As part of the National Safety Council’s National Safety Month this June, the NSC released a report about preventable injuries and the top risks in four different age groups. Preventable injuries are the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. Safety is a choice we need to make each day, and we all face a variety of risks throughout our lives. Being aware of the top risks can help you make safe decisions for yourself and your loved ones.
Under 12 Months of Age – Mechanical suffocation is the leading cause of death for infants by a preventable risk. To guard against this, have infants sleep in a crib, not in the parent’s bed. Place infants on their backs to sleep. And, keep stuffed animals and blankets out of cribs.
