There is two things you need to know; firstly, most accidents happen in the home. Of course by their very nature they are never intentional, and one sometimes wonders why they have ended up in the local emergency room, as the home should be a place of safety.
The second thing you need to appreciate is that usually most accidents are preventable. The astonishing thing is that with care and attention, there really is no need for so many visits to A & E.
You wouldn’t entrust your life to an airline crew if you weren’t confident that they’d taken every precaution to ensure the safety of their passengers, so why do we not take the same care with our homes?
One of the major causes of accidents is poor lighting, and often this can be the case on the stairs or the landing area. If lighting is poor one can easily stumble, and the next thing you know you have an injury that needs immediate attention. Knock-on effects can be costly, especially if you have to take time off work.
It’s not that difficult to ensure lighting is adequate, and one way of bringing quality natural lighting into the home is by installing one of Syneco’s solarspot sun tunnels. If you have an average-sized home, the cost is minimal compared to what you might incur from a serious accident. The time taken to install the sun tunnel can be as little as a few hours, and you’ll be able to light an area of up to 12 square meters if you use the Solarspot D-25. Larger models are available for larger areas. It doesn’t involve extensive structural modifications or redecoration, so disruption in your home is minimal.
With a little forethought and appropriate action, accidents don’t need to happen. Give Syneco a call on 01908 299117, or browse our website to find out how to stop accidents happening in your home.
