Home Safety Guide & Evaluation

We do so much to protect ourselves at work — but do we do the same at home? According to the National Safety Council (NCS), US workers are actually safer on the job than in their homes or communities.

The NSC website notes:

Home and community deaths are up 74%. According to the 2011 edition of the National Safety Council Injury Facts:

  • Nine out of ten deaths occurred off the job
  • Nearly three-fourths of medically consulted injuries occurred off the job

Here is a guide to help you check and evaluate potential risks at your home to help you be as safe at home as you are at your mill.
