Safety Guidelines for Children Returning to School | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

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.
  • Wear the right helmet for sports.  CPSC’s publication “Which Helmet for Which Activity” provides useful information.
  • 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.
