kids and domestic risks


Every part of the house can become a trap for the children. Every part every object which seems to us without danger, it can be for our children.

Some common sense and of attention will allow each to live the house safely !

I quote you the main dangerous in our house:

Burns :

  • The Handles of pans
  • Stoves
  • Cooker and door of oven
  • Trendy iron
  • Too warm warm water
  • Radiator
  • Dangerous products

The risks of the do-it-yourself :

  • Scales and unstable stepladders
  • Trendy tools: drill, saw...
  • Dangerous or toxic products - including vapors
  • Glues
  • Small parts risking to be swallowed by the smallest
  • Heavy or cutting tools

Falls :

  • Slippery or wet ground
  • Carpets
  • Staircase, banisters, access of the dangerous places
  • Window opened or being able to be opened by the young children
  • Fall of the dining table or the bed of the parents

Electrocutions :

  • Grips not secured (the corresponding grips are in eclipse)
  • Multigrips and visible and accessible extension leads
  • Electric object connected in the bathroom: iron and hairdryer (by playing a child can plunge them into the water)
  • Bare or used threads

Toxicity :

  • Medicines
