As homeowners and managers, we’d probably all claim we pay attention to safety.

We check smoke alarm batteries twice a year and make sure there is a fire extinguisher accessible, and maybe comment on safety code as it relates to deck railings and staircases.

But, if you really think about it, how comprehensive are your home inspections when it comes to safety and risk management?

Do you look under every rug to make sure there is a non-slip pad?

Do you consider the height of a mattress on a bunk bed and ensure that any tall dressers are secured to a wall?

How about testing the water temperature and making sure there are GFCI receptacles in the correct locations?

Those are just a few of the things we look at on visits to a new home and annual checks on existing properties.  

There is so much more.
