10 Tips For Staying Safe This Summer

Posted by Junk King on Aug 21, 2018 3:06:00 PM
Summer is a season for getting outside and enjoying the outdoors. It’s a time for fun activities and family outings. But it can also be a time of unexpected injuries, unfortunate encounters with the elements, and spoiled adventures.

Playing it safe for the summer is the key to enjoying the season to the fullest. And that means knowing in advance what to do, what to watch for, and what to avoid. While you can’t prevent every accident, illness, unpleasant event, or every insect bite, you can certainly take steps to minimize them.

Summer hazards run the gamut from heat stroke and sunburn to dehydration and poison oak. Add to the mix water hazards, bees, horse flies and mosquitoes, and bad potato salad at the family picnic, and you have the potential for some inconvenient unpleasantness.

The Threats of Summer

Broadly speaking, there are essentially three major areas of concern when it comes to summer safety:• Mother Nature• Personal Safety• Situational Awareness

Mother nature presents a number of potential threats ranging from sunburns and heat stroke, to dehydration, to poisonous plants, animals and insects. With the rise of diseases such as the Zika virus and Lyme disease, that last one has become a real concern.

As for personal safety, this can mean everything from wearing proper equipment when engaging in summer activities, to making sure someone else knows where you are or where you’re going at all times. For children and older adults this can be a matter of great concern.

Situational awareness is a somewhat vague term perhaps, but it relates to driving defensively, navigating crowds safely, always being aware of where your children are (or where you yourself are!) and the passing of time. Too often, in the joy of summer fun, we can lose track of when we last drank water or how long we’ve been in the sun, for example.

Here is a handy chart that outlines some major summer safety tips to help you enjoy your summer season without fear:
