Child Safety Week

A new safety checklist has been created to help parents and carers of children aged 0-4 identify hazards in their home.

South Gloucestershire Council has launched the checklist as part of Child Safety Week from 5-11 June.

According to figures from the UK Health Security Agency, 80% of accidents to children under 5 happen at home.

Child Safety Week is run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust and the theme this year is ‘safety made simple’.

The Trust’s website has a number of free safety resources parents and health professionals can download offering tips on how to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries including falls and burns.
