In brief: Which precautions?

There are numerous home safety precautions that can be taken.
From pool safety to covering outlets to corner pads. Each of these has a different "return". Some, like padding corners on a table, do not prevent death. Others, like putting four walls and self-locking gates around a pool, save hundreds if not thousands of preventable deaths a year.
