Mighton’s top ten window safety tips

Each year in the UK, over 4,000 children are hurt as a result of falling from windows, 15-20 are killed and over 80% are under the age of four (Source: Home Safety Facts and Figures, RoSPA). Mighton Products have been at the forefront of developing products to address this important issue. Here are our top tips for window safety;

1. Supervise your children as they play

2. Teach your children not to play near windows

3. Close and lock your windows when children are around

4. Only open windows that children cannot reach or are secured with compliant locks

5. Keep beds, furniture, and anything a child can climb on away from windows

6. Keep window treatments (blinds, cords, drapes, etc.) away from cots, playpens and out of children’s reach

7. Repair broken windows or non-working parts as soon as possible

8. Open windows from the top, not from the bottom

9. Install child safety devices that comply with ASTM F2090-2008 and 2010 standards

10. Never leave young children unattended near open windows
