Unfortunately homes are also the most common place for child injury, accounting for 60% of all unintentional injuries in children aged 0-4. Homes are designed for adults and pose a number of risks for children. Identifying and addressing hazards in and around the house, making small changes, buying more child friendly products and providing effective adult supervision can dramatically reduce the risk of unintentional injury to young children.
