‘Home Safety’ is often perceived to be only protecting a home from crime, however ‘Home Safety’ also means feeling safe inside your home from the risk of preventable accidental injuries.
Accidents within the home are largely preventable and home safety prevention strategies are evidenced through documents produced by organizations such as NICE. www.nice.org.uk These include evidence surrounding the provision of child safety equipment and there are links to all these documents and more within the member’s area of the Kid Rapt website.
Invariably, the projects that Kid Rapt works with look at ‘Home Safety’ in a holistic way. It is not just the provision of equipment that can address risks within the home, but also educating people and children and raising awareness of accidents where data is available, such as Hospital Episode Statistics.
However getting the right information is essential to providing the right advice and this ensures that any budget you have is spent on targeting actual accidental injuries rather than perceived risks. To help with this, Carol Ainge, Kid Rapt’s Managing Director, passes on all information she receives from her regular attendance at ‘Home Safety’ meetings and conferences throughout the country.
If your project employs the services of fitting teams, Kid Rapt can also assist via Alan Ainge, also a Director of Kid Rapt, with the delivery of bespoke fitter training, on site, for your choice of ‘Home Safety’ products. This is part of our customer service support and allows everyone in the team to understand the rationale behind your choices.
Further information can be found on our Child Safety Equipment Schemes page.
