Springtime Safety Tips

As winter ends and spring begins, there are some spring safety tips that you will want to keep in mind.  This is especially true when all of the fun outdoor activities begin.  While these are great to partake in after a long time being cooped up indoors, your health and safety should be your main concern.  With this in mind, here are some spring safety tips that you will want to keep in mind.

Spring Safety Tip #1: Wear Sunscreen

Make sure that you are wearing sunscreen whenever you are outside.  This sun safety tip is important to keep in mind, even when the sky is overcast because the sun’s UV rays can still give you a painful sunburn.  Sunscreen should also be reapplied frequently.  Another thing that you need to keep in mind is that SPF will measure how much protection your skin will have.  For instance, if you have an SPF of 20, then your skin will be protected 20 times longer than normal from being burnt.

Spring Safety Tip #2: Don’t Run Around Pools

This is a safety tip for kids mostly: Don’t run around the pool.  Most adults already understand this spring safety tip but most children seem to forget that they can easily slip and fall on slick pavement.

Spring Safety Tip #3: Carry A First Aid Kit

Whenever you go camping or on a long trip you should make sure to carry a first-aid kit with you.  With this health and safety tip comes a choice: purchase one or make one of your own.  Regardless of how you go about it, make sure to take bandages, germ killers, cold compresses and painkillers with you. 

Spring Safety Tip #4: Supervise Your Children

While a lot of these spring safety tips are personal safety tips, this one is for your children: Keep an eye on them whenever you are outdoors.  This spring safety tip can actually make the difference between you having a fun time and you ending up in the emergency room.

Spring Safety Tip #5: Use Insect Repellent

Insect repellant is also a good thing to use, especially now that a lot of these insects are carrying dangerous diseases with them.  Fortunately, there are a lot of really effective repellants on the market today, even some organic ones.  So, nobody should have any problem with this outdoor safety tip.

Spring Safety Tip #6: Follow The Rules When Playing Sports

The final spring safety tip is for those of you who play sports: Make sure to follow the rules and use any safety equipment possible.
