Microsoft and Apple are two of the several giant companies that started in garages. They could have not achieved their size if they neglected garage safety. Observing garage safety may not transform your home into a large company like them but it will at least make hanging about in your garage productive and carefree.

The garage is a place where some of the most dangerous tools for children are kept. Since you will not be around in the house all the time, make sure to keep your garage safe for your children by using drawers or cabinet latches and electrical outlet covers. These prevent them from having access to dangerous tools or getting electrocuted accidentally.

You’ve probably experienced forgetting to close your garage door especially after bringing in a day’s shopping with both arms full. An intruder might sneak in and steal some of your valuable garage tools or your children might find a good playground in your garage. Set up an alarm system to alert you to close the garage door after leaving it open for a few seconds.

Store tools in specific places inaccessible to children or hang them on hooks that even you cannot reach without using a stool or a ladder. Aside from making you easily determine whether a tool was borrowed or missing, it will also prompt you to return the tools you just used on the right places.

Home safety experts in highly productive states like Utah point to the garage as the place where homeowners would store just about everything they don’t want to keep in their homes. You probably store paint and gasoline in your garage. Keep your Utah garage off limits to toddlers. If used incorrectly by children, these chemicals might set your garage on fire or worse yet burn down your entire house.

In front of your Utah garage is probably a wide driveway, which children love to stay on and play. Not that you should prohibit your children from playing in the drive but you must at least place a sign or a block that will prevent cars from immediately pulling in without checking if there are children along the way. For driveway to the garage that is slightly inclined, avoid leaving the car running or the keys in the ignition to prevent accidents.
