Golf analysts have gotten on board the Make Sports Safer (and maybe sell a bunch of specialized safety equipment in the process) Train. The most common golf injuries reported to the emergency rooms across the country are from the ball or the club actually impacting the face or head. This finding led to a study by Janda reported in Golf Digest magazine in which an automobile crash dummy took a vacation at the golf course. Using a golf ball machine to propel the ball Cheap Marquese Chriss Jersey , the dummy was hit in the head, chest and arm. Then computer equipment recorded the impact data from the dummy's load cells to determine the extent of injuries. Janda found that most of the simulated injuries could be serious or fatal unless treated properly and quickly. That crash dummy was probably thinking "Duh! if you get hit with a ball or a club in the head, it's going to hurt! Who's the dummy here?"

Hearing that people are dying on the golf course from head injuries conjures up a picture of golf balls flying wildly about, and frustrated golfers who vent their emotions by flinging their clubs, possibly stiking unsuspecting passersby! This is so far from the truth as to be ludicrous. The fact is that the people whose deaths have been reported as golf related as children, not adults, and there are very few of them.

Here are some numbers compiled by pediatric neurosurgeons at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta between 1996 and 2002. A review of 2,546 patients under age 19 revealed 64 sports-related injuries, 15 of which were golf-related. Seven of the golf injuries were caused by golf cart accidents, seven by golf clubs and one by a golf ball, A report by Dr. Scott Y. Rahimi, neurosurgery resident and lead author on the study published in the March issue of Journal of Neurosurgery states that Seventeen bicycle-related head injuries during that period barely beat out golf as the major cause of sports-related head injuries in these children.

Wow, reading that any parent believe that golf is a dangerous sport, and children should be wearing helmets. After all, bicyclists are required to wear helmets. Horseback riders are required to wear helmets, and according to this study, horseback riding isn't one of the top two causes of head injuries to children. Why not golf? Well,other than that it is hard to imagine a hard helmet in place of one of those plaid berets. The golf fashion police would simply not allow it.

All kidding aside, take cnts, seven by golf clubs and one by a golf ball. The seven golf cart accidents are actually automotive and not directly related to the sport of golf. Considering only the 8 instances of injury by club or ball: only 1 in every 318 people is injured on a golf course by a club or a ball, and the study reported 1 child died. That's 1 in every 2546 people.

On the other hand, consider lightening fatalities and injuries. The government statisticians tell us that based on the NOAA publication Storm Datathat over the last 36 years, there have been an average of 90 lightening deaths and 300 injuries from lightning in the US annually. In 2002 there were There were 97,900 accidental deaths in the US. Lighting is the most stable of all the weather related accident statistics, so assuming 90 deaths by
lightning in 2002, that is 1 in every 1087 people. Comparing the potential for death by lightning ro death by golf related injury, you have twice as much chance as dying from lightning than from an injury on the golf course.

The bottom line is that golf is a safe sport. Researchers who are trying to dip into the grant money available for safety studies and reporting that golf-related injuries constitute a common type of sports injury are not doing anyone any favors. We can only hope that some misguided government bureaucrat doesn't read one of these reports and decide that golf is the next area in which the government needs to guarantee our safety by making us all wear helmets on the golf course.

The subject of spill kits is one particular which, around the surface area may perhaps appear to be very very easy and easy, but after you begin to investigate it slightly further more presents a complete range of difficulties and decisions which haven’t any easy answers.

It happens to be frequently for this reason that various corporations elect to just take what they give some thought to for being a safe and sound route, the middle ground, choosing typical objective absorbents and common function spill kits as their major, or in a few circumstances, only spill command remedy. The problem using this type of is standard reason absorbents will not be normally acceptable, and in fact quite a few consumers make the error of thinking which the word ‘general’ is really a synonym on the word all. A basic goal spill kits seriously isn’t precisely the same being an all function spill package, and also to fail to generate this distinction can effortlessly cause a catastrophe. Spills may not take place especially frequently, but whenever they do they can lead to an array of problems from the inconvenience of getting to close off a possible active thoroughfare within the internet business premises towards risk of people falling in excess of, slipping or skidding, plus the ramifications these an incident is possible to result in, and any hazard to possibly machines close by, or even the atmosphere.

Having the ability to deal rapidly and correctly with any spillage is significant, which is why developing the perfect spill kits on hand makes like a big difference.
