Tragically, up to two children die every year from furniture or TVs toppling over.
Toppling furniture and TVs also cause hundreds of serious injuries each year. Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. Making sure your home is safe for children could prevent a serious accident.
Small children are adventurous, climbing on furniture, such as freestanding bookcases, drawers, wardrobes and side boards. If the furniture is unstable or not secured, the child’s weight can cause it or items placed on top of the furniture, like TVs, to topple over.
Don’t wait until it’s too late.
You can take steps to prevent unstable furniture and TVs from toppling over and crushing a child. Secure furniture and TVs using furniture straps, angle braces or anchors screwed into walls.
These devices are easy to install. If they are supplied with furniture or TVs, make sure you use them. They can also be purchased from your local hardware store or furniture supplier.
You can also use child-resistant locks on furniture drawers to stop young children from using drawers to climb up like a flight of stairs.
If you’re renting a home, talk to your landlord or agent to get permission to install a furniture strap, angle brace or anchor to the wall. Explain why you want to install the device and assure them that if any damage is caused by the installation, you will repair it when the tenancy ends. Make sure you get the landlord or agent’s approval in writing.Watch a safety video at productsafety.gov.au/topplingfurniture to find out how you can keep your children safe.
The Shire of Temora offers all the benefits of country living with a comprehensive range of quality affordable services.
Temora is situated approximately 80 km north of Wagga Wagga in the South West (Riverina) of New South Wales. Canberra is two hours drive to the east, with Griffith a 1.5 hour drive to the west.
Temora has a huge advantage as it is centrally located between the cities of Sydney and Melbourne, as well as being situated within South West Slopes/Riverina area, making it an ideal base from which to visit the region.
Temora Shire includes the town of Temora, and villages of Ariah Park and Springdale, but outreaches to other small communities outside the Shire boundary. With a strong retail trade sector and an active business community, many visitors are surprised at the variety of shopping within the town.
