Safety Tips For Residential Garage Doors. It’s important to be aware of safety precautions before opening your garage door. The first step, is to make sure the area around the door and driveway are clear of objects, people and pets. This will help avoid injury from a car backing out, or someone stepping forward into the path of an open door. If you have children in your home then it’s also important that they know how to use their safety devices appropriately. It can be difficult for them to reach these so parents should take time to teach their kids how to open the door in case they need to. Garage doors can also pose safety risks if they are not installed correctly. So homeowners should always check with their professional installer about installation and information.
