Most of the more than 200,000 injuries occur when a child falls from the equipment. There should be a 12-inch depth of wood chips, mulch, sand, or pea gravel, or mats made of safety-tested rubber or fiber material on the surface of the playground .

Soccer : Soccer Many people don't associate soccer with injury. One source of trouble is the soccer goal. To prevent soccer goals from tipping over, make sure they're anchored into the ground. You can use: auger-style anchors that screw into the ground; semi-permanent anchors, which require a permanently secured base that is buried underground combined with the use of tethers or bolts to secure the goal; peg, stake, or j-hook style anchors that are driven into the ground; or sandbags or counterweights if the goals are indoors.

Tips from www.GuardianAngelBracelet.com Window Blind Cords : Window Blind Cords Look at the blinds in your house, at your child's daycare or their school. You or the teacher should cut the loop on two-corded horizontal blinds and attach separate tassels to keep kids from getting entangled in the cords. Vertical blinds, continuous loop systems, and drapery cords use looped cords to function. Do not cut these loops. Instead, install a permanent tie-down device.
