How Safe is Your Home?

I frequently tell my husband that one of these days I’m going to trip over his shoes and fall down the basement stairs while I’m carrying the laundry. I don’t really mean it, I just wish he would find some other place to leave his shoes. However, I’m really only partly joking. According to the Home Safety Council, our homes are filled with hidden hazards. The top causes of injuries at home are falls, poisoning, fires/burns, choking and drowning. Do you know where the dangers are in your home and how you can prevent your family from being injured? If you’re not sure, check out this new tool from the Home Safety Council. It’s an interactive house tour that will show you the hidden dangers in your home and how you can fix them. From the kitchen and the bath to the backyard and the basement, you may be surprised at all the little things you can do to make your family safer.
