Home Safety

Did you know that most injuries to young children occur in their homes? The key to preventing an injury is eliminating the common hazards that exist around the home before an injury can occur. We encourage you to use the Home Safety Checklist for Parents and Guardians that we have created to address these hazards.

While falls are the leading cause of injury in the home, we have highlighted various hazards that you need to look out for as they increase the risk of injury due to other causes such as burns, poisoning, chocking and drowning.
