If you get hurt, who else gets harmed? It could be the people you care about. Whatever you’re doing, think about how safe you are, so that you can keep doing the things you love, with the people you love.
Each summer thousands of New Zealanders become injured and aren’t able to enjoy the things they love to do. When we get hurt, it affects our family, friends, workmates and others too. The good news is that nearly all injuries are preventable. If we can see it coming, we can stop it from happening. If we assess things before we get stuck in and choose to do things safely we can keep doing the things we love (or have to do!).
