Injury Prevention

Your Safety

The environment in which you live is a key factor in preventing a fall.

Most falls happen in and around the home. Find out how safe your home is with our Staying Independent - Home Safety Checklist.

Identifying the hazards in your home is only the first step. It is important to fix the problems you identify, in order to make your living space safe. If you feel you are not quite up to the job, contact a local contractor or a handy family member, friend or neighbour.

If money is a concern in making your home safe, checkout possibilities for financial assistance below:

We all have social responsibility when it comes to safety…

If you notice something unsafe in your community, whether it is in a grocery store or at the park, you can prevent an injury by reporting it.

If the hazard is within a privately owned space, report the issue to the owner or manager in charge.

If the hazard is in a public space, you can report it to the city or municipality where it is discovered. 

Here is a letter you can print to assist you in the process:
