Protecting Your Family Starts At Home
Home Related Injuries
On average, home-related injuries result in nearly 20,000 deaths and 21 million visits to doctors and hospitals each year.
In an ongoing effort to educate and empower families to take actions that will help keep them safe in and around their homes, the Home Safety Council works to provide home safety resources to local safety advocates, teachers, corporations, and community educators.
Home Safety Awareness Month, observed each June, is dedicated to promoting home safety by educating people about common injuries and their prevention. Follow these steps to create a safe home environment.
