Through her hard work and dedication, we are proud to say that Fred is the first fully compliant safety range in the UK.
Is baby proofing important?
According to ROSPA, every week at least one child under-5 is killed in an accident and more than 75% of these will do so in the home. At least half of all under-5?s will attend A&E this year because of an accident. Every week 60 under-5?s are hospitalised as a result of a burn or scald and over 100 are hospitalised for accidental poisoning. Almost all of these accidents are preventable.
At Fred, we are passionate about helping every family to baby proof their home easily and quickly to help prevent these terrible accidents from happening. We believe it is one of the most important things you can do as a parent because it helps to safeguard your children and give you peace of mind that they are protected against accidents and injuries at home.
When/where should I start baby proofing?
Ideally, you need to baby proof your home before your little one starts crawling or walking, because once they start moving, they won?t stop! Very quickly you will begin to realise how dangerous your home is, we recommend you start baby proofing at around 6 months so you are ready in plenty of time for baby to start crawling.
It can be daunting to look at your whole house and try to work out what you need to baby proof, so we recommend working your way through the house room by room.
Get down to your toddlers level by crawling around on your hands and knees (yes really!) so that you can identify the dangers and then make a list of everything you need to move or safeguard in that room before moving on to the next.
What safety standards are there for home safety products?
There are a number of relevant safety standards including; EN1930 published in 2011 for safety barriers including stair gates, EN16948 for locks and latches, published in August 2017 which governs all consumer fitted child resistant drawer and cupboard locking devices. Also EN16554 for door stoppers, published in 2014 for devices to prevent fingers being trapped in doors.
Relevant Fred products meet these regulations and the entire range is tested to the relevant clauses of EN71 Series, the toy standard, and Fred is a founding member of GACS, an organisation working towards higher standards of safety.
We always design our products to promote best practice in our industry and are constantly fighting to raise awareness of the potential hazards of using poor quality alternatives which can end up posing more of a risk than the original danger they were designed to protect against.
