Checklist: Child safety at home

A beautiful interior does not imply the house is safe for children. Sharp edges and corners, slippery floors, slamming doors, open windows, and many more situations in your home can be dangerous for children. For children, it is crucial that the environment where they grow up is as safe as possible. A child-safe home is a home where the chance of child injury is minimized. Parents and caretakers need to supervise and take away dangers for younger children. When they grow older they learn to deal with risks and become more independent, so parents can give them more responsibilities and leave their child alone for short periods. 

But how do you create child safety at home? There are various child safety products that contribute to a child-friendly, and mainly child-safe, environment. For example, think of corner protectors that protect sharp edges and corners or door finger guards that prevent finger entrapment. These child safety solutions create a safer environment both inside and outside the house. There is always a chance that a child gets hurt while playing, therefore it is important that the chance of accidents is minimized.
