Description:Caption:
Here we see a father organizing his garage contents, while two of his children entertained themselves with some of the playthings stored inside.

Keeping the garage neat and clean greatly reduces the existence of safety hazards that lie within, including slippery oil residue on the floor, old containers leaking toxic materials such as pesticides and caustic chemicals, poorly-stacked contents that could easily be knocked over, and hidden structural damages to the garage itself. When using scooters or bicycles, the children would need to be equipped with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including kneepads, helmets and wrist-guards, as well as sunscreen applied to exposed skin.
Additional Information:
The father is primarily concerned with those garage-kept items he has stored on the interior shelving, and the placement of more toxic materials on the upper shelves, out of the reach of any children.

It is also important to note that proper handwashing is a must after working in any outdoor environment, thereby, removing contaminants from the skin surface, and from beneath the fingernails, including viruses such as H1N1.
