keep the floor around machines clean, dry, and free from trip hazards. Do not allow chips to accumulate.
