Child safety is essential for children, both inside and outside the house. Every year, there are many accidents in which children get hurt. Small mistakes can have big consequences, especially when it comes to kids. To increase child safety is therefore very important, not only at home but also in primary schools and child day care centers. Arte Viva is supplier of safety solutions for babies and children.
Safety for babies and children
When babies start crawling and exploring, the house must be as safe as possible. At this stage of life, kids are still very vulnerable and every danger must be avoided at all times. Parents should check all dangerous objects and create a safe child environment in the house.
Tables have sharp corners that children can easily bump against. When the child's first steps are taken, corner protectors become more important. Corners of walls can also have sharp edges. Shield these sharp corners to prevent injuries to children. Prevention is better than cure.
In the next stage of life, child safety is just as important. When a child is in the so-called life stage of “school child” , the chances of him or her being injured from bumps or falls increase. The children play outside more often, where the risk of hurting themselves increases. The corners of walls are dangerous for kids who are playing. In case of a fall, the wall can cause an awful injury. Next to bumping and falling injuries, injuries caused by finger entrapment are the most common accident that occur to children. Every year, there are many hospital visits due to kids getting their fingers pinched in between doors and door frames, potentially resulting in trauma for the rest of their lives. Finger entrapment is simple to prevent by installing door finger guards or door hinge shields to protect fingers.
Safety in schools and kindergartens
In places where many children are together, such as in primary school and kindergartens, child safety cannot be neglected. Still every year, many accidents frequently occur that can simply be avoided, such as finger entrapment in doors. Primary schools and kindergartens need to create a child safe and carefree environment for children, teachers and parents.
The kindergarten is an exciting experience for many children, but at a young age, they also find it scary to be without their parents. For both the parents and the kids, the environment must be as positive and as safe as possible. Young children fall easily, so table corners, wall edges and window sills can cause injuries to them. Corner protectors prevent bump and fall injuries to children.
Safety in primary schools must also be ensured as much as possible. In primary school, there are many children that play at the same time, raising the potential for an accident to occur. Finger protection on both the hinge side and the handle side of the door can prevent finger entrapment. Finger protectors are mostly used in schools and child day care centers, but the products are also suitable for hospitals and retirement homes.
