How safe is your home ?

Have you got young children or teenagers in your household? 
or have you got elderly parents or friends that live alone?

We like to think of our homes as our 'Safe Place', somewhere we can feel secure and protect our families, yet every room and activity we perform within it is full of dangers. Some we even know about, yet we choose to ignore. Our complacency and our misbelieved notions that 'it will not happen to us' can be our own biggest downfall, and unfortunately of those we love too.

IT DOES HAPPEN..... and the consequences can be fatal!

Our Children spend more time out of vision playing with computers and game machines, yet this modern technology has many risks of its own. The elderly still use outdated thinking and equipment which do not work with today's ever changing environment. Our bad habits learnt from previous generations or our own ignorance places the ones we care about most in life at very high risk.

Aimed at all the family this book is designed to highlight and alert you to many of the unknown dangers lurking within your home. It is full of safety tips, and details some new safety ideas that you can incorporate into your own home.
It also includes handy exercises and room checklists so you can personally assess the safety of each room in your own environment.

The author has utilised his extensive Health & Safety knowledge and training along with his experience as a Professional Ambulance man who had to enter many private homes in the course of his work.
This book should make you think about your own home, your own behaviours and those old learnt bad habits. Raising your awareness it will hopefully help you keep your family Safe, Healthy and hopefully Accident Free.

    “we dont know the half of what's involved in working for the ambulance service and the pressures involved. I learnt a lot from this account and it has been very thought provoking. even building design can effect how a patient is handled when the ambulance Crewe arrive”
