Summertime Safety from Regarding Health - A Publication of Little Company of Mary Hospital

BIKING: Each year, about 26,000 children worldwide are seen in emergency departments for traumatic brain injuries related to bicycle riding.

  • Don’t rush your child off training wheels before age 5.
  • Choose a bike that fits properly, allowing your young cyclist to place the balls of both feet on the ground while sitting on the seat.
  • Insist that your child wear a helmet for every ride. Choose one that meets the safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (check the inside label for the stamp of approval).

SWIMMING: Unintentional drowning is a real and very serious risk. More than 20 percent of drowning victims are children ages 14 and younger.

  • Never let kids near pools or other bodies of water unattended.
  • Designate at least one adult who knows how to swim and can oversee kids without distraction.
  • For infants and toddlers, this grown-up should stay at arm’s length, providing “touch supervision.”
  • Keep safety equipment, such as life preservers, on hand.
  • Swimming lessons may lower the risk of drowning. The U. S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends signing kids up when they’re ready, which can be as early as age 1.

AT THE PLAYGROUND: Even backyard swing sets pose safety risks. After hours in the sun, metal, plastic and rubber equipment can scald your child’s skin, while wooden materials supply splinters. Ropes and nets may trap small hands, and falling from a swing, slide or other structure onto a hard surface like concrete or asphalt can cause injuries.

  • Start by installing equipment properly and safely. It should be on a level surface and anchored firmly to the ground.
  • Place energy-absorbent materials, such as safetytested mats or wood chips, underneath. Make sure to cover at least six feet in all directions (even farther for swings and slides).
  • Before playtime, check the temperature of all equipment. Frequently inspect equipment for loose bolts, rusted chains, and jagged edges that could catch a child’s clothing.
