Preventing Accidents

Many accidents that happen in the home can be avoided. Here are some things to look out for:

  • When cooking, turn all pan handles away from the edge
  • Avoid trip hazards – for example trailing flexes or loose rugs
  • Keep hot things away from the edge of tables or work surfaces so that young children cannot reach them
  • Use socket covers to protect young children
  • Take care if using steps, etc to reach up high
  • Keep medicines, cleaning products and chemicals for garden use etc. out of reach of children and don’t transfer them out of their original containers
