It’s Child Safety Week 2022 and now that it’s the start of summer, children will be playing outside more and doing what children do best: messing around. So, read on as 1001 tell you how to get blood out of carpets.

With the information below, the risks of cuts and scrapes can be reduced, which keeps our children safe and our carpets blood free!


What is Child Safety Week?

This week is run by Child Accident Prevention Trust to build awareness of the risks that can cause children to have accidents so that they can be prevented. During this week, events are held by organisations such as schools and hospitals to promote safety messages in a memorable and engaging way.

Whilst not every accident can be foreseen, there are some things you can do to keep your children safe at home and in the garden:

  • Use stair gates for early years
  • Secure all heavy furnishings to the walls
  • Be careful how you position furnishings, to avoid children climbing
  • Cover electrical outlets that are not in use
  • Install cabinet locks
  • Tie back cords on blinds
  • Use corner cushions on sharp corners
  • Install and maintain smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms
  • Never leave a child alone and on top of furnishings such as beds, sofas, changing tables
  • Make sure gates and fences are safe and secure
  • Remove dangerous plants
  • Place plant foods and chemical solutions into a cupboard and lock it
  • Stick to softer surfaces such as grass and avoid hard patios
  • Put a fence or mesh around ponds/water features in your garden
  • If you have the space, create an area outside that’s just for them

Even when you follow the points above, scrapes, bumps and bruises can still happen, so make sure you’re always equipped with a first aid kit and seek professional help for more serious accidents.
