Have a safe and joyful holiday season.

Have a safe and joyful holiday season.
Posted 07th December 2017

We have now entered the holiday season and everyone is excited to spend time with loved ones and create new memories.

Although everyone wants to have an enjoyable and peaceful time, many forget how to spend this festive period in a safe and responsible way.

We have listed a few tips that will help you create a safe atmosphere around you.

  1. - Avoid displaying gifts that can be seen through windows and doors. Thieves are very active in this time of year so make sure you protect your valuable items by placing them in covered areas, locking doors and putting down window blinds.
  2. - Prepare food safely. Many meals are prepared during this time of year, so ensure everyone enjoys food safely. Don’t rinse raw meat and poultry before cooking and use a food thermometer to make sure food is cooked to a safe temperature. Don’t forget to wash your hands frequently when handling different foods to prevent the spread of bacteria.
  3. - Handle fire safely. Don’t leave candles unattended, especially with children around. Before you string lights on the house or the tree, be sure to inspect the strands to make sure there aren’t any frayed cords or cracked lamps. Replace any broken lamps and throw away strands with frayed cords
  4. - Do not drink and drive. Whether you host or attend a party avoid being behind the wheel or allowing others under a high consumption of alcohol to drive. A large percentage of road incidents are caused in this time of year so make sure you don’t turn this festive season into a nightmare for yourself or others around you.


The Libben team wishes everyone a nice and safe holiday season. We hope you will start off the new year happily! Don’t forget that we are giving presents to all of you for the month of December whenever you book a course with us, so click here to get in the loop.
