    1.1 Describe how to conduct a scene survey

     

      You need to stay safe in order to help   When arriving at the scene of an accident involving a child or baby, it is important to ensure the safety of yourself first! You cannot help anyone if you become a casualty. Once its safe for you, then you can consider the safety of the casualty and bystanders.      Control the Situation   Try not to panic and observe the situation for a few seconds. Look for dangers, risks and hazards   Examples include the risk of moving traffic, electricity, or fast-moving water.     Gather information   Gather information from the casualty and/or bystanders at the scene. Use the principles of History, Signs and Symptoms to identify what’s happened

     

     

    • History – asking the casualty or witnesses for information about the incident
    • Signs – visual and other senses. What injuries can you see? What objects are nearby that may indicate something has happened
    • Symptoms – what are the casualty’s symptoms?

     

    Protect and Prioritise   Protect yourself and the casualty by minimising the risk of infection. Wear gloves and use sterile equipment from a first aid kit, if possible. Ensure casualties are prioritised using the principles of the 3 B’s – Breathing, Bleeding, Broken Bones

     

     

      IMPORTANT – IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION. FOLLOW THE STEPS ABOVE AND TRY TO REMAIN AS CALM AS POSSIBLE. YOU WILL BE FAR MORE EFFECTIVE THIS WAY 

     

      Consent:   When offering any assistance to a casualty who is conscious, it is important to seek their permission for you to provide first aid management. If the casualty is unconscious, too young or in a life-threatening situation, you should act immediately and presume that they would prefer you to offer any assistance.   When offering first aid management for people under the age of 18, consent should also be sought from their parent or guardian, when available.   Call 999 / 112 if you’re worried about anyone who is not willing to cooperate
