Some Tips On Water Sport Safety

There are a few crucial things to consider when being around the water, let's explore them.Learn to swimSwimming is such a natural action for humans that many babies are born with the ability to swim! If you don't already know how, take lessons! This should be common sense for any one that lives near the water, but I think everyone should know how to swim.Never swim or dive anywhere except clearly marked areas with a lifeguard.When a boat slides out into the lake on a sweltering summer day, a strong swimmer wearing easily dried clothes is heartily tempted to jump right in! However, some lakes can be extremely deceiving, seeming bottomless, when in fact they are only 12 feet deep in the middle. Be extremely careful when diving or jumping into water. Although the bottom may not be visible, it also may not be very far away from the bottom of the boat. The best way to stay safe when swimming or diving is to go with a friend, using the buddy system, and swim or dive only in marked areas. Always wear a lifejacket w...

 


Wearing A Safety Belt Isn't Just For Your Safety

How To Prevent Injuries In The Bathtub

No one wants to find himself naked and injured, yet many of us neglect the one place in our home that could lead to such an embarrassing circumstance: the bathroom. I never even considered the importance of bath safety until I experienced it with my dad's fall. At the young age of 65 he began to notice the ever increasing effects of age: slower reflexes, weaker muscles, and more brittle bones and unfortunately, because he did not plan to protect himself, he fell and injured himself in the bath. Thankfully he is recovering nicely. But I want others to understand the importance of injury-proofing their baths. A number of products that will protect anyone from the age of 10 to 90 exist. One major item would have saved my dad from my injury: safety decals. These sticky decals stick to the bottom of a tub and create the necessary friction for standing in the shower or just getting up from a long soak in the tub. They come in a variety of colors and shapes. Those with kids will enjoy picking out some of the fun she...
