Home is generally considered the safest place for children, but studies have shown that unintentional injuries at home cause a significant number of deaths. Here are some recommendations to keep your child safe from danger at home;

  • All potentially poisonous products - detergents, pesticides, bug sprays, cleaning products - should be stored in a cabinet out of reach and under lock. 
  • Keep all medications away from their reach also.
  • Keep knives and other sharp objects - peelers, graters, mixers and food processor blades - in latched drawers or high cabinets. Similarly breakable crockery such as glassware and china should be kept out of your little ones reach.
  • To prevent burn, be wary of where you leave hot drinks. Don't cook on a stove while holding your child. Teach the older children to be cautious about hot things and fire.
  • Use a properly designed car seat, preferably in the middle of the back seat. Do not let your child sit in the front seat
  • For electrical safety, use outlets that have a sliding safety latch. Block any unused electrical point and keep blow-blenders, toasters, dryers, and other electrical appliances unplugged where possible.
