and Deaths
•   Drowning
•   Water Sports
•   Falls
•   Outdoor Recreation
•   Team Contact Sports
                      Water Safety
• Boating
    Make sure the boat is in top operating condition and no tripping
     hazards exist.
    Safety equipment, required by law, is on board, maintained in good
     condition, and you know how to properly use these devices.
    Have a complete knowledge of the operation and handling
     characteristics of your boat.
    Maintain a safe speed at all times to avoid collision.
    Know and practice the Rules of the Road (Navigation Rules).
    Keep an eye on the weather.
• Swimming
    Have a first aid kit handy. Adults should be trained in CPR.
    Always use (approved) personal flotation devices.
    Never leave a child alone near water – at the pool, the beach or in the
     tub.
    Avoid water near industrial areas, boating and heavy water traffic
     ways.
                    Avoid Falls
• At Home
   Keep electrical and telephone cords out of walkways
   Secure all carpet with double-back tape and install slip-resistant finishes
    in bathtubs
   Remove hazards. Harmless-looking items like a child’s crayon or a
    magazine on the floor can easily cause a fall
   Install handrails on stairways and bathtubs and make sure they are
    securely attached to the wall.
   Clean up grease, water and other liquids immediately. Don’t wax floors.
   Keep furniture – or anything children can climb – away from windows.
   Use appropriate ladders and step-stools to get out-of-reach items. Pay
    attention to warning labels on ladders.
                   Avoid Falls
• At Work
   Keep your eyes and mind on the job at hand. Don't be caught
    daydreaming in slippery and dangerous work areas.
   Use appropriate ladders and step-stools to get out-of-reach
    items. Pay attention to warning labels on ladders.
   Install guardrail, safety net, or personal fall-arrest system in
    construction sites.
   Repair carpet tears immediately.
   Use safety cord covers to provide protection for power cords in
    high-traffic areas.
   If working in a wet area, wear slip-resistant footwear and keep
    the footwear clean of mud and debris.
   Make sure that adequate handrails are present to prevent falling
    from ladders and steps.
        What Can You Do to Avoid
        Recreation Sports Injuries?
 Make sure you have the proper skills and training before participating
   in any sport.
 Use the proper protective gear for a particular sport. This may lessen
   the chances of being injured.
 Minimize the chance of muscle strain or other soft-tissue injury by
   warming up before starting. Cool down later to loosen the body’s
   muscles.
 Apply sunscreen and wear a hat (where possible) to reduce the
   chance of sunburn.
 If a person receives a soft-tissue injury (a sprain or a bone injury),
   immediately treat with RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation).
 Schedule frequent water breaks during practices and games, and use
   misting sprays to keep the body cool.
Secure Your Valuables
     ENERGY AWARENESS
• TURN OFF LIGHTS WHEN NOT IN ROOM
• CLOSE WINDOW BLINDS TO KEEP ROOM COOL
• TURN OFF OFFICE ELECTRONICS WHEN YOU CLOSE
• TIMERS ON APPLIANCES
• CAULK AND WEATERSTRIP DOORS AND WINDOWS
• DON’T LET WATER RUN WHEN SHAVING, WASHING
DISHES, BRUSHING TEETH….
• GET OUTSIDE TO COOL OFF AT THE POOL……

SMOKE DETECTORS
SMOKE DETECTORS
• Housing smoke detectors are local,
  audible devices, and do not notify the fire
  department.
• Detectors are hard wired and have battery
  back up.
• Test and clean your smoke detectors at
  least once a month.
• Occupants need to change the battery
  semi-annually. Rule of thumb, every day
  light savings.
SMOKE DETECTORS CONT.

• When cooking open a window or door for
  ventilation.
• Smoke, and toxic gas inhalation is what
  incapacitates humans beings. (You will not
  smell smoke in your sleep).
• Housing Maintenance is responsible for
  the replacement of all smoke detectors.
