January - National Bath Safety Month

Updated on January 3, 2013

The New Year has come and gone. 2012 is over and 2013 is finally here. With it comes different Holidays that no one really celebrates. However, I wanted to mention that January is National Bath Safety Month. What is National Bath Safety Month? Read on to find out more about this special month long Holiday.

About National Bath Safety Month

Bath tubs are slippery and anyone can fall when getting in or out of the bathtub or shower. This is why we have National Bath Safety Month to spread awareness so everyone will know the safety tips when getting in and out of the bathtub or shower. Bathrooms can be dangerous without getting in and out of the shower. They can be dangerous for children as well.

Safety Tips

  • · Make sure your bathroom door is closed all the time if you have children. This is important because your child can become curious and wander into the bathroom. They can slip and fall if the floor is wet.
  • · Keep lid locks on your toilet at all time so your children won’t play in the toilet.
  • · Do not leave your children alone around water. This means being with them when they are taking a bath.
  • · Ensure you have a mat inside your bathtub to prevent slips and falls.
  • · Make sure you have everything you need for your child’s bath. Also have these items within reach so you won’t have to leave your child alone in the bathtub even for a second.
  • · After running your child’s bath water, check the water temperature before putting your child in to ensure it is not too hot and not too cold. Luke warm bath water should do it for a child.
  • · The same goes for elderly people. If you have an elderly loved one in the home, check the water temperature for them as well because some elderly people have sensitive skin. This can avoid scalding..
  • · If you need to answer the phone or the door while your child is in the bathtub, take them with you by wrapping them up in a warm towel. Just do not leave them alone even for a second because they could easily drown in a split second.
  • · Make sure you keep one hand firmly around your child when bathing them to avoid falls and drowning.
  • · Install grab bars for elderly people so they can easily hold on to something while bathing.

Always keep these safety tips in mind all year round, not just in January.
