Safety Begins at Home
You walk your kids to and from school to make sure they arrive safely. You buckle up the minute you get in your vehicle and followed the car seat installation instructions to the letter. You wear a helmet when you ride your bike with the kids. You've got your computer backing up daily and have virus protection software installed. You definitely keep the doors and windows of your home locked. However, safety should begin INSIDE your home and not simply focus on the outside hazards.
According to the Utah Safety Council website, more than 1/3 of Americans are injured & disabled for a day or more by unintentional injuries WITHIN their homes. That number is more than workplace injuries and car accidents--COMBINED. How safe do you feel inside your locked home now?
