National Safety Month – June 2014

Each June, the National Safety Council celebrates National Safety Month as a time to bring attention to key safety issues. With a bit of planning, you can help reducing the risk of the following safety issues:

Week 1: Preventing Prescription Drug Abuse
If you or a family member receives a prescription for these types of drugs, take these steps to prevent drug misuse:

  • Always follow the doctor recommended dosage
  • Keep medications in their original container, up & away from the reach of children and pets
  • Throw out leftover or expired drugs safely; visit nsc.org/disposalresources for more information

All-Guard can help you keep your home safer by installing a sensor on your medicine cabinet which will prevent your children – or nosy visitors – to access your cabinet without your being alerted. Call us at 800.255.4273 for more information.

Week 2: Stop Slips, Trips, and Falls
Walking surfaces can be unpredictable. Whether it’s a change in elevation or brutal weather, always be proactive in preventing slips, trips and falls:

  • Wear appropriate shoes for the task at hand
  • When getting out of a vehicle, create points of contact by holding onto the door, roof or assist handle
  • In inclement weather, wipe shoes well on rugs when entering buildings to prevent tracking in water, snow, and salt
  • Avoid distracted walking and remain alert for any surface changes (i.e. tile to carpet or heightened sidewalk blocks)
  • Six out of 10 falls happen at home –adding handrails, maintaining good housekeeping and cleaning spills will help minimize risk
  • Follow basic safety rules when using ladders: check its condition before use and maintain 3 points contact on the ladder at all times

All-Guard’s cameras can help you keep an eye on elderly or frail relatives. With just a push on button, our medical alert pendent will alert our monitoring station should you or a relative need medical aid. Call us at 800.255.4273 for more information.

Week 3: Be Aware of Your Surroundings
Today, there are always multiple things vying for your attention. However, a lack of focus on the task at hand can lead to tragedy, especially in riskier situations.

You can take steps to make your home safer from contact with objects. Think about your furniture arrangement so there is always enough room for normal traffic. Don’t fall victim to distracted walking, especially when using your cell phone. Be present in the moment and try to keep your mind from wandering, even if it’s a task you’ve done a million times.

Week 4: Put an End to Distracted Driving
Cell phone use while driving has become an unfortunate part of our culture, but is a very dangerous activity that shouldn’t be considered a necessity – business or otherwise. There are steps you can take to make it easier to put down the phone when you are behind the wheel such as schedule calls for times when you will not be driving, and tell other people not to call you when they know you will be driving.

No phone call is worth a life. Want to do more? Encourage your family and friends to put down their cell phones while driving, and speak up if you are riding with a driver who is using a cell phone. You also can refrain from talking on the phone with others if you know they are driving.

Help make June – and the rest of the year – safer for you and your surroundings.
