4 Steps to Reduce Risks in your Home

on August 17, 2012

Follow these proven steps to reduce risks in your home and keep your family safe:

1. IDENTIFY risks by going through your home and note any risks present. Use a checklist of common risks in typical homes. A checklist will not only show you common risks but will also give you an idea what other risks to look for in your home.

2. PRIORITISE the risks you have identified by measuring them in terms of the likelihood and severity of an accident and diary a date for an action to reduce the risk.

3. MANAGE each risk by either removing it or treating it with safety equipment or by changing your habits and/or increasing your family’s awareness of the risk.

4. REVIEW each risk at appropriate intervals and go through steps 1 to 3 again.

We will never know the accidents we prevent nor the lives we save, but that is ok.
