Keeping the kids safe outside and inside the home

Nov 03, 2010

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.

Kidsafe always do a great job in advocating preventable injuries for kids and you can find loads of info here http://www.kidsafensw.org/homesafety/home_fittings.htm

What other tips do you have to keep your kids safe when it comes to furniture?
