March Safety Tips
Spring Activities May Increase Risk of Home
As the weather warms, American families are turning their
attention to in-home spring cleaning as well as outdoor projects
and play. Whether household chores and cleaning,
do-it-yourself tasks or playground games, these common spring
activities are often associated with a a number of serious home
dangers including falls, poisonings, fires/burns and drowning
hazards. The Home Safety Council says the risk of injury
can be greatly reduced by following simple safety steps inside
and outside the home.
According to the Home Safety Council's State of Home Safety in
America report, nearly 20,000 deaths and 21 million medical
visits result from unintentional home injuries in an average
year. Chores as simple as reorganizing cabinets can make
families vulnerable to falls and poisoning - the two leading
causes of unintentional home injury in America.
"Home injuries are a year round problem, but certain spring
activities put families at even greater risk outdoors and around
the house" according to the Home Safety Council. "We want
people to be able to recognize potential dangers associated with
these activities and make quick and easy adjustments in and
around the home before getting caught up in spring activities."
Spring Cleaning the Safe Way
The Home Safety Council urges families to keep safe practices
that help prevent falls, poisonings fires/burns and drowning top
of mind while cleaning out your home, garage and yard.
When cleaning out closets or re-organizing, reduce the risk of
falls by keeping stairs, steps, landings and all floors clear of
Carry loads you can see over, and keep one hand free to hold
banisters and railings.
Remember to reduce clutter and safely tuck away telephone and
electrical cords out of the walkways. In homes with
children, make sure toys and other items are always safely put
away when not in use.
If you need to climb, use a stepladder or safety ladder.
When using a ladder, stand at or below the highest safe standing
level. For a stepladder, the safe standing level is the
second rung from the top, and for an extension ladder, it is the
fourth rung from the top. Before using, make sure the
rungs are dry and the ladder is securely positioned on a a flat
When cleaning out cabinets, read all product and medications
labels carefully and separate those that say :Caution"
"Warning", or "Danger" on them. To prevent poison
exposures, lock these up out of sight and reach of young
Follow safety recommendations when using harsh products, such as
wearing gloves and masks. Do not mix products together
because their contents could react with dangerous results.
Never use gasoline as a cleaning solvent and never use or store
gasoline in your home, even in tiny quantities. Because
its vapors can readily ignite, gasoline can present a serious
fire home hazard and is too dangerous to use for any purpose
other than as a motor fuel.
Large buckets are often used while cleaning and present a
serious drowning danger to young children. Never leave a
bucket or any standing water unattended and store all buckets
and barrels empty and upside-down.
A Safe Backyard
As the weather becomes warmer and days are longer, we spend as
much time as we can outdoors enjoying the backyard. It is
important to remember the following tips while in the yard,
especially if you have children.
Lawn and Garden Safety
Keep children inside the house or well away from the area you
Never let children ride on tractor mowers and make all mowers
and power tools "off limits: to young kids when stored.
Wear closed-toe shoes when mowing.
Before mowing, prepare your lawn by walking over it, checking
for broken limbs, stones, toys and anything else that could
shoot out from under the mower or damage the blade.
Before you start your lawn mower for the first time, check to
make sure that all guards are in place.
Refuel mowers outside, when the engine is cool, and well away
from any sparks, flames or heat sources. Properly
clean any spilled gasoline.
Never reach under mowers unless it is turn off and the blade has
completely stopped turning and only refuel
the mower after it has completely cooled down.
Practice poison prevention. You should only store pesticides
and herbicides in their original containers, then place on
high shelves or inside locked cabinets, out of reach of
Garden tools such as rakes, spades, forks, pruning clippers,
files and metal plant stakes should not be left lying around
the house not in use. Store these with sharp points aiming
Wear proper eye protection when using any power tool and
don’t wear any loose or dangling clothing that could be
caught in moving parts.
Playground Safety Tips
Cover areas under and around play equipment with soft
materials such as wood chips, wood mulch, and sand
(materials should be nine to 12 inches deep and extend six
feet from all sides of play equipment).
Do not suspend more than two swing seats in the same section
of the swing support structure.
Check equipment for signs of deterioration or corrosion,
including rust, chipped paint, splitting or cracked plastic
components or loose splinters.
Avoid putting play equipment close together. For example,
stationary climbing equipment should have and uncluttered
fall zone of at least six feet in all directions of
equipment. For swings, the minimum use zone extends at least
twice the height of the swing beam.
Slides and platforms for climbing equipment should not
exceed heights of six feet for school-age children or four
feet for pre-school children.
Beware of entrapment or entanglement hazards. A child’s head
can be trapped in openings between 3.5 and 9 inches wide. Pull out drawstrings in children’s outerwear and remove
necklaces, purses and scarves before play.
Avoid elevated platforms, walkways, or ramps that lack
adequate guardrails or other barriers (to help children from
Watch for possible tripping hazards such as rocks and roots.
Clear this debris from your child’s play area.
Always supervise children when they are using playground
