Saskatchewan summers are often filled with fun outdoor activities, such as playing at the playground, cycling, swimming at outdoor pools, going to the lake, and camping. It is important for parents and caregivers to understand how to keep children safe during these activities. This 40 minute pre-recorded presentation shares information about children’s development and what it means for their safety, especially during the summer. Statistics* about common summer-related injuries are included, as well as prevention tips.
*The statistics shared in this presentation come from The Child and Youth Injury in Saskatchewan 2004-2013 report (Resource #4-007).
The Child Injury Prevention Programming and Action Guide (Resource #4-008) was developed for community-based programs to use in their work with families to help prevent child injury.
