TVOC Incident Guidelines

TVOC Guidelines for dealing with an incident/accident

Stay calm but act swiftly and observe the situation. Is there danger of further injuries?

  • Listen to what the injured person is saying.
  • Alert the first aider who should take appropriate action for minor injuries.
  • In the event of an injury requiring specialist treatment, call the emergency services.
  • Deal with the rest of the group and ensure that they are adequately supervised.
  • Do not move someone with major injuries. Wait for the emergency medics.
  • Contact the injured person's parent/carer.
  • Complete an incident/accident report form and send this immediately to British Orienteering. There is a British Orienteering incident/accident report form which is available to be downloaded from the British Orienteering website.
