The Evesham Township Police Department is reminding residents that June is National Safety Month.
According to police, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the roads and in our homes and communities.
Police have provided the list of tips below to prevent accidental falls, both at home and at work:
- Aisles, stairs and walkways should be clutter-free; spills should be wiped, dropped objects picked up and cabinet drawers closed when not in use.
- Use handrails in stairways; take one step at a time and report or repair broken stairs or loose stair coverings.
- Apply nonskid floor coatings and slip-resistant mats where falls are likely. Slow down and take small steps when walking on a wet or slippery surface.
- Inspect ladders before and after every use.
