Home Safety Survey

  1. Home Safety Survey
    This is a home safety survey that will help you determine some possible hazards in and around your home. It is anonymous and for no other purpose than to help you think about the safety of you and anyone in your home. There are about 40 quick questions to consider. We encourage you to fix any hazards you may discover before they lead to problems or injuries.
