Some examples of types of accidents or illnesses that can occur in a social setting are these:
Chemical- potentially hazardous chemical exposure
Psychological - these are factors or situations encountered either in the home or at work that create or increase stress, emotional strain and any other interpersonal problems.
Physical - these are agents within the work or home environment that can cause tissue trauma for example radiation, lasers, noise, electricity, extreme temperatures, violence not all of these would be applicable to the home environment.
Illnesses can occur in a social setting easily through eating foods that can be contaminated. Most cases of food poisoning are due to common bacteria such as Staphylococcus or Escherichia coli
Also through close contact one could be infected with the flu or other airborne viruses.
