Home Safety

More than 47 million people in the United States sought medical attention for nonfatal, preventable injuries in 2017. And more than half of the injuries happened in the home. You can prevent injuries in the home if you know what risks to look for and what steps to take to keep them from happening.

The National Safety Council ranks preventable injuries as the third leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer.
