AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN

AdvantagesAll in opinion

DisadvantagesAll in opinion

"...cause serious implications to our health & safety if we do not follow simple safety regulations. Its important in making safety a recognized part of everyday life – even more so in our homes seeing that it is in our homes where 50% of accidental injuries occur & 35% of accidental deaths occur – staggering statistics that makes you wonder where we are going wrong. Picture this...... ¤¤ - Home A - ¤¤ ================== • - Overloaded wall ..." Read review

DRUGS - a travellers guide to OTC medicines

AdvantagesOTC medications can relieve pain and discomfort

DisadvantagesOTC medicines, like any other drug, can injure or kill in excess. Ensure you know what you are taking.

"...your Doctor, Pharmacist or other health professional. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ INTRODUCTION ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, a short introduction is in order. Some OTC medicines available in the US are either not available in the UK, or have a different name. Needless to say, the same holds true in reverse. Therefore, ever the considerate ex-pat, I thought I would write a little guide ..." Read review

Twelve tips to Home Safety

AdvantagesYou can plan home safety

DisadvantagesYou can never be entirely safe

"SET PARAMETERS - Condition your children and animals into accepting certain actions or behaviour as normal, such as staying out of the kitchen while you are cooking dinner for example. Plan escape routes for fire, and teach the children what to do in the event of a fire. FENCE OFF - the areas you KNOW are dangerous. I used to have an extended stair gate guard, which I used not only for the stairs, but to keep the children and dogs out of the kitchen ..." Read review

No more pointless deaths, please

AdvantagesKeeping your children alive

DisadvantagesNot keeping your children alive

"Right, apologies before I even start this opinion if I offend anyone in any way, it was just impossible to write this one without personal feelings creeping in now and again, you'll understand why at the end. Also apologies for cheating somewhat as this opinion is about car safety as opposed to home safety, but as cars are just an extention of your home then I can just get away with it, can't I? If anyone knows of a better category for this then ..." Read review

Its a bugs life, or is it yours...

AdvantagesA more thorough hygiene routine could save your life.

DisadvantagesNone

"Hygiene in the kitchen has become a massive issue for me. You can never be too careful when it comes to good food hygiene. The reason it has become a big issue to me is nothing to do with me suffering from food poisoning, as I never have and hope not to but because of my last job. The last job I had was working for Boots Contract Manufacturing. Yes the massive site that manufactures all toiletries for Europe and manufactures drugs for many of ..." Read review

If you love them keep them safe

AdvantagesYour child will be safe

DisadvantagesYou child may come to harm

"I know I’m setting myself up to be shot down in flames here, talking about child safety when I have no children, but I do have a goddaughter, Rosie, who is just 7 years old and her safety in all things is paramount to me. I appreciate that it easy for me to pontificate on the theory when I don’t have the problem of putting it all into practice. So, I sat and thought about all the things from which I would want to help protect her, and ..." Read review

UPDATED - Keeping Your Child Safe

Advantageschildren need to develop independence - but safely

Disadvantagesworrying, stressful times for parents

"During the first few years of parenthood, keeping your child safe means watching for household hazards - ensuring hot cups of tea are out of your child's reach, that they can't find little things to swallow and that any medicines are stored safely out of the reach of a climbing toddler. Those things are difficult enough. I remember my eldest daughter falling off the bed as a baby, and my youngest cutting her leg open on the sharp side of a tea-chest. ..." Read review

123..BUMPS A DAISY

Advantagessee opinion

Disadvantagessee opinion

"Doesn't matter how old your children are, they could be in real danger. No home is completely 100% safe, how could it be? We take our home for granted as being the safest place our child could be. So how come most accidents that happen to our children within the home or garden? I have experienced two minor accidents with my first daughter. The first one was when she was 5 mths old. She decided to start rolling, just when I had left her for a second ..." Read review

Watch your speed and look out for the kids

AdvantagesSave a life, and your insurance

DisadvantagesDark nights and dark mornings.

"...page. It is about health and safty, but with a slight difference. Never underestimate your child. No matter how sensible they are, or appear to be. This is a lesson that I myself have learned, as a result of a very frightening experience. Let me relate it to you. My eldest is usually very sensible. Although he is only eleven he is capable of quite a lot. He is a very intelligent child, (and I’m not being biased, this is based on school ..." Read review

Nuts in Food

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesChildren Die

"Question: which of the following products contain nuts? Jelly Babies, Ice Cream, Pasta, chocolate bars, loaf of bread, fish fingers, biscuits, tikka chicken masala, pizza, honey nut loops. It isn’t meant to be a trick question, but the only one, which doesn’t, is Honey Nut Loops. All of the others stand a good chance of containing within their ingredients a little label that says “may contain traces of nuts”. What this ..." Read review

" I am studying Health and Hygiene safety at school in the food preparation area. My Food Technology teacher is very nice and speaks alot about food safety, and also the laws of hygiene etc. I have learned alot this year studying about food. I am going to explain about food poisoning, and how many people it has affected etc, (I hope it doesn't affect your appetites!!) Food poisoning claims 9.5 million victims a year, a secret government report ..." Read review

It's a silent KILLER

AdvantagesSpend a few pounds to safeguard your life

DisadvantagesCarbon monoxide can and will KILL!

"Carbon Monoxide is nicknamed the silent killer because it is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, yet highly toxic gas that can be lethal! Produced as a result of ANY fuel burning appliance, carbon monoxide becomes dangerous when the concentration in the air becomes too high. Adequate ventilation disperses carbon monoxide but if for example you have a gas fire in use and the chimney flue becomes blocked the gas will seep into the air without you ..." Read review

A WARNING..DON'T BE STUPID LIKE I WAS

AdvantagesYou can make some good friends, even find love, have fun.

DisadvantagesPeople can lie, you could get into dangerous situations.

"When we first got the internet at home I was 16. I was bored a lot of the time and liked to take risks so I met several men/boys who I had met through chatting on the internet. A few of these men were nice people and I am still in contact with one of them. Several though, were creeps. When I look back now from a more mature perspective, I think: "why would a man in his mid twenties want to meet a 16 year old girl"? Well, most of you can guess ..." Read review
