Have you ever taken a safety tour of your own home? You might wonder what that is, and basically, it means that you take a walk around your home and try to look at it with the eyes of a stranger. This will help you to figure out where there might be safety hazards that you just don’t think about as you go about your day.
For example, if you are walking under a large tree, does there seem to be dead branches that could fall down and harm someone?
Is your walkway uneven and difficult to walk on? Could an older person have a problem walking without falling?
Inside your home, are there electrical cords that are damaged that could lead to electrocution?
If you take a thorough look at your home with safety in mind, you might find that you have quite a bit of work to do to make sure your home is a safe place to live.
