what precautions we should have to take while handling the equipments containing mercury?

Equipments containing mercury should be kept away from any heat source. 
The equipment should be handled with care since mercury spills and spreads quickly in case the equipment is broken. It is difficult to clean mercury spills.
Gold and silver ornaments should not be worn while handling mercury spillage since it amalgamates with gold and silver and cause irreversible damage to the ornament.

Mercury is present in thermometers. We should handle them with care as they are toxic in nature.

We should keep them away from small children and keep the safe in a medical box or something.

Now-a-days , digital thermometers are available.....which do not contain ths substance.
