Springfree™ Trampoline has been working tirelessly for the past 6 years make parents aware of the dangers of traditional spring-based trampolines in a bid to keep our little treasures safe.
But it’s also just as important to keep them safe inside the home. The QLD government has today released a great DVD to let parents know about the potential dangers of furniture.
The DVD called “Climb, Tumble, fall – Steps to Furniture Safety” can be viewed here www.fairtrading.qld.gov.au
They also provide some great tips for parents:
- Large TV’s should be fastened to a wall or placed far enough back on the furniture to ensure they’re out of reach to small children
- Keep electrical cords out of child’s reach
- Discourage children from climbing, jumping (leave this to the Springfree™ Trampoline;) or playing on furniture
- Place items of interest – such as bottles and toys – within easy reach to discourage climbing.
