    safety measures

    In this "bunjee jumping site", this "measures" is translated as "equipment", but isn't it "action"?

    go1-9
    W: You did a very good job of climbing up to this.
    M : Oh, I feel dizzy. Itís too high. Iíd rather give up.
    W : Donít look down directly. Take a look at the mountain. Itíll make you comfortable.
    M : What if I bump into the ground?
    W : Donít worry about it. These ropes will prevent you from hitting the ground.
    M : But Iím still afraid to jump.
    W : I checked all the safety measures. Trust me. There have been no accidents yet.
    M : Okay. Now what can I do?
    W : Take a deep breath and then jump

    Either or, more probably, both.

    Re: safety measures

    There are a lot of things included in safety measures usually. The safety measures for bungee jumping include weighing the person who will jump in order to work out the length of elastic rope which is required, checking the harness and all the connections between the person, the harness and the rope, asking the jumper to sign a document confirming that they don't have any medical conditions which would preclude them from jumping, asking them to sign a waiver in case of accidents, ensuring the jumper is not wearing spectacles and that they don't have anything in their pockets which will fall out when upside down, checking that the member of staff at the bottom is ready for the next jumper ...

    There are a lot of safety checks involved in bungee jumping, and for that I am very grateful. I was particularly grateful for them on the day I jumped off the Kawarau Bridge in New Zealand!
