Put child deterrent latches on drawers and cabinets, and be sure to use socket covers to prevent
random objects being put in electric plugs. Be certain that all toxins, cleaning materials, sharp
items and any other unsafe product is stored up high and/or locked up.
Install safety gates in doorways to your kitchen space and bathroom. Alternately, just keep the
restroom door closed for your own convenience so that you won't have to remove or climb over
the security gate several times a day. Guests will even appreciate this.
Security gates on the level could be the pressure mounted kind. Safety gates guarding stairwells
ought to be secured using hardware to ensure they will stay in place.

fencing around it to avoid accidental burns.
Gates needs to also be put up around any kind of swimming pool - whether above-ground or inground. Wading pools should be emptied between uses. Drowning is a major cause for child
fatality and should be carefully guarded against.

edge or corner can easily lead to injuries requiring stitches. Invest in some good bumpers to cover

resistant packaging and keep them up high and locked away.

these screens throughout your home.
