When you’re on vacation, the last thing you think of is the safety precautions that you should take while enjoying your time off. Oddly enough, once vacation season comes around many hotels, golf courses, country clubs, resorts and more also don’t think of how to keep their guests safe while they enjoy their stay.
Vacation Resort Accidents result in 70,000 deaths and 147 million documented injuries every year in the United States. According to the National Safety Council, deaths from accidents are more prominent than natural illnesses. Statistics can tell you that more than 2 million children die in accidents while they are on vacation. Why mostly children? That’s because parents become unaware and remain undistracted
especially if they are enjoying their vacation.
Accidents do happen to children and adults as well, causing as many as 10,500 fatalities and more than 600,000 injuries each holiday year in the United States.
With these kinds of statistics, it is very important that you always prepare yourself as well as your family for situations that may arise while on vacation.
- While traveling in a vehicle, always wear a seatbelt. Be sure to always have younger children in appropriately placed child safety seats as well. Though it should be a natural habit at this point, many still forget to do this simple task.
- While at resort pools, please keep an eye out for your loved ones that are playing in the pools. Many times, there are no life guards on duty so you must always take extra precaution in making sure your loved ones are enjoying the water safely.
- Be prepared: The key to having a safe and enjoyable vacation is to always prepare yourselves as well as your loved ones for a situation that may arise. Have a plan in case an unfortunate accident does occur.
These simple yet effective tips will not only help keep you safe while on vacation, but they will also give you a little more piece of mind knowing that you are prepared for situations that may come up during your outing.
