Our home safety and security pros can help you audit your electrical risk profile, and can help you choose the best products to truly baby-proof your home. Electrical security devices include tamper resistant receptacles, outlet caps, plate slide covers, adapter and plug covers, child-proof power strips, child proof extension cords, duct cord covers, cord shorteners, and plug locks.
Chemical hazards are posed by detergents, household cleaning products, pesticides, polishes, solvents, glues and a virtually endless list of products labelled “keep out of reach of children”. Prevent a poisoning emergency by keeping chemical products in tamper-proof locked cabinets and frequently used household cleaning products in child-proof bottles (so that if a bottle is accidentally left within grasp, your child will not be able to ingest its contents)
Medicinal hazards are very similar (and often overlap with) chemical hazards. Ingesting prescription drugs could be fatal for children. It is imperative that medicines, including tablets, capsules, syrups, drops, ointments and powders be kept under lock and key in a tamper-proof cabinet. Insist on having medicine provided to you in child-proof containers to add an additional level of safety.
It should go without saying that matches, lighters and other sources of ignition should be kept out of reach of children. In addition, your home should be fitted with smoke detectors and an audible alarm that can alert you to a fire before its too late. If you use natural gas as a fuel then a gas leakage detector should also be connected to your alarm system.
Children are the most at risk of being run over – especially in poor visibility situations. Avoid a trajegy by fitting our “fun certified” safety reflectors on your child’s jacket, bike, stroller, backpack, bag, walkers and just about anything else you can think of. Browse our Spy Store for more information.
No parent in their right mind should let their child be a passenger in a vehicle that is not equipped with a certified car seat. Browse our range of vehicle safety products for kids of all ages, for example, harnesses, seat vests, booster seats, tethers, cumberbands, chest clips, tummy protectors, sun canopies and impact protectors.
Although we don’t offer any products specifically designed to protect your little one from hazards associated with heavy objects falling on them, we couldn’t leave such an important hazard off our list. Cabinets, appliances, furniture and other heavy objects should be securely fastened, properly fitted and balanced and tested for any movement when pulled or pushed from a child’s level.
