Accidents to Children
Customer News, News
Accidents to children are a significant health issue, being a major cause of preventable death, serious injury and long-term disability across the UK.
Under-5s are particularly at risk of being injured in home accidents, with falls accounting for the majority of non-fatal accidents and threats to breathing such as suffocation, strangulation and choking causing the highest number of deaths.
Most home accidents are preventable through increased awareness, improvements in the home environment and greater product safety.
