Before you host your family and friends for that summer BBQ picnic you have been planning, follow these 5 essential backyard summer safety tips to keep your guests safe.
Don’t walk away from the grill while cooking. It doesn’t take a long for a grill fire to become out of control. And little hands don’t always know that the grill is hot. Enlist the services of a grill “gopher”—someone who can “go-for” this and “go-for” that so you are free to continually stand guard at the grill.
A dip in the pool is the perfect way to cool off on a hot day. Make sure your pool is constantly supervised in case anyone should need assistance in the water whether it be a small child or an adult. And for everyday safety make sure your pool fence is in good repair with a locked gate. Keep the pool chemicals out of reach of children and animals.
Take a look at your porch, deck, or outside steps and add any signs or safety paint to areas that could be a tripping hazard. Don’t forget large cracks in your sidewalk or driveway in addition to stumps in the ground.
Make sure outside lights are working and the light bulbs are not burnt out. Well-lit outside areas make it easier to see where you are stepping.
Cover your window wells to prevent animals, children, or adults from inadvertently falling into your window wells. Window Bubbles supply the best fit and the stronger protection than any other window well cover on the market. Plus, they are custom made. Start your Window Bubble order with these measuring instructions.
Make good use of these long days of summer!
