Prevent falls in the kitchen – a checklist

A few things you can do or add to your kitchen to reduce the risk of falling:

  • Are throw rugs/floor mats secure?
  • Can you get to regularly used items without bending down or reaching up too far?
  • Wipe up spills immediately, especially liquids and grease.
  • If you use a step stool, use one with a bar to hold onto, make sure it is sturdy.
  • Keep drawers and cabinets closed when not in use.
