Injury Prevention & Safety

Information for Families

Safe Kids Week- June 3 - 9, 2024 What is #safeforyourkids?

Safe Kids Week (SKW) is a national campaign created by Parachute aimed to bring awareness to unintentional injuries to children. This year, AHS is supporting Safe Kids Week by sharing information on the 2024 theme, Consumer Product Safety. The term “consumer products” encompass a large number of products in Canada. This topic is important because many parents/caregiver are not aware that not all items like toys are tested for safety. Here are some items to keep in mind:

  • Not all products sold in Canada have been tested for safety [https://recalls-rappels.canada.ca/en].
  • Not all products sold in Canada have standards or regulations they must meet.
  • Choose age-appropriate toys and always check labels for safety warnings.
  • Check where your child will be playing: look for tripping hazards, unsafe toys, loose cables, wet floors or things that may have been dropped.

Stay engaged and continue to learn what is #safeforyour\kids
