Injury prevention

Supporting Information

1.

Many serious injuries can be prevented if parents and other caregivers supervise children carefully and keep their environment safe.

Why it is important - All key messages - First aid advice - Resources

Young children, especially as they begin to move around on their own – and particularly between 12 months and 4 years old – are at high risk of injuries in and near the home. Almost all these injuries can be prevented. Prevention requires supervising children carefully and keeping them away from dangers, such as cooking fires, water sources, places where they can fall, roads, and items that can poison, choke or hurt them.
