Injury Prevention

Every 30 seconds someone visits an emergency department in Ontario due to an injury. Approximately 95% of all injuries are both predictable and preventable. By recognizing unsafe environments, conditions and behaviours, most injuries can be prevented.

There is much we can do as individuals, families and caregivers to avoid injury and reduce the burden of injury.
