What you need to do now to make your home safer for your family
Make sure your child's toys are age appropriate
Boxell says parents can help ensure their child’s safety by following the S.A.F.E. acronym. “By following these guidelines, you can be pretty certain that you’ve made a reasonable choice for your child.”
See products around your home through the eyes of your child and anticipate how a child might use it differently.
Ask yourself if the products you purchase are appropriate for your child.
Find products that feature safety standard seals such as Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM International) when choosing an item for your home.
Educate yourself on products that have been recalled and contact Health Canada.
