National Window Safety Week Starts April 7

If you have a little one in the house, you might sometimes feel like keeping them from driving you crazy is enough of a safety precaution.

However, taking the proper measures to ensure their safety around your windows is one of the best ways to keep your kids safe. According to the Center for Injury Research, More than 5,000 children are treated in hospitals every year for window-related accidents or falls.

Although Window Safety Week is held annually in April, window safety education should continue year-round, so that parents and children alike are able to prevent severe accidents or injuries.

To raise awareness of window safety precautions this year, the National Safety Council has released a comprehensive checklist, which includes tips such as:

  • Keep windows closed and locked when not in use
  • Move furniture away from windows to remove access
  • Install safety guards if necessary
  • Develop an emergency fire exit strategy

Access the full checklist here, and stay tuned to Lee & Cates Glass on Facebook and Twitter from April 7-12, as we promote National Window Safety Week.
