- Wear helmets when sledding to avoid head and brain injuries. Sleds easily reach speeds of 20-25 mph.
- Supervise sledding activities. About 71 percent of unsupervised sledding outings end in injuries, while only 29 percent occur when children are supervised.
- Separate the older children from the younger ones.
- Do not sled where there are snow-covered holes, roots, tree stumps and fences. Avoid areas with a lot of trees.
- Sledding spots should have plenty of flat room at the bottom of the hill. Do not select a spot that ends in the middle of a street, busy parking lot or pond.
- Dress in bright colors to be seen easily.
- Bundle up in layers for extra warmth.
- Have one child sled the course at a time. The next in line should not begin their trip down until the last one has ended their run.
- Do not use sled-substitutes, e.g., cardboard boxes, cafeteria trays.
- Select sleds with steering mechanisms as opposed to snow disks or inner tubes.
- Keep sledding children away from cars and other motorized vehicles.
- Do not ride a sled being pulled by anything motorized.
