Don’t take a chance with your safety
Your home is the place where accidents are most likely to happen
More people are injured in their own homes than anywhere else – around 3 million people each year need hospital treatment after an accident at home.
Many accidents result from everyday activities such as children playing, DIY, or preparing food, with some leading to serious injury or even death.
The biggest single cause of accidents is human error, but with common sense and awareness of where dangers are, many accidents can be prevented.
At St Leger Homes, we try to make sure that council properties are as safe as possible. But please remember that you are responsible for your own safety and for anyone living with you or visiting you.
If you spot something in or around your home which might be, or is likely to become a safety hazard, please report it to your local St Leger office
Please report repairs to our Technical Support Service
