Balcony safety

Balconies are a great place to relax but they are one of the most common places for accidents to occur while on holiday. So just as you’d take care around a pool or in your hotel, here are some tips on how to stay safe on your balcony.

  • Never stand on balcony furniture
  • Never sit or lean over a balcony rail
  • If it’s a bright sunny day or dark, it can be hard to see if a glass balcony door is open or closed so be careful not to walk into it.

If you have children with you then you need to take a couple of extra precautions.

  • Never leave children unsupervised on a balcony
  • Don’t leave balcony furniture or anything children can stand or climb on near a balcony edge
