Stay on your feet® – your home safety checklist - by NSW Health looks at safety in and around your home - http://www.health.nsw.gov.au/pubs/2008/pdf/030295_stay_on_feet_5-26.pdf

The checklist also provides actions for you to take to make sure your home is safe inside and out.
Topics covered are: floor, lighting ,stairs, steps, ladder, bathroom and toilet, kitchen, lounge room, bedroom, clothing , foot wear and walking aids.The aged case work team has seen the benefit of wearing supportive shoes and
checking the type of foot wear you wear!
