No. When products are used correctly, they can be wonderful aids to help reduce hazards and injury around the home. They are never a replacement for proper adult supervision. No child should ever be left unattended in any potentially hazardous situation or room such as kitchen, bathroom, near running water, unlocked windows and so forth. It is the responsibility of the parents and carers to maintain the safety of their child and prevent access to hazards within the home or when out and about. It is important to remember that it is every parents’ responsibility to ensure their child’s safety. And remember, babies and toddlers must not be left in the care of other children.
Safety products should all be regularly checked for damage, wear and anything which could lower the efficiency of the product.
