Summer time means the kids are out of school and at camp, adults are on vacation, and the main objective is fun in the sun! Endless barbecues, bike rides, pool parties, out door activities like camping in the wilderness – you name it! It’s a fact that there are more emergency room visits in the summertime than any other season. You wouldn’t want an accident that could have been easily prevented from ruining your entire summer plans, do you? This article will explore some tips on keeping the kiddies safe and sound during every body’s favorite season.

When I was growing up, we never wore helmets, but supposedly they prevent about 85% of head injuries from occurring. Prevent a swimming pool tragedy by using a protective kid proof barrier around the pool, always keeping an eye on your little ones, use pool and door alarms, and teach your kids to swim at an early age. Allow only one person at a time on the trampoline, use a barrier, remove socks, don’t allow kids under 6 years old to use it, and don’t allow somersaults.

When grilling, never bring a charcoal grill indoors 안전놀이터 because it releases dangerous carbon monoxide fumes. If you have a gas grill, check the air tubes that lead into the burner for any blockage from insects, spiders, and food grease. Check hoses for cracking, brittleness, leaks, and holes. Make sure your home playground is safe by avoiding concrete or asphalt surfaces and use something like mulch, instead. Falls from swing sets cause 60% of playground injuries so having a soft, safe surface is important.

Use softer kid friendly baseballs and soccer balls. On that note, make sure soccer goal posts are secured on the ground so they don’t fall over and kill any young ones. Don’t let them hang or climb on the framework and remove nets when goals are not in use. When doing yard work, be sure to keep all tools in a secure place so kids will not think they can use them in their sandboxes. When mowing the lawn, always mow hills in an up and down direction – never across because you never know when little Johnny is going to fly by in his tricycle. These are just some of the things you can do to ensure a safe and enjoyable summer for all.
