Window Safety Tips to Avoid Arizona Child Injuries

By Breyer Law Offices on June 4, 2013

Spring and summer are the perfect times to open your windows. As the temperature warms up throughout Arizona, you’ll want to open more windows in your home. According to the National Safety Council (NSC) there are several things you can do to protect your children and let the breeze blow through your home throughout the entire season.

  • Move your furniture away from the windows. Children like to climb on furniture and may use it to gain access to open windows, where they may fall.
  • Do not fall victim to the “screen” myth. Many parents believe that if they open a window but leave the screen closed that their children will be safe. However, screens will buckle under the weight of a child and are not the solution for protecting your kids.
  • Ensure that you select a window guard that adheres to the minimum requirements for window safety of the ASTM F2090. These types of guards will have a quick release for emergency situations but will not be able to open in case of an accidental situation.
  • Never allow your children to play around open windows and teach them about the dangers that windows can pose.
