About this work


Frank Rowntree talks about home hazards. A recent conference hosted by a Medical Commission identified that accidents in the home are numerous. The conference discussed the provision of emergency services in response to home accidents. A more scientific approach is being adopted by studying the statistical evidence. In particular, it is noted that the elderly are vulnerable as well as the very young. Rowntree asks the listeners to look around them for obvious hazards such as trip hazards and poisons stored at child levels.
