Each year over three million people end up in hospital after an accident in their own home, and tragically, there are around 4000 deaths caused by accidents in the home each year.

Children under 5 and older people are most likely to be injured at home. Many accidents can be avoided by taking some simple precautions. If you are a parent seek advice on how to child proof your home. Otherwise think carefully about your actions and don't take risks.
