Window safety

One child under five is admitted to hospital every day after falling from an open window, or balcony. Pre-school children are particularly at risk as not only do they not sense the danger but they are very curious and sometimes parents or carers may not even be aware of what they are capable of.

  • Make sure that children cannot reach windows, and that they are kept locked
  • If opening a window, make sure children are supervised
  • Don't keep furniture near windows that could be climbed upon
