Injury Matters launches the Remove Hazards campaign

Injury Matters is launching the three-month Stay On Your Feet® Remove Hazards campaign across Western Australia. Running throughout September to November, the Remove Hazards campaign encourages older adults to make their homes safer, check their eyesight, and wear safe footwear with simple changes to prevent falls and support healthy ageing.

What does the campaign have in store for you?

Older adults can look forward to a series of community events throughout the campaign, starting with the York Safe-Tea Fair, a launch event for the new Stay On Your Feet®  Healthy Foot Guide, and an Ageing Safely: Steps to safety, health and wellbeing event at the Mandurah Seniors Centre. Don’t forget you can always book a free Stay On Your Feet® community presentation with one of our Peer Educators too!  

Health professionals can expect a series of Remove Hazards themed training opportunities on offer throughout the campaign as well as the Launch of the WA Falls Report 2023.

What are other organisations doing?

It’s not just Injury Matters running falls prevention activities this campaign. Our successful Remove Hazards grant recipients and friends at the Serpentine Jarrahdale Community Resource Centre, Shire of Carnarvon, and South West Women’s Health and Information Centre will also be running some exciting Remove Hazards grant programs in the community over the next three months.
