    Staying safe in Brighton


    Brighton is a popular south coast destination for British holidaymakers. Whether you visit this sea-side town for just a weekend or spend a couple of weeks there, it helps to be aware of some of the risks you may encounter.

    Restaurants

    While Brighton is without doubt home to a plethora of excellent restaurants, there are some who will take food and hygiene standards less than seriously. As a result, holiday makers occasionally contract food poisoning, as well as suffering injuries by trips or slips on clutter or spills.

    Brighton restaurant ratings

    Taking note of the ratings provided by Brighton and Hove Council could help prevent consuming contaminated food in Brighton. In essence, five stars means the establishment in question has an excellent standard of cleanliness, while no stars basically warn you to keep well clear, as hygiene leaves a lot to be desired.

    Brighton Pier

    The wooden planks used on Brighton Pier present visitors with the risk of sustaining injuries by slips, trips and falls. The risk is further increased when the weather is poor, as the planks can quickly become extremely slippery. It is therefore, necessary to watch your step and look out for wet areas if you do not wish to sustain injuries by slipping. Prevent injuries by falling, stay clear of the edges of the boardwalk and refrain from leaning over barriers designed to prevent falls from height.

    Sewage in the sea

    Unless you are prepared to take the risk of contracting bacterial or viral diseases, it may also be a good idea to refrain from swimming in the sea. This is because in spite of environmental controls, vast amounts of raw sewage, equalling approximately the volume of 80 full size swimming pools, appears to be pumped into the sea by local water companies on a daily basis.

    Boy racers

    On Saturday nights, the main street next to Brighton’s promenade apparently becomes a ‘playground’ for boy racers and their souped-up vehicles. Showing little consideration for the belongings or lives of others, these boy racers are unlikely to stop if they hit something or someone. Keeping well out of the way of these kids is highly recommended if you prefer to avoid being hit by a car.
