The major cause of the hospitalisation of children is falls

We’ve put together some tips to keep them safe:
  • Ensure your little ones are supervised at all times
  • Use a full-body (5-point) safety harness in prams, strollers, high chairs and shopping carts
  • Use sensor lights and baby-guards for stairs
  • Try non-skid rubber mats in the bath and shower areas
  • Bunk-beds should only be used by children over 9 years old
  • Make sure swings and play equipment have a soft-fall material underneath to a depth of 300mm
  • Move furniture away from windows
