Safety rules in the bath and sauna
Neglect of safety in the bath and sauna can lead to tragic consequences, even a fire with human victims. Unfortunately, such cases in our country are not unique. In this article we will tell you what safety rules you need to follow in the sauna and bath.
Fire safety rules in the bath
The main sources of danger in the bath are the stove and chimney. The first rule of operation of furnaces for baths and saunas is not to leave working equipment unattended. Do not use gasoline or other flammable compounds for ignition. It is better to use newsprint or dry birch firewood with bark for these purposes. As for the chimney, it is important to keep it clean, prevent clogging of the canals, periodically remove soot.
Even with the observance of security measures in the bath, unfortunately, it is impossible to completely eliminate the risk of a fire. In this case, it is necessary to provide for the possibility of quick evacuation of visitors from the premises. A common mistake is to place in the steam room a huge amount of bath accessories, clutter of objects and furniture, which you can stumble upon trying to leave the room. That is why it is important to maintain perfect order in the steam room. The door in the steam room should only open outwards. Ideal if in case of an emergency power outage in the steam room there was an autonomous lamp with a battery.
Rules for safe behavior in the bath
In the steam room you can not drink alcohol and drink too cold drinks - this is fraught with changes in blood pressure, at which the risk of heart attacks and strokes increases. In order to avoid burns, do not touch hot metal surfaces without tight protective gloves. Water on hot stones should be served carefully so as not to burn yourself with hot spray.
An equally important aspect of the safety of bath procedures concerns the health of visitors. Bath and sauna should not be visited in case of serious problems in the work of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, exacerbations of chronic diseases and at elevated body temperature. If even the slightest doubts arise as to whether the organism will withstand sudden changes in temperature and humidity, you should always consult a doctor.
