Every year, thousands of deaths are caused by household accidents.
 
Many mishaps can be avoided with common sense and smart prevention. For example, you should keep household chemicals, medications, sharp instruments or easily swallowed objects out of the reach of children.
 
To be prepared for the most common at-home injuries, take time to learn basic first-aid information, as well as some possible danger signs. If the danger signs are noted, immediate medical attention is advised.
