Safe Traveling Tips


When you travel overseas to help with Lifewater Canada projects, your five greatest health and safety risks are:

  1. Heat stroke
  2. Gastro-intestinal illness
  3. Traffic accidents
  4. Injury on the job and/or a transfusion with tainted blood -- after not working safely!
  5. Being mugged in cities or attacked in remote areas -- after walking alone

So . . . 

  1. Wear a hat, drink plenty of fluids, and stay out of the sun as much as possible
  2. Carefully choose what you eat and drink
  3. Carefully choose with whom you travel -- and wear seat belts
  4. Work safely and wear the proper protective equipment
  5. Avoid being along in busy cities or remote areas

When traveling in vehicles, always keep your doors locked and windows rolled up. If you want to hear what is going on around you, crack your window, but just enough to hear.

Be a safe vehicle passenger in urban areas:
