The early modern home presented other hazards such as vermin, poor sanitation and, because many domestic houses were also the place of work, the dangers of heavy-duty equipment and processing of materials. Childhood falls are recorded by several early modern writers. Falls account for the majority of non-fatal accidents while the highest numbers of deaths are due to fire.
