Drowning is one of the leading causes of death for Australian children under 5 years of age. Kidsafe’s ‘Safe Barriers Save Lives’ Backyard Pool Safety campaign calls on all pool and spa owners to sign up to Kidsafe’s pool party event on Facebook and pledge to check the safety of their pool or spa barrier on Sunday October 1, in the lead up to the warmer months.
Organised by the Women's and Children's Hospital Youth Advisory Group, the Our Generation: Youth Health Mattersconference was attended by 115 children aged 10 to 13 years in February. Our CEO Holly Fitzgerald spoke to the children about child safety and challenged them to think of ways they could influence others to make safer choices.
A recent study has found that over 80% of newborns can not achieve a good harness fit in a rearward facing car restraint. A poor fit increases the risk of a child being ejected from their restraint and/or being seriously injured in a crash.
If you are about to have a baby we highly recommend you have a chat with us about your child car restraint options! We can also demonstrate correct installation of a restraint with our new vehicle demo seat. Come in and see us today!
