Health Tip: Make Your Garage Safer

Health Tip: Make Your Garage Safer

11/14/11

(HealthDay News) -- The garage can be a prime spot for falls, accidents and injuries. But the U.S. Home Safety Council suggests how you can create a safer garage:

  • Keep the floor and stairs clear of clutter, with good lighting throughout the garage.
  • On any shelving, store heavier items closer to the ground.
  • Install child-proof safety locks on any working refrigerators or freezers. If they don't work, remove the doors.
  • Store any electrical tools or sharp tools out of the reach of children.
  • Make sure all stairs have handrails, with bright lighting at the top and bottom.
  • Clean up grease and other spills as they occur.
  • Make sure the garage door has an auto-reverse feature, and test it to be sure it works properly.
