People with epilepsy do not always know when a seizure may happen, which can make them particularly vulnerable in some situations.

It is helpful when people around you know how to help if a seizure occurs.

If someone has a seizure, check for medical ID, care plan or emergency contact details on them. If safe to do so, check to see if they have this information. If they do not have anything obvious, or it is not safe to look, the following is a useful guide to help you support them or download a Seizure First Aid Poster here.


Take a look at our Seizure and Injury section to help you do your own hazard assessment.
