What to do if you get hurt

To yourself:

  • Remain calm
  • Seek help from someone nearby or call 9-1-1

To someone else:

  • Remain calm
  • Neutralize any hazards present
  • Do check that the injured is breathing and has a pulse; begin CPR if necessary and trained to do so
  • Do not move the injured if there is a likelihood of head, neck, or spine injury
  • For urgent or life-threatening injuries, dial 9-1-1

After medical treatment, report the incident to the faculty or staff person responsible for the course or laboratory as soon as possible
