1 Describe different types of
accidents and sudden
illness that may occur in
own work setting
An accident could be described as an unintentional incident which could possibly have an adverse effect on a persons well being, initiated from outside the human body, whereby there may be some initial warning. [ Some of these incidences can include a slip, trip, fall, burn or cut. A sudden illness can be described as an incident that occurs without warning, from within the human body, for
example, a stroke or heart attack.
If an accident or sudden illness occurs then policies and procedures to follow include making the situation safe if possible, treating my casuality if possible, as I'm a first aider, reporting any accidents etc that occur in the health and safety at work/accident book and reporting these to my supervisor or manager. In general I would follow all organisational and legal policies in place. ............ ]
