Avoiding common accidents
Although most people will do everything they can to protect themselves from dangerous situations, it is possible to be injured just by going about your day to day life.
Accidents and injuries can happen at any time and in any place if you are not being careful and doing what you can to prevent them.
Here are some tips on protecting yourself from being injured day to day.
- Know the risks. Always take in the risks of any activity you are doing before you go ahead with it. Obviously some tasks are more risky than others, but there is risk involved in almost any activity you may undertake. You know not to use electrical devices near water, but should also think about how you hold or use that product so that you won’t be injured. If you are used to assessing risk then you will be able to do this in a fraction of a second.
- Keep your home safe. This means checking for faulty wiring, replacing smoke alarms and carbon monoxide tests and keeping electricals out of the kitchen and bathroom. You should also be thinking about clutter and loose rugs in the home that could cause a tripping hazard, and making sure that all windows and doors are locked to put off intruders.
- Support yourself at work. Work injuries are just as likely to come from bad posture and repetitive strain injury as anything else, so put down a support system before you even begin. Make sure that you have a good, supportive computer chair, and that you use wrist rests and take lots of breaks when typing.
- Be careful whatever the weather. Be aware what hazards weather conditions pose. Slippery pavement when it is cold, wet or snowing, and damage to the skin or from heat exhaustion in the summer.
