The following are examples only. There can be more.
- Make sure sink and bathtub drain plugs are removed when not in use. Water can accumulate and drown babies.
- Slippery floor. Ensure the floor is dry and free from slippery items like soap bars. Wear slippers if necessary.
- Buckets, bathing basins (for babies) should be emptied to prevent babies drowning.
- Keep cleaning agents (e.g. toilet cleaners, bleach) in safe containers and in a cool dry place.
- Do not mix cleaning agents. Poisonous gases like chlorine may be released.
- Good ventilation required.
- Sharp items such as knives and can openers should be kept in safe places.
- Slippery floor due to water and grease. Clean it up.
- Close washing machine doors when not in use to prevent babies from getting trapped.
- Be careful when using gas stoves. You may get burned.
- Use oven glove when using the oven. The oven can reach 250 degrees Celcius.
- Clean up loose items, food packaging and grease from the working top. They may catch fire!
- Use countdown timers if necessary to remind you to turn off the stove. This prevents fires.
- Good ventilation required. This prevents carbon monoxide poisoning.
- No metallic items in the microwave. It may explode.
- Do not use cleaning agents near food. They may be harmful.
- Cooking equipment use a lot of electricity e.g. 2000-3000W on average. Plug them into independent sockets to prevent overload--which may lead to fires.
Living room and bedroom:
- Some household electrical appliances, especially heaters and air-con, use a lot of electricity. Use independent sockets.
- Better housekeeping to reduce trip hazards.
- Clean up loose items to prevent babies from eating them.
- Use dummy plugs to block power sockets when not in use. This prevents babies from trapping their fingers and get electrocuted.
- Fold up the duvet (on the bed). Babies may get trapped under it and suffocate.
- Lock up the window grilles to pervent people from falling out.Source(s): Own experience
