Did you know that more accidents occur during the warm weather months than any other time of year? As people head outdoors and enjoy what summer has to offer, they’re not always the most careful. Here are potential dangers right around the corner. * Sunburn: Failure to apply -- and reapply -- sunblock can result in a nasty burn. Not only can it be painful, it could lead to dangerous skin cancer. * Dehydration: Couple hot weather with outdoor exertion and a person can quickly get thirsty. Failure to replenish liquid lost through sweating and activity can result in dehydration. Fainting, feeling nauseous and headaches can occur. * Food poisoning: Hot weather and improperly stored food can result in food poisoning. If you’ll be eating outdoors, cold foods must remain cold and hot foods should be kept warm to prevent spoilage. Don’t eat any food that has been sitting outside for more than an hour. Food poisoning symptoms often come on suddenly and can include vomiting and diarrhea. * Insects: Bugs love warm weather, too. Mosquitos, bees, wasps, spiders, and all of the other winged and multi-legged creatures come out from their roosts when the temperature climbs. It’s more common for people to come in contact with potentially poisonous or bothersome insects. * Water: Drownings in pools, lakes and rivers definitely increase as the weather gets warmer. Always practice the utmost care in and
around water. Safety vests are essential. * Vehicles: Longer amounts of sunshine tend to keep people outdoors longer. This can mean running errands or cruising around with the top down. With more cars on the road, vehicular accidents can increase, primarily when alcohol is involved. Enjoy your summer by staying safe and avoiding common dangers. be taken when rafting or kayaking during the hot summer months.
