With the arrival of snow, many children are eager to bring out their toboggans and sleds and head to
the nearest hill. Unfortunately, many children are injured every year while sledding. Injuries incurred
while tobogganing include cuts and scrapes and even severe head injuries. These injuries can be
prevented by remembering some basic safety tips .
Safety tips to keep you on the hill
Only sled down hills with a gentle slope that have lots of room to stop.
Sled during daylight.
If you are out at night make sure the hill is well lit.
Choose a sled or toboggan that is easy to control.
Put a helmet on children (hockey helmets do the job).
Tuck in scarves, strings, and long toques.
Wait until the path is clear before starting down the hill.
Always sit or kneel facing forward.
Children under five years of age must be with an adult on the toboggan.
Roll to the side if you have to get off in a hurry.
Watch for other people coming down the hill behind you.
Quickly get out of the way when you reach the bottom.
Keep to the side of the hill away from people coming down when you climb back up the hill.
Hills that are too steep.
Hills that are too icy.
Hills that have too many obstacles (trees, bumps, etc.).
Inner tubes, crazy carpets, flying saucers, garbage bags and cardboard boxes. They are difficult
Overcrowding a toboggan with too many riders.
Going down the hill head first (no lying down).
Racing down the hill (on foot or on the sled).
Using your hands and feet to stop the toboggan if you lose control
Be Safe on the Slopes
