Safety on Deck
When using toxic chemicals try not to use them around your children, if possible. If you have to use the products around your children, be sure to keep the containers in your sight at all times.
KEEP IT CLEAN
SMOOTH IT OUT
NO FALL ZONE
Wide openings are something to look out for. Decks, like interior stair railings, should not allow spaces that are larger than 4 inches apart. This helps prevent small, mobile children from slipping through. Be sure to install a gate at the top of deck stairs. This not only helps to prevent falls, but also keeps curious children from wandering off the deck.
Making your deck safe for your baby and children is easier than you might think; be aware of the potential dangers, and take action before the outdoor season gets underway. Following these simple tips will help you have a fun and memorable outdoor season.
