Home Safety campaign materials

03/10/2006

The European Child Safety Alliance is in the process of finalising a series of home safety fact sheets which will be made available very shortly online.

The fact sheets are part of the home safety campaign which the Alliance is undertaking throughout Europe in partnership with its member countries. The aim of this campaign is to increase awareness of the injuries occurring to children in the home and the proven strategies that can be used to prevent these injuries.

The Alliance defines home injuries as those occurring in or around the home, including the garden, garage and driveway, and excluding the sidewalk, street or community playground. The fact sheets which will soon be online are on the following injury areas:

  • Child Burns and Scalds
  • Child Choking, Strangulation and Suffocation
  • Child Falls
  • Child Homicide
  • Child Poisoning
  • Child Suicide
  • Child Water Safety

To complement the factsheets a series of parent tipsheets is also being prepared and will be online by the beginning of November. In addition, the Alliance is finalising a 'Guide to Potentially Dangerous Products for Children' which will be made available on-line by the end of the year.
