Accident prevention resources

  • Accidents and child development
    Offers more than safety advice, it explores how a child’s physical, emotional and intellectual development are linked to the risk of them having a serious accident. (guide – Child Accident Prevention Trust, 2012)
  • Blue dog parent guide and CD
    Owning a dog has benefits for humans, including child development, but we must recognise potential hazards and try to minimise the risks of children and animals living together. (CD and booklet – Blue Dog Trust, 2007)
  • Drunkbuster impairment goggles
    Also known as beer goggles, drunk goggles or drunk glasses, these simulate the effects of being drunk including confusion, visual distortion, slowed reaction time and lack of coordination. (teaching aid – fpa, 2013)
  • Fancy a cuppa?
    Kit to help prevent hot drink scalds in babies and young children. Includes DVD, information cards and flyers. (DVD resource pack – Child Accident Prevention Trust)
  • Look who’s falling
    Scenarios about how young children can fall from windows, stairs and high chairs, with footage from a child’s eye view. Shows how easily accidents happen and how they can be prevented. (DVD pack – Child Accident Prevention Trust, 2013)
  • Medicine cabinet… or candy box?
    Created to look like a medicine cabinet, this 3D display opens to reveal ‘shelves’ with permanently sealed, lookalike medicines and sweets. (teaching model – Health Edco, 2006 and 2009)
  • Splat! the helmet safety game
    Shows kids why a helmet is needed when they cycle or skateboard. Put an egg inside two models of a person’s head – one protected by a helmet – and drop them on a mat to see how much difference protective gear makes. (game – Health Edco, 2011)

    Looks at three scenarios, a scald from spilling a hot drink, a contact burn from an oven hob and a bath water scald from a child falling or climbing into a hot bath. (DVD pack – Child Accident Prevention Trust)
  • Toxic tales
    DVD for parents about the risks of accidental poisoning. Covers three of the most common and serious scenarios – medicine and pills, household cleaning products and carbon monoxide. (DVD – Child Accident Prevention Trust, 2011)
