WASHINGTON, D.C. – During these times of uncertainty, you want your home to be a safe place for you and your loved ones. Especially now, when you are spending so much time indoors, you need to be able to identify and handle the hidden hazards in your home that can cause injury or death. Just as you are working to protect those you love from COVID-19, CPSC urges you to protect your family from these hazards as well. 

CPSC continues to protect the public from dangerous consumer products through science, investigation, corrective action and communication. In response to the current crisis, CPSC has created a series of Home Safe Checklists, whether your home has babies, teens or seniors—or all of them. Print the lists that work for you, and spend a few moments checking off the safety items. When so much in the world seems beyond control, these checklists are simple, clear steps you can take for the safety of your family.
