TUtSDAY, SEPTEMBER «T, 1MI BLtTHEVILLB (ARK.T COTJ1OTI MEWf ?AGE SEVEN Home Repairs Will Forestall Accidents Home accident* kill approximately persons and maim or injure over 4,000,000 more every year, reports the National S*fety Council. Many of these accidents can be prevented by home repairs and a little foresight in redecorating. The housewife must act as a safety director in her home, if she ia really going to keep herself and her family free from injury. She, like the plant safety engineer, will need the cooperation of others. Dad can help by repairing things and junior and sister can help by playing only in their own play areas. • About half of the people kiUed'in home accidents are vicitma of falli. About one-fourth of the falls happen on stain or steps. To help prevent these accident*,' be sure the stairs are well lightei have strong handrails, secure carpeting and are not used to store toys, mops, pails etc. .Many falls on the same level are caused by spilled grease or water on the floor, toys and other obstacles under foot and slippy throw- rugs. Wall-to-wall cotton- carpeting and cotton rugs with non-skid backing can make most areas less hazardous. Burns account for the next largest group of horn deaths and in* juries—52000 in 1963.
