The U.S. Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reminds parents to take precautions for keeping their children safe as they return to school. In a recent press release, CPSC advocates that parents prepare to keep their children in the classroom instead of the hospital emergency room.
Some specific guidelines include:
Remove drawstrings from children’s outer clothing.
Practice playground safety. CPSC’s Handbook for Public Playground Safety offers further guidelines.
Make certain that soccer goals are securely anchored when in use, never allow children to climb on them and anchor them securely when not in use.
Only buy art suplies that contain the statement, “CONFORMS to ASTM D-4236.”
Children frequently act without thinking first, particularly in a playground or school setting. Parents need to constantly emphasize “Safety First” to their children.
Maryland recently updated its immunization requirements for school age children and college students.
