A long hot summer is what we all hope for, whether it’s in the garden having a BBQ with family and friends, a weekend away under canvas, putting your caravan back on the road or spending time exploring our wonderful coastline both on and in the water.
To stay safe this summer and make the most of the weather follow our top safety tips for the great outdoors so you can ensure that your adventures are safe and enjoyable ones.
If you’ve planned a BBQ and the weather lets you down, don’t take the BBQ indoors or into a tent. In recent years, some people have sadly succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning as a result. Enjoy yourself safely.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is difficult to detect because it is colourless and has no taste or smell. People often don’t realise that they are being overcome by fumes until it is too late.
