    Whiplash Injury in Lynmouth

    Lynmouth is a village in Devon. It is amazing how many accidents take place in the home so we all need to take certain steps to make sure that our homes are as safe as possible.

    Keeping ourselves safe at home

    1. Have non-slip surfaces on floors especially in the kitchen and bathroom and use non-slip polishes on wooden floors.
    2. Fix mats and rugs to the floor and do not place them by the stairs or on landings.
    3. Repair or throw away badly worn carpets, rugs and linoleum.
    4. Make sure that stair carpets are firmly fixed and in good repair.
    5. Loose fitting slippers and trailing hems on dressing gowns can cause falls especially with the children and elderly.
    6. Wherever possible, keep shelves at a low height and always use a strong stepladder that is in good repair to reach higher up shelves. Do not over reach and keep a hand free to steady yourself. Don’t stand on an upholstered chair or stand on one with loose cushions to reach up high.
    7. Keep stairs, entrance halls, landings and outside porches and steps well lit.
    8. Do not have long flexes which trail on table lamps as these are easy to trip over.
    9. Keep kitchen knives out of the reach of children and do not use them for jobs they were not intended for e.g. opening a tin. Always use a good tin opener.
    10. When cooking, always try to cook on the back rings and make sure that pan handles do not stick out as they can be knocked if someone walks past the cooker. If the pan contains boiling water or oil, this would end up with someone being burned.
    11. The garden can be just as dangerous and it is important that all garden tools are put away in a shed when they are not in use. If a garden rake is left lying around it can easily be stepped upon and end up hitting someone forcefully in the face.
