Why “Home Safety” Matters:
A home can be just as dangerous as a workplace, and an injury can have you laid up for days or weeks. Or you could even be permanently disabled and not be able to perform your current job. That’s why it’s important to think about home safety. After all, safety is a 24/7 concern for all of us.
