Home Safety

There can be many safety hazards around the home. Use the home safety checklists below to:

  • Walk through each room in your home
  • Notice what you are already doing to reduce the chance of injury
  • Notice changes you can make to remove any hazards before an injury occurs

The home safety checklists are meant to prevent injury for both children and older adults and include other helpful tips.
