Now that summer is here (or, according to the summer solstice, almost here), don’t let your summer break lull you into a break from safety practices. Doing what you can to prevent accidents or immediate and long-term health issues can help you have the most fun and least stressful summer ever!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has great information on a variety of summer safety topics (including the list below). And, if you have children or prefer messages with a side of fun, try some of the videos below. They use entertaining approaches to sharing safety information and inspiring safe and fun summer actions.
Have you seen fun and/or creative summer safety videos? Please share!
