Preventable household accidents Each year in the United States, approximately 6,000 children die and another 120,000 are seriously injured or permanently disabled due to PREVENTABLE household accidents. Baby Proofing your home and implementing safety tips given to you by Baby Safe Homes is fundamental to keeping your family safe from harm. An excellent way to get started on this important process is to get down on your hands and knees and take a good look around your house, or around the place where baby will be staying or playing. This will help you get a real sense of your child’s perspective and will therefore enable you to spot potential dangers. Ask for an expert’s opinion to make sure you don’t miss any safety hazards and that the environment your children call ‘home’, is the safest place for them to be in.
