Woolworths Childsafe Research and Educational Centre opens

 

Childsafe South Africa now has a dedicated Research and Educational Centre built at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital, where their experienced staff can focus on improving child safety and injury prevention. The Woolworths Childsafe Research and Educational Centre offer education and skills training programmes to patients' families as well as the general public on child safety. It will also conduct essential research through the collection of relevant trauma data. By providing input into child safety legislation, adequate and appropriate standards regarding children's products and safer environments are created. The centre hosts a 'Safety Demonstration House' that models existing setups in lower income households where parents/care-givers can learn how to best assemble their home (particularly kitchen, bathroom and living room areas) to prevent and reduce the incidence of child accidents and injuries.
