‘Split Second’ campaign
The key message this National Kidsafe Day – 24 October 2017 – is that ‘child safety is no accident.’ The majority of serious injuries that can change lives in just a split second, are preventable.
A cup of hot tea or coffee left in reach of a child; backyard swimming pool gates left open; household cleaners found under the sink; handbags containing medications; a car reversing out of a driveway and accessible button batteries are some of the hazards that can change the life of a family in the blink of an eye.
