Unforeseen personal injuries could happen anywhere and at anytime, even in your own home, and that is why you need to be very careful at all times.
Some tips to keep you safe at home
- Do not smoke in bed, as bedrooms are a very common place for a fire to start;
- Do not abuse or misuse over-the-counter medications, as these are not safer alternatives to illicit substances;
- If you are using a mattress that has been made before 2007, make sure to replace it as soon as possible, as it could be a fire hazard;
- Before using any product, read the label very carefully to ensure that you are not going to be taking a poisonous substance;
- When you are using portable heaters, make sure that you take care;
- Use warmers and electric blankets that have been lab-approved;
- If you are spraying chemicals or pesticides, wear protective clothes such as socks, shoes, long pants, long sleeves and gloves; and
- After you have taken your medicine, make sure you keep it out of reach of kids.
