Garage Safety

  • Click here to learn how to find and fix fall hazards in your garage.
  • Click here to learn how to best organize the tools in your garage.

Garages aren't just for cars; they are an extension of our homes. Most families use the garage for storage or projects that are too big or too messy for indoors. Unfortunately, the garage can be a magnet for junk, which also makes it a place where falls, poisonings and fires can happen.

Set aside one Saturday this month as a “Safety Saturday” and work with your family to clean out and organize your garage. Start by deciding what to keep and what items you don’t need in your garage. From there, group items you use together like bikes and biking supplies, gardening supplies and tools together for easy access.

Falling and accidental poisoning are two of the most common injuries that happen in the garage. Installing shelves or securely hanging items from the walls and ceilings will help create additional space in the garage and reduce tripping hazards. To prevent poisonings, be sure all poisonous items are securely locked in high cabinets and out of reach of children.
