Keep our family safe is of the utmost importance. Here are some prevention tips and solutions to keep things safe around the house.

Never allow children to climb or play on furniture. Permanently affixing your furniture to the wall will significantly reduce, but not eliminate the risk of tip-over. Consult a professional building materials expert on which fixing device will be suitable for the walls in your home.

  • -Anchor furniture to the wall or the floor.
  • -Place TVs on sturdy, low bases.
  • -Or, anchor the furniture and the TV on top of it, and push the TV as far back on top of the furniture as possible.
  • -Keep remote controls, toys, and other items that might be attractive to children off TV stands or furniture.
  • -Keep TV and/or cable cords out of reach of children.
  • -Make sure freestanding kitchen ranges and stoves are installed with anti-tip brackets.
  • -Supervise children in rooms where these safety tips have not been followed
