An accident or injury can occur in any part of your home. Some
safety hazards are obvious - such as a toy truck left lying at the
top of the stairs. Others are not so easily identified - such as a
stairway railing that has become loose.
Use these checklists to make a safety check of your home. You
should answer "yes" to all of these questions.
To get started, click on a checklist below. Select

as you perform each safety check.
