Sally Trelford: The most dangerous thing is the oven, the fact that he could open the oven and that he gets hurt from the outside. So you need to be very careful, particularly if you are cooking something that's on for a long time. And then pans overhanging the hob (ph), handles that could be reached and grabbed with little fingers.
The work surface mostly is high enough that he can't reach many things; but, again, anything overhanging that he could pull off and drop things on his head. He has got into cupboards, he gets into the fridge, he gets into most places, gets into the bin, but so far we've managed to avoid any injury.
Roger Vincent: People often talk about child-proofing homes, and at RoSPA we say that it is almost impossible to do. What is childproof one day will not be childproof the next. It's a good idea to look around your home and try to anticipate any dangers. So don't have leg brokers, don't have carpets with fringes on. If the carpets get worn try to replace them, don't put to rubbish on polished surfaces which can of course lead to slips.
Judith Bennett: I have to keep an eye on her yet she is only 15 months. Just to make sure she doesn't make a bout for a particularly high chair which she could probably climb up, but would have no idea about coming down and that would be a terrific fall for her.
Roger Vincent: You can help yourself by putting things like corner protectors on edges, so that means that the severity of an injury may not be as great if the child does have a fall. The tidiness thing will be a big help. But we need to look around our home as well for things like not putting chairs into windows. Because a child who can't climb one day, can climb the next and if you let the window open it's so easy for the child to get out and we get tragedies like that each year.
Sally Anne Taylor: We have got stair gates stairs. Emily has also got stair gates that runs across her bedroom door as well because she is actually in the bed now and not in couch. Because Emily's bedroom is at the top of the stairs I have put a stair gate there. We always make sure that things like brooks and that, the brook that we got in the line just got anti-slip white mat underneath so it doesn't move the brook.
Roger Vincent: Glazing is a problem. Houses that had been built in the last 10 years or so should be fitted with safety glazing. And any glazing get low level for instance the doors or panels by the side of the doors should be safety glazing or at least have a shatter proof film over it. If you live in an older house it maybe necessary to replace you a glazing if you do want to be ultra safe.
Sally Anne Taylor: In the kitchen I always make sure that the kettle lead is kept towards the back, any leads around the house are always kept out of the way. And if any plugs aren't being used, then I always put the protection child care socket in. When I am cooking if Emily comes into the kitchen I always make sure that pan handles and things are a way turned to the back. It just mainly safety all time especially when you have got small children.
