Neue E-Book für Eltern: Sicher ins Leben starten – Ratgeber „Kindersicherheit“
Feel safe at home

85 percent of all serious injuries that happen to kids under two years old happen at home. The e-book has tips on how to generally reduce home injuries for kids: install gates at the staircases, apply child safe devices at the power sockets and put decorations and plants out of reach. It is also important to apply safety measures in your garden. For example, only a few centimeters of water can be a threat for a little child life. It is crucial to secure all waterways and ponds with a fence.

Danger in harmful substances

Many dangers for kids are easy to detect. We can remove sharp scissors and knifes and detect objects that can fire easily, however it might be difficult to identify dangerous chemicals or harmful substances as they are invisible and difficult to be noticed by a human eye. For example, some objects at home can contain plasticizers or dyes such as aniline that are harmful to health. They can cause serious skin irritations. The e-book contains information about harmful substances in children’s clothes and provides helpful tips concerning chemicals in toys and care products. Whenever possible parent should always buy certified, non-toxic cloth, products from natural cosmetic manufacturers and inspected toys.
