Home, Safe Home
Employers are required by law to make their workplaces as safe as possible for employees, but how safe is your home? If you keep your home free from hazards and have a first aid kit on hand, you might be able to prevent emergencies before they start or have a better outcome.
Learning the steps required to face emergencies and maintain a hazard-free home can give you confidence when a crisis arises and peace of mind every day.
Check out books from our Safety First booklist, and connect with organizations that have online tools to promote emergency preparedness.
