Sun, Sea and Sand safety

Sun Safety

 

In "the good old days", we used to be told to "Slip, Slop and Slap" to keep safe in the sun. These days, the handy 3 Ss have become 5 must do tips in order to stay safe and reduce the risks of skin cancer in the sun.

 

When the weather gets too warm, we are urged (by the NHS) to:

 

  • slip on a t-shirt
  • slop on sun cream with a protection factor of 30 or more
  • slap on a wide brimmed hat
  • slide on some quality sunglasses
  • shade from the sun wherever possible

 

In the video below, Macmillan Skin Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist, Kate Mayers talks in more detail about how the 5 Ss keep us safe.

The 5 S's of Sun Safety

Macmillan Skin Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist, Kate Mayers, from Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, outlines the 5 S's of Sun Safety.

If you notice any changes in your skin, or your child's skin after exposure to the sun, talk to your GP and have any suspicious marks, moles or spots checked out.

 

You can also talk to Macmillan Caner Trust for support via their website (click on the icon below) or by calling 0800 808 0000.

 

Sea Safety

 

Everyone loves a trip to the seaside... but do be careful as there are many hidden dangers waiting for the unexpecting tourist.

 

The video below from Newsround informs us of flags used by the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) to let us know when it is safe to go into the water.

The main lifeguard interviewed also describes a floating technique to use if you get into trouble while in the water... see the second video for more information.

RNLI: How to stay SAFE on the beach | Newsround

Newsround #watersafety #beachsafety #rnli With summer approaching but many travel restrictions still in place there's a very good chance you'll spend your summer holidays here in the UK, and with thousands of miles of coastline you'll probably be heading to the beach at some point.

Floating is better than swimming for sea survival, says RNLI

New figures released today show 162 people lost their lives on UK coasts in the last year, with adult men accounting for 74% of deaths and 77% over the past five years.
