    How to “kiddy proof” your house for an accident free environment


    When you have children you don’t always realise how many potential hazards there are in the house. From electrical items to corners of worktops everywhere you look could have the possibility to harm you and your children. So how do you kiddy proof your house? Here at Accident Advice helpline we give you some advice on how to make your home an accident free environment.

    Electrical

    This is a major potential hazard in the home as there are so many electrical appliances in the home. However, there are plenty of things you can do to create an accident free environment, including the securing of trailing wires and cables.

    Appliances

    Make sure your appliances are fully working. You don’t want a faulty appliance causing you or your children harm. Sadly, you don’t always know when an appliance is faulty and this can cause problems. Find out how Accident Advice helpline can help you raise a faulty product claim .

    Sharp edges and corners should be protected to create an accident free environment

    With children running around the last thing you want them to do is run straight into a corner or sharp edge and harm themselves. Any hard or sharp corners which are quite prominent including worktops can be make softer with rubber or foam to make any impacts less painful. This is great to protect little heads from getting cut or hurt.

    Slips, trips, and falls

    Perhaps the most common accidents in the home are slips, trips, and falls. These can be caused by many things including toys left lying about, flooring not secured properly or loose stair rails. Most can be prevented through regular maintenance and general checks of the house to ensure it is tidy and in good condition.
