Household Safety Tips

Being “at home” should mean being relaxed, but we also need to be vigilant, because most accidents happen in or near the home. To help ensure your home is truly a safe haven, review this list of safety tips and see what may need your attention:

• Make sure you have at least one functional fire extinguisher, ideally near the kitchen.

• Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors regularly. Replace batteries as recommended.

• If your home has outdated household wiring, replace it.

• Protect children and seniors by properly storing toxic, combustible, or otherwise harmful materials such as solvents, disinfectants, chemicals, medications, etc.

• Slick, smooth stairs should have carpeting or treads, and loose carpets and mats throughout the home should be secured or removed, especially if at the top of a staircase.

• If you don’t already have one, install a home security system. These systems go hand-in-hand with safety, because a good system can protect people as well as possessions.

• Don’t overlook the importance of replacing inadequate locks – they can be easily breached by burglars.
