Safety at Home
As summer draws to a close, back-to-school season is in full effect. Safety should be a priority for every family as children return to classrooms this fall. It is important for parents to stay up-to-date on the proper safety
precautions and share this information with their children to keep them safe throughout the school year. There are a number of “safety at home”, “safety on the road”, and “school safety” articles provided by The Canada Safety Council and National Safety Council website that can be accessed.
Of all the disabling injuries, over 60% happen at home. Nearly twice as many people are killed in home incidents as at work. An estimated 4.27 million Canadians age 12 or older suffered an injury severe enough to limit their usual activities in 2009-2010. There are many hazards around the home and the key is to eliminate risk before an injury occurs.
