Steps to take to prevent a hockey accident


There are important steps to take to prevent a hockey accident

This ancient game is pretty well regulated these days. If you follow the rules you should have a great game without any injuries. The steps to take to prevent a hockey accident are not difficult to understand and we outline them in this article.


Protect yourself

If you play ice hockey then you’ll know it’s the fastest game on ice. This means you risk the chance of some high impact collisions with other players. You can protect yourself from falls on the ice and impact injuries by wearing protective clothing. This includes, gloves, face and mouth guards and helmets as well as leg protection.

Field hockey can be nearly as fast and furious so think about protecting the parts of your body that are vulnerable. Shoes with cleats, face and mouth guards and some shin guards should do the trick.


Who’s to blame when someone is injured?

This can be difficult to establish in some circumstances. If another player is acting irresponsibly it may not have come to the attention of the coach. The best advice in this situation is to address this matter yourself before you get hurt.

The emphasis must be on safety and players should not play the ball dangerously in a way that might harm others.

If you’ve been hurt in an accident that was no fault of your own then you need to speak to the experts at Accident Advice Helpline.
