Oxford Car Accident Claims

Whether you have young children or are expecting a visit from friends with small children, it is important for you to child-proof most areas of the house to ensure that they cannot seriously injure themselves. Small children are naturally inquisitive which means that they often will try to look in places, put their hands places or put things into their mouths that adults never would.

This means that you have to think really carefully about all of the hazards that your home may have so that you can avoid children being injured. The kitchen is one of the most dangerous places in the house for a small child, so this is where you should begin child-proofing.

  • Secure drawers and cupboards. Any drawers and cupboards on lower levels should be secured so that they can’t be opened easily by a child. You can put locks on drawers to stop them being opened and cupboard doors can be locked at ground level. You may later want to move up to drawers and cupboards at higher levels.
  • Put knives away. Instead of having knives on a block which can be easily accessed, you should put them away in a locked drawer or cupboard where only adults can access them. Once you have used a knife, wash it up and then put it back away.
  • Turn pan handles inwards. This is something that many parents forget to do even though it is a common cause of accidents. Having pan handles pointing outwards means they can get caught in your clothing and hurt you, let alone your children.
  • Keep floors clean and dry. Make sure that kitchen floors are kept clean and dry so that children can’t slip on them, and also so that they don’t touch anything dirty or full of bacteria.

If you have taken your child to a house, a store or anywhere else, whoever owns it has to make sure it is a safe place for them to be. Schools and colleges have the same legal duty, and so do car drivers to make sure they are not injured in a road traffic accident.
