Safety at home is more than a good lock on the doors and windows. June is National Safety Month and a great time to review your household’s safety plans. We encounter countless hazards in our daily lives at work and home. Often many of these dangers present themselves during mundane of tasks when we let our guard down (or our minds wander) which means they are mostly preventable. The National Safety Council has put together several articles about safety at work, home, and on the road to help you identify risks and how to take the proper precautions.
