    What injuries are more common in the summer?


    When the sun comes out, we all partake in activities that we wouldn’t during the colder months of the year. It is no surprise that the number of slips, trips and falls increase, as children and adults run around in gardens and public areas.

    As well as trips and slips, there are other common summer accidents, which we should be aware of, so we can prepare to prevent them.

    Common summer accidents

    ­­As well as injuries caused by trips and falls this summer, be mindful of these other accident-prone seasonal activities.

    • Barbecues
      Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Barbecues are notorious for burn injuries, however, remember to drink responsibly to avoid alcohol-related accidents. Ensure all meat is fully cooked before consumption to prevent food poisoning.
    • Swimming
      Slips and falls along the poolside are common and can cause myriad injuries from sprains to fractures. All children should be supervised while using pool areas, to minimise the risk of swimming pool accidents, and wear suitable supports, such as armbands or rubber rings.  Never swim after drinking alcohol. Adhere to pool rules avoid pool accidents and fatalities.
    • Sunburn and sunstroke
      When the sun comes out, we’re often keen to top up our tans. It is important to apply sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Sunburn is a painful ailment in itself, however it can lead to other summer-related diseases, such as skin cancer.
    • Sports
      Golf, cricket, tennis, sailing, hiking, cycling… the sun has a way of encouraging us to partake in sports that we wouldn’t typically participate in.  Pushing your body to new limits can lead to sport-related strains and sprains, while inexperience in activities such as sailing and cycling can lead to falls or accidents in the water. Always follow safety guidelines and know your physical limitations.
