Virginia Beach, VA, Jan. 14, 2014 — DuPont Sustainable Solutions has released a new training program emphasizing the importance for employees to protect themselves and their loved ones at home.

Take Safety Home shows that employees are three times more likely to get hurt off the job than on it and 11 times more likely to die from a non-work related injury than a job-related one.

The program adapts standard workplace safety practices to a home setting, covering the use of personal protective equipment; chemical handling and storage; the safe operation of power tools; fire prevention and management; back safety; and slips, trips and falls.

Take Safety Home stresses that safety doesn’t end with the work day. Encouraging employees to be equally vigilant at home, the program identifies household activities that require safety precautions, such as mowing the lawn, doing repair work, mixing chemicals, gardening and housekeeping.

The program covers the importance of eye, hearing, and hand protection, along with the identification of common household chemicals that can be corrosive or flammable. Take Safety Home offers various safety do’s and don’ts for working with power tools, preventing fires and lifting objects. This course is available as a DVD, streaming video and coming soon as an interactive, customizable online training course.
