Spread the word about window covering cord safety.
Window Covering Safety Month is supported by industry and safety experts. This campaign urges parents and caregivers to go “Cordless For Kids” and check window coverings for exposed or dangling cords which can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children.
The Window Covering Safety Month Toolkit seeks to do the following during the month of October:
Educate parents, caregivers, and public health stakeholders others about this danger and to promote the use of only cordless window coverings or those with inaccessible cords in homes with young children.
Urge parents and caregivers to check their window coverings for exposed or dangling cords, which can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children and replace with cordless products.
Promote the replacement of older products and those with accessible cords with those that are marked with the Best for Kids™ certification label which are available at all major US retailers. These products are cordless or have inaccessible cords.
