In addition to ensuring that individual items are safe, it’s important to take an overall approach to safety in your child’s room.
The safety precautions that you take will depend upon the age of your children and your judgement of how sensible they are. Bear in mind that the only thing you can predict about children is they’re unpredictable.
Below are safety tips you can use to ensure your children’s room are safe;
- Floors should be non-slip and not too hard underfoot.
- Avoid placing floor or table lamps where they could get in the way of games, consoles and gadgets and be knocked over.
- Use the current wattage of bulb in lamps and ensure that there are no trailing flexes.
- Make sure shelves are firmly fixed to the wall. Children will inevitably climb up them when trying to reach something.
- Fasten any heavy, free-standing furniture that could be pulled over securely to the wall or floor.
- Check electrical items regularly for fraying wires or other obvious faults and never overload a plug socket.
- If the room is above the ground floor, ensure that windows can’t be opened far enough to climb out of ( though you should be able to exit them easily in an emergency) and don’t put anything under the windows that can be climbed upon.
- Any glass at low level (in doors for example) should be safety glass or, at least, covered with shatter-resistant film.
