IS THERE A 'MOST DANGEROUS' MONTH OF THE YEAR?
THERE IS, AND IT HAPPENS
TO BE THIS MONTH!
You probably don't think of a particular month as being more or less dangerous than any of the others. But, according to the National Safety Council, deaths and serious injuries from preventable incidents are eleven percent higher in July, making the first full month of summer the most dangerous of the year.
Based on a series of Council analyses, increases in car accidents, water accidents and extreme temperatures are the primary reasons. The NSC is working to increase awareness and provides the following tips to stay safe this July:
- Avoid speeding, don't use cell phones while driving, and never drive under the influence. Crashes involving speeding and alcohol are highest in the summer, and cell phone use increases crash risk fourfold, even when using a hands-free device.
- Place children in age-appropriate car seats. If you are flying, buy a ticket for children ages 2 and younger and place them in an FAA-approved child seat. Do not hold young children on your lap during a flight.
- Learn about your vehicle's safety systems and how to use them. MyCarDoesWhat? is an online automobile safety guide from the National Safety Council that can help drivers understand safety features such as adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning systems and backup cameras.
- Do not operate a boat while drinking or without a boater's license
- Make sure children use floatation devices and everyone in your group knows how to swim.
- Stay hydrated and avoid being outside for long periods of time in the extreme heat.
- Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle. In 2013, 44 children died from heatstroke because they were left in hot cars.
It's not just safety first,
it's safety ALWAYS!
