O verão está bem firme e nos dias quentes é tentador abrir as janelas para que o ar possa circular. Se houver crianças em casa, tome algumas precauções para mantê-las seguras mesmo com as janelas abertas. Todos os anos as quedas são a causa principal de lesões em crianças, e as quedas de janela são particularmente sérias para crianças pequenas. A boa notícia é que quedas de janela podem ser prevenidas na sua casa ou apartamento.

  • Mantenha camas, móveis e qualquer objeto que uma criança possa subir longe das janelas.
  • Quando for possível, abra janelas corrediças de cima para baixo, não de baixo para cima.
  • Tranque janelas e portas que estiverem apenas encostadas.
  • Certifique-se que as crianças estejam sempre supervisadas.
  • Instale grades de segurança de montagem fácil. Telas para insetos não protegem contra quedas. Essas grades podem ser compradas em quase qualquer loja de ferragens.
