Staying safe in summer

Man and woman having a picnic overlooking the sea on the West CoastTwo of the great things about summer are warmer temperatures and longer days. They mean we can spend more time outdoors. But they also come with a few risks.

You can also read about Sun-smart behaviour, how to treat diarrhoea and vomiting caused by food poisoning in adults and children and how to prevent and treat bites & stings.
