13. Leaving your pool easily accessible when it’s unsupervised
It’s really nice to have a swimming pool in your backyard, but when it comes to home safety is actually a big responsibility.
According to a report written by the CPSC, 45 percent of the estimated nonfatal drowning injuries sustained at a pool or spa between 2015 and 2017, involving children younger than 15 years old, occurred at a residence. You should really use that pool cover when you’re not around.
14. Doing the same thing with your bathtub
According to the CDC, bathtub drownings accounted for approximately 10 percent of both fatal and non-fatal drownings from 2005 to 2009. What’s more, children under the age of 5 are most likely to suffer from a serious drowning incident, so never leave your children or grandchildren unattended during bath time and make sure to drain the tub when they get out.
