Have You Got Your Festive First Aid Kit?
Whilst maybe not at the top of your list a festive first aid kit being on hand could be a lot more important than you think. We are nearly at this great time of year…Christmas, the festive season that many of us so look forward to. But with the happiness, this time of years brings us all there are also risks for us all and our children too.
We noticed an interesting stat in the Uk from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) who predict that over 80,000 people in the UK will require medical help from their local A&E department over Christmas.
Indeed here in Ireland, the HSE have a dedicated page for “Child Safety at Christmas”….and we suggest our readers take a look at it here…https://www.hse.ie/eng/health/child/childsafety/christmas-safety.html
Why a Festive First Aid Kit is Desirable?
Having a first aid kit on hand means that minor injuries can be dealt with immediately. There are numerous risks of injuries at Christmas time.
Accidents from putting up trees and decorations.
The kitchen which is a busy place-often crowded with people and pots and pans-utensils-knives-burn and scald and cut risks.
Maybe having that one drink too many and slipping and falling indoors or outdoors.
Perhaps icy pathways and roads outside your house?
Maybe cuts from toys?
Being a really social time of year what about risks of injury to the visitors to your home be they, family or friends, for many of the reasons outlined above?
