Health and Safety

Injuries and the Home
The Home Safety Council indicates that employers spend an annual average of $280 per employee for injuries caused in homes. That amounts to $38 billion a year. These injuries have an economic impact on health care insurance, sick leave and overall disability costs at the workplace. They also affect worker morale and diminish lifestyle choices outside of work.

 

Falls alone account for more than 40 percent of all non-fatal home injuries. To increase your awareness regarding home safety and to learn prevention tips, check out the Home Safety Council site at http://www.homesafetycouncil.org/index.aspx, particularly the 2004 report on the State of Home Safety. 

 

For more information, contact the Department of Environmental Health and Safety at 202-319-4461.
