Why Childproofing is so important?
According to the SAFEKIDS organisation in India, preventable injuries kill more than 60,000 children each year, leaving many more disabled. Whereas all over the world over two million children, ages 0 to 5 years old, are treated in the Emergency Room every year for accidents that happen inside the home.
According to the study conducted by UK’s THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF PREVENTION OF ACCIDENTS, the most severe injuries mainly occur due to falls, fires, scalds, Glass-related accidents, poisoning, suffocating and choking or drowning. Most of these accidents are preventable through increased awareness, improvements in the home environment with optimum utilization of Childproofing.
