scarves, or hanging jewelry when working in rotating machinery. Use
protective blue coats only in the workshops, to avoid spreading
around all the dust in other premises.
4. Under the influence of alcohol or drugs may you under no
circumstances be in the workshops. Also remember that being tired,
stressed or otherwise out of balance affects judgment and reaction,
it is then not suitable to work in rotating machinery.

in the workshops. Lift the handset and dial the emergency number
112 to get in contact with ambulance, police or fire brigade. State
who you are, where you are calling from and what has happened.

a machine cannot be started, first check that the main switch is
turned on in the wood workshop, respectively the metal workshop and
secondly that the wall emergency stops are reset.

of the workshops: make sure you are prepared in advance and know
where different evacuation routes are located. Check the evacuation
plans that are posted around the building, and take note of where
the assembly point is located. If you see that evacuation routes
are blocked or barred, please notify UID staff immediately.

extinguishers, fire blankets, emergency showers and water hoses.
Locate and check where they are before something happens. If
