January is National Bath Safety Month
In Canada, January is National Bath Safety Month.
According to a report from Queensland, Australia titled "Bathroom Proves Dangerous For Queenslanders,"
"Approximately 3,700 Queenslanders are injured in their bathroom each year according to the latest statistics released by the Queensland Injury Surveillance Unit (QISU) at Mater Health Services in Brisbane. Children under the age of 5 years old were most at risk of obtaining an injury in the bathroom accounting for over 40% of these injuries, whilst the elderly were also at high risk, particularly those over the age of 85 years old". "
Given that January is National Bath Safety Month in Canada. We at Life Choice thought it would be a good idea to provide some information and tips on bath safety not only for children and the elderly, but tips that can be used by your entire family to ensure your safety and theirs.

The Use of infant bath seats and bath rings has been linked to the drowning deaths of infants in Canada. Drownings have occurred when the suction cups on the bath seats became loose and the bath seat tipped over. Babies have also slipped through the leg opening, or climbed out of the bath seat. These deaths occurred when the babies were out of the caregivers sight and reach for only a few seconds. Health Canada does not recommend their use.
