What Are You Doing for National Safety Month?


by Charlene 24 Jun 2014

June is National Safety Month! So, for what's left of this month, focus on home safety. And why not keep this in mind throughout the entire year? If you're looking for ways to participate in National Safety Month, then look no further than your own home. That's the perfect place to start.


Ready to get started? Here's how to do it:


Upgrade to Cordless Window Coverings

If you can, upgrade your current window coverings to cordless options. Those dangling window covering cords are dangerous for children and pets. Create a safer home instantly with cordless blinds or shades. It's estimated that one child dies every month from a window covering cord accident. These are 100% preventable. And one way to prevent these horrific accidents is by going cordless and eliminating the threat altogether.


Get Free Cord Cleats for Corded Window Coverings

Realistically, not everyone can upgrade to cordless window coverings. Perhaps you're renting. Or maybe it's just not in the budget right now. That's OK! You can still prevent window covering cord accidents, and you don't have to pay a cent. Here at Select Blinds, we have a free cord cleat program for everyone with corded window coverings. A cord cleat is a little part that is secured to the wall. Then you just have to wrap any excess cord around it, keeping it out of the hands of children. Get your free cord cleats here: http://www.selectblinds.com/safe-kids.html

 

Check Your Furniture Placement

When you arranged your furniture, you might have focused on look and feel of the placement. While that's important, it's also important to consider potential threats. For example, keep all beds, cribs, couches, and chairs away from windows. Not only can they climb on the furniture to reach cords, but they can push on screens and fall. Also be mindful of bookshelves and coffee tables. Sometimes climbing on furniture is just too tempting for children, so it's up to you to make sure they're safe.

 

Take Extra Precautions Near the Pool


It's warm outside and the pool is inviting for all ages. If your pool is open, consider getting a fence around it or some sort of barrier. You can even put a cover over the pool that is designed to hold weight and not rip or drop under the water. This will ensure your child's safety if she does happen to get out to the pool and try to get in. If your child is swimming, stay diligent and keep watching them. It only takes a second for something to happen. Life jackets are also a great idea.


Once you've done these, take a moment to brainstorm what else you can do this month to make sure your home is safe for your entire family. Sometimes the smallest safety measures make the biggest difference.
