Kidsafe day 2014
20 Oct 2014

25th October 2014 is National Kidsafe day.

Lots of kids are injured every day. Kids, especially younger ones, do tend to get excited, run around, don’t look where they are going, don’t think before they do something, and don’t recognise danger - so having a bump or a bruise, a graze or a cut is part of every kid’s life.

But, sometimes a cuddle and a plaster don’t fix the hurt. Sometimes accidents are much more serious.

We have a whole section called Your safety. In it you can read about ways to keep you safe from fire, at the beach, from pets, if you live on a farm and other times when you could be in danger.

Most accidents to kids happen at home and many accidents could be avoided if you and your family work together to make your home a safer place.

Look at our topic Safety from fire and use the checklist to find out how safe is your home.

Check the list on the Kidsafe site:

Help keep you and your family safe by checking through this list with mum, dad or whoever cares for you. Everyone can help to keep kids safe, especially other kids like you.
