Staying Safe

Walking is a safe activity, however it is always best to be prepared and understand your surroundings. The following tips are designed to help make walking an enjoyable experience with your safety in mind.

  • Look out for other road users, when crossing roads it is easier to hear cars and other motor vehicles, but cyclists are much quieter.
  • Gradually build up your walking stamina.  Take it steady at first to help prevent yourself from overdoing it. With regular activity you will quickly see the benefits of walking and notice a vast improvement to your overall fitness.
  • Wear suitable clothing and make sure you are prepared if the weather turns.  Be sure to wear bright clothes and reflective clothing if you have to walk at night.
  • Wear suitable shoes as well to prevent blisters etc.
  • Cross roads at suitable crossings, always remembering to look both ways, and try to keep to well lit pathways.
  • Consider finding a walking buddy from your work site, we will be implementing this as a new scheme in  2019.
