How can I get up from the floor?

Have you ever had a fall or tripped and found yourself on the floor?

It is important that when getting back up from the floor that you do so slowly and carefully. It is also good to let someone know that you have fallen, so that any underlying reason for your fall or trip can be looked into. Of course, if you have been injured after falling, make sure to call 000 or your GP for assistance.

See the pictures in the “How can I get up off the floor” pictorials for a safe and hopefully easy way to get back up. They detail two different ways, one using your arms, the other using your knees.
