The Home Office Today, many people work out of their homes. You can make your workspace safer for your family with just a few simple steps.

  • If you have small children at home, use a doorknob cover to keep them from entering the office alone. Install safety covers on unused electrical outlets.
  • Shredders, paper cutters, desktop equipment and other hazards should be placed well out of children’s reach.
  • Make sure taller bookcases are bolted to the wall so they cannot tip. Keep power strips and electrical cords out of walkways and be sure not to overload them.
