Resource in Falls updated 3 Jun 2015

This competition closed on Friday 31 July 2015.


 

Out damned clutter! is a competition for aged residential care facilities, with a prize for the best before and after photo.

The ‘before’ photo should have lots of potential falls hazards, and the ‘after’ photo should be a perfect example of a safe environment. The best five entries, as judged by Health Quality & Safety Commission staff, will get morning teas to the value of $100.

See Topic 4 (http://bit.ly/18Lon8D) in the 10 Topics in reducing harm from falls series for tips on clutter-free environments, including clear pathways, good lighting, locked wheels and dry floors.
