Child Safety

Ensuring child safety is critical to help reduce the risk of injury and death for infants, children and adolescents.

The types of risk vary based on a child or adolescents age group.

  • Infants and young children are at greater risk of accidental asphyxia deaths, which often result from unsafe sleeping environments and parents co-sleeping with their children. Sadly, they are also at greater risk of homicide by abuse and neglect.
  • Adolescents are at greater risk of motor vehicle accidents, suicide, and drug overdoses.
  • All age groups are at risk of drowning, especially children between ages one and four.
