Basic Home Safety – A Checklist
Adapted from Caring for Kids
Here are some important things to do to help prevent the most common childhood injuries in every part of your home:

  • Put carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home.
  • Put smoke detectors on every level of your home, including near sleeping areas.
  • Check monthly to be sure they are working.
    Change batteries twice each year, when you change the clocks in the spring and fall.
  • Keep cleaning supplies (like laundry detergent and dish detergent) safely out of sight, out of reach and away from food.
  • Make sure space heaters are cool-to-the-touch models, have an automatic shut-off, and are kept away from fabrics such as bedding and curtains.
  • Put safety covers on all electrical outlets that are not in use.
  • Safety gates prevent your baby from falling down stairways or entering rooms you want him to stay away from, like a busy kitchen.
