ECSA: Launch of a “Child Product Safety Guide: Potentially Dangerous Products”
The European Child Safety Alliance (ECSA), its country partners and three key sponsors (Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Kid Rapt Ltd., and the French Consumer Safety Commission (CSC)) have recently established a guide to help reduce child injuries.

The Guide is meant to raise awareness and educate consumers and professionals to recognise the hidden hazards that a child encounters with products in their daily life and ways to prevent injuries resulting from these products. It provides comprehensive information on 26 products posing most frequent injury risks to children according to different European experts.
For each product the reader is provided with information on:
- safety issues;
- dangers for children;
- information to look for when buying or prior to using the product;
- instructions to use the product in a safe manner.
