How can we help to protect children?

If you have children visiting or living in your home, that is the first place to start. You can help to ensure a safe environment for children in your home:
Ensure that all electrical wiring and appliances are safe and that all plug sockets are properly covered.
Fence off any bodies of water on your property such as swimming pools and fish ponds, and keep children away from these areas unless accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Keep baths and buckets of water empty or out of reach of children unless being used under strict adult supervision.
Never leave fires or hot liquids unattended, no matter for how short a period of time.
Keep all sharp objects out of reach.
Keep all substances such as chemical solvents, paints, insecticides, alcohol, medicines, cosmetic products and even vitamins out of reach.
Install safety-glass on large glass doors or large, low windows and use stickers to ensure that the glass can be clearly seen.
Have a list of emergency numbers at hand next to each telephone or saved into each cell phone in the house.
