Staying Safe and Avoiding Injury

Physical activity is generally safe for everyone. People who are physically fit have less chance of injury than those who are not fit. The health benefits you gain from being active are far greater than the chances of getting hurt. Being inactive is definitely not good for your health.

Here are some things you can do to stay safe while you are active:

                        If you haven’t been active in a while, start slowly and build up.

                        Learn about the types and amounts of activity that are right for you.

                        Choose activities that are appropriate for your fitness level.

              Build up the time you spend before switching to activities that take more effort.

 Use the right safety gear and sports equipment.

 Choose a safe place to do your activity.

See a health care provider if you have a health problem.
