From museums, theme parks and water parks, swimming pools, soft play and indoor play centres to petting farms, zoos, wildlife parks, horse riding, aquariums and castles; from steam railways, ceramic cafés, pottery making, ice and roller skating rinks, climbing walls, karting tracks and snow domes to indoor and dry ski slopes, ten pin bowling alleys, activity centres and beautiful local parks with outdoor play facilities, West Yorkshire has it all. With so much to see and do, it is of little wonder that accidents in West Yorkshire do happen from time to time.
Preventing incidents in West Yorkshire
The wide variety of available attractions makes it virtually impossible to provide readers with detailed advice on how to prevent personal injuries in West Yorkshire. The basic precautions applicable for any location therefore, spring to mind. Such precautions including:
- Driving carefully to avoid accidents on the road
- Following instructions and safety advice at attractions
- Watching your step to prevent slips, trips and falls
The latter obviously applies to walking on roads and pavements as much as it does when visiting attractions, restaurants and pubs or bars, for example.
- Roads and pavements
Not all roads and pavements in West Yorkshire are perfect, and you may encounter potholes; loose or broken kerbs and other trip hazards. Preventing injuries by tripping by keeping an eye on the surface you are walking on is subsequently essential.
- Attractions and other public establishments
Restaurants, pubs and bars; museums and other attractions are frequented by thousands of visitors. Peak periods in particular make it extremely difficult for owners to keep up with their duty to protect customers by preventing injuries by slipping, tripping or falling. This makes it necessary for you to look out for potential slip or trip hazards and report them immediately to relevant staff members.
